New Driver Reforms Put To Parliament.


The government has been asked to overhaul the current learn to drive system, leading road safety charity Brake is asking MP’s to make serious changes whereby on passing a driving test a 17 year old gets a full license. The primary focus is to reduce the number of deaths of those under 25. One in eight driving licenses are held by under 25’s yet one in three drivers who die are under 25. The proposal is that a “graduated driving license” be introduced, a number of potential proposals have been put forward these include the following. A minimum period of learning before taking a test, after passing the test they would able to drive unsupervised with number of restrictions, the time of day they can drive, age limit on the passengers they can carry, lower alcohol limit, second test at the end of the two year period. This is supported by the insurance industry who says that reducing road deaths will bring down the cost of insurance for everyone, which will be good news for all not to mention a reduction in the tragic loss of so many young lives which has to be a must.
