Government urged to review driving licence documentation.

Posted by Freddy Morton

The Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) has called for a review of the driving licence documentation for caravanners and motorhome drivers, which may interest caravan taps owners.

According to the CCC's technical department there are a large quantity of queries about licensing requirements, particularly from over 70s who passed their test after January 1st 1997.

Director general of the CCC, Robert Louden, has written to the secretary of state for transport to urge the government to change the way licence issues are explained by DirectGov resources.

He believes that the document count should be reduced to enable people looking for information to navigate the site easily and remove ambiguity.

Mr Lounden said: "Often the members who contact us have tried to find information from DVLA sources but have failed or given up due to the complexities involved."

The Driving Standards Agency recently announced that it would be altering the driving test for drivers applying for a car and trailer licence to include an on-road braking test, intended to allow examiners to assess driving skills more thoroughly.
