Drink driving offenders will now have to pass a medical before they are allowed to drive again, says the Department for Transport.
Current rules have a loophole, where although drivers need to take a medical before getting a new driving licence, they are allowed to drive as soon as they have applied for their licence.
Road safety minister Stephen Hammond said: “These changes will tighten up the law on drink driving and will mean that the most dangerous offenders will have to prove they are no longer dependent on alcohol before they are allowed to get back behind the wheel.”
