HC Deb 08 November 1932 vol 270 c193

asked the Minister of Transport what steps are taken by his Department, in conjunction with local authorities or otherwise, to bring home to motorists the existence of the highway code, especially in view of the importance attached under the Road Traffic Act to a knowledge of this document?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

For 12 months after the issue of the highway code a copy was given to every applicant for a driver's licence, and a copy is now given to every person who applies for the first time for a driver's licence. Every motorist therefore should have a copy.
