§ Mr. Gresham Cooke
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation to what extent, under his regulations, persons are allowed to pass their driving tests on clutchless cars; and whether, in view of the fact that a person passing a test on a clutchless car is not necessarily qualified to drive a normal car, and that there are only a limited number of clutchless cars available in this country, he will, in the interests of road safety, revise the conditions applying to these driving tests.
§ Mr. Watkinson
Persons who wish to obtain a Group A driving licence are permitted to take the driving test on a clutchless car. I do not at present contemplate any change in these arrangements, but I am keeping the matter under review.
