Driving Lessons in Derby - Driving Test Age Rise Considered
This week the BBC announced that teenagers could have to wait a year longer before they are allowed to take their driving test. The government is considering issuing only 12-month probationary licenses at the age of 18 in a bid to cut accidents involving younger drivers.
Also, new drivers, including those taking driving lessons, could also face a curfew between 22:00 and 05:00 unless a passenger aged over 30 was in the car. The recommendations involve a one-year ‘learner stage’ beginning at 17, during which time drivers would have to total at least 100 hours of daytime driving and 20 hours of night-time driving under supervision. Learner drivers could then take their test at 18 and if they pass, will get a probationary licence and be required to display a green ‘P” plate for one year.
