Driving Test to Face an Overhaul?

With the driving test turning 80 years old this year, many are calling for an overhaul of the examination in order to modernise it and to protect more lives.

The biggest changes to the driving test have been relatively recent – From the introduction of a Theory test element in 1996, as well as the Hazard Perception test being introduced in 2002, and many are now saying it is time for an additional facelift to the 80-year old test.

Some of the suggestions include a compulsory section on driving in country roads, as well as making it mandatory for trainee drivers to practice driving in poor weather conditions as well as at night time.

What about you? If you could change one thing about the driving test, what would it be? Answers on a postcard – Or preferably in the comments section below!
