Accompanying drivers, whether ADI or unqualified escorts, will be required to sit in on all car practical test and the test debrief from October 2010.
Other key proposals, which are to be introduced in a number of phases over several years, include:
o The continued roll out across GB of new pre – driver qualification in safe road use

o The trial of a new 3D hazard perception test (HPT)
