§ Mr. Watkinson
Conditions for the grant of driving licences are among the matters dealt with in the new Road Traffic Act. Section 16 restricts the right of those who have held a driving licence in the past to obtain a new licence without passing a driving test to those who have held a licence, or have passed a test, within the preceding ten years. This 37W Section is already in force. Section 18 makes provision for restrictions on the grant of provisional licences to persons who fail to submit themselves for a test. This Section will be brought into force next year.
