New Restrictions on Foreign Licences

0 Comment

There were some EU drivers who were able to exchange their driving licence for a UK one even though they hadn’t  taken a test of an equal standard to that of the UK.

Under new rules foreign drivers must now prove they have passed an appropriate driving test before getting  a British Licence, said the road safety minister, Stephen Hammond.

The change in the law came into force on the 11th January 2013.
