Kaye Don on Driving Licences.

SIR,—It is fairly generally recognised now that our rules with regard to the issuing of Motor-driving Lice3aces need amending in the direction of excluding persons who are never likely to become capable drivers.

I suggest that in the Application Form which is now required to be submitted, a clause should be added in which the applicant undertakes that, within a period of say three months, he will take steps to secure adequate tuition in driving and will master the Highway Code.

T13.e Post Office should then issue a temporary licence current for a maximum of three months, and only on presentation of a further application, attested by a declaration from a third party, to the effect that the applicant has received the necessary tuition and is now a competent driver, who also understands the Highway Code, would a full licence be granted. The third party testifying to the competency of the applicant might be any licenced driver who has held a licence for a period of not less than one year, whose licence is unendorsed, or by a recognised school of motoring, or by any other body recognised by the authorities as capable of giving such a certificate.

I am, yours, etc. KAYE DON. Oak Dene,

Weybridge, Surrey.
