§ Mr. Will Owen
asked the Minister of Transport what publicity is currently being given to the Road Traffic (Driving Instruction) Act 1967; and when he intends to bring it into force.
§ Mr. Marsh
I give publicity to the Register of Approved Driving Instructors on every suitable occasion. The advantages of going to a Ministry of Transport Approved Instructor for driving tuition are brought to the attention of every learner driver by means of a leaflet issued with his first provisional driving licence. Posters are also displayed in many places throughout the country. I hope to make an announcement shortly about compulsory registration of professional driving instructors.
