London looks at tougher driving tests

Posted in General by testing in London on January 4, 2007


London, England – Britain could introduce tougher driving tests in a bid to cut the number of deaths in road crashes.

The Department for Transport says the proposals being looked at could mean learner drivers having to complete a minimum period of practice before being allowed to take their test, similar to the 120-hour requirement that exists in Sweden.

A DFT report from 2000 found that, in one in 10 driving tests, examiners had to intervene by grabbing the handbrake or steering wheel or using the dual controls to avoid an incident.
