New hurdle for learner drivers
A planned law change in Jersey will mean that people will have to pass a theory test before being allowed to drive any vehicle on the road.
At present, the holders of a provisional driving licence can drive a car under qualified supervision or ride a small motorbike after passing basic training.
Under the proposed change, the theory test can be taken at any time in the year before an application can be made for a provisional licence.
The move comes from the Comite des Connetables who fear learners are taking to the roads without an acceptable knowledge of the Highway Code.
If the change is approved, Jersey will become one of the few places in the world where the requirement is made.
