Transport

Draft Motor Vehicles (Driving Licences) (Amendment) (No. 5) Regulations 2021

The following is an extract from the Third Delegated Legislation Committee debate on 13 December on the draft Motor Vehicles (Driving Licences) (Amendment) (No. 5) Regulations 2021.

It is worth noting that around 6 million drivers who passed their test before 1 January 1997 can already drive a car with a trailer without having to take a separate test. This change affords that same entitlement to drivers who passed the test after 1997.

[Official Report, Third Delegated Legislation Committee, 13 December 2021, Vol. 705, c. 4.]

Letter of correction from the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport, the hon. Member for Copeland (Trudy Harrison):

An error has been identified in my speech.

The correct information should have been:

It is worth noting that around 16 million drivers who passed their test before 1 January 1997 can already drive a car with a trailer without having to take a separate test. This change affords that same entitlement to drivers who passed the test after 1997.
