Tests would help all drivers
WE HAVE a system in place for the training of motorists and heavy vehicles alike but a lot of the older heavy operators and car operators have never had to do the written test, as they just drove up to the police station, went for a quick lap around the block and voila - licence.
They need to bring in practical and written tests for your given class of licence every five years for everyone.
This would help, I guarantee it.
After 10 years or sooner, all licence holders would be up to speed.
Any tourist who come to our great country would have to sit the same test and this would also be a great thing.
Tell me I'm wrong.
It also is not age-specific so is a good thing.
It creates safety and real employment, takes the strain off all systems with flow-on of less road trauma and such.
