It has been reported that driving tests are to become much harder, and more instruction will be required than hitherto. At present to take the test following professional tuition costs at least £1000. These proposed new measures will double that at the very least. Add on the insurance and it could easily require £3000 to become a licenced driver.
The cost will become out of reach for the great majority of young people, other than those with well-off parents. Does anyone think that will stop thousands of young people (especially car-mad boys) from driving all the same?
