HC Deb 25 May 1909 vol 5 c1156W

asked the Home Secretary whether, if a man fails in four attempts to pass the examination required by the regulations before he is granted a licence to drive a motor cab, he is thereby precluded for all time from being able to pass the required examination, and therefore unable to obtain a licence; and, if this is not the case, what period must elapse after the fourth attempt before he can again offer himself for examination?


A fifth test would only be allowed if there appears to be reasonable prospect of the man becoming a competent motor-cab driver. The interval between the fourth and the fifth test would be such period as the Commissioner might determine, but would not he less than two months.
