§ Mr. Peter Bruinvels
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to require drivers of electric cars to pass a driving test and to hold a current driving licence; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The driver of a motor vehicle propelled by electrical power is already required to pass a driving test and to hold a current driving licence. These requirements do not, however, apply to the riders of electrically assisted pedal cycles, such as the Sinclair C5.
