HC Deb 16 November 1955 vol 546 cc397-8
34. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether, in view of the fact that the one month's waiting time for driving tests is considerably lengthened because of lack of testing staff, he will consider extending the three months' limit for a provisional driving licence.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Clause 8 of the Road Traffic Bill now before Parliament proposes to extend the period of validity of provisional driving licences from three to six months.
