HC Deb 28 July 1937 vol 326 cc3123-4W
Major Owen

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the serious disability imposed on ex-members of His Majesty's forces who have qualified, while on service abroad, for licences to drive motor vehicles by Section 6 (1) of the Road Traffic Act; and whether he is prepared to amend this section of the Act so as to enable such ex-Service men to take out driving licences in this country without taking out provisional licences and undergoing the test of competence prescribed by the Motor Vehicles (Driving Licences) Regulations, 1937?

Mr. Burgin

Under the existing regulations, the Board of Admiralty, the Army Council and the Air Council are already empowered to conduct tests of members of His Majesty's forces without charge.
