HC Deb 05 February 1958 vol 581 c1175
23. Mr. Hyde

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will exempt holders of Northern Ireland driving licences of long standing, who transfer their residence to Great Britain, from the obligation to undergo driving tests before being issued with driving licences in this country.

Mr. Nugent

My hon. Friend's proposal would require legislation. Whilst I do not think we could go as far as he proposes, we consider that there is a case for reciprocal recognition of driving tests, and will bear the possibility of legislation in mind.
