    Yeah my sister told me about that yesterday or Tuesday, as her test is booked Oct & she said they're bringing this in.

    Personally i think they'd be better bringing in as a must:

    * night driving (i guess some people can't do this though?)
    * educating folk in the event of an insurance claim - what to do etc
    * bay parking should be a must - isn't on our test route.

    My brother just passed on Tuesday, so he's lucky.

    I wouldn't see it as a mega problem really, my daughter is learning to drive now and I think it would make people more observant when taking their tests.

    Anyway, Im glad I took my test in 1988 because we didn't even have to do the theory test then lol

    i think theyre all good ideas except the driver attitude test as that changes to much in a single drive to really be counted

    I approve, although glad it doesn't apply to me. However my favourite part is the lowering of the drinking limit! About time too.

    I'm confused

    How can you legally be driving if you've never taken a driving test?

    Never said I have never taken a test, just said I have never taken a car test


    I got "Vehicle ,Light" added to my licence when I passed my HGV (LGV) test at Church Crookham whilst in The Mob.
