§ 50. Mr. Langford-Holt
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he is aware that county councils are refusing to accept as evidence of an 359 applicant having passed a driving test the production of a War Office driving licence; and whether he will ensure that this evidence, when properly completed and in order, is accepted.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
Military drivers who pass the official driving test are issued with Army form A2039, and this is accepted by county councils. Councils cannot, however, accept the driving permit (Army form A2038) sometimes issued to soldiers, as the issue of this permit does not depend on passing the official test.
