All drivers should be re-tested

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Ref­er­ence the 26 April news story on test­ing the over-70s, this is a sub­ject I have been in­ter­ested in and have ac­tively been seek­ing a change in the law. We all passed our tests some years ago and are not re-tested. I see this as very dan­ger­ous – after all, most of our cars have to pass the MoT ev­ery year.

I have bad­gered the Gov­ern­ment to in­tro­duce a five-year test for ALL drivers re­gard­less of age. It would make the roads safer and in­sur­ance pre­mi­ums could drop to re­flect this. But so far, the Gov­ern­ment’s stance is that it won’t be pop­u­lar with vot­ers. A life is worth more than a vote, surely. David Hip­per­son, Dereham, Nor­folk
