Any person who gained a driving licence after 1997 is required to take another driving test with trailer in order to gain the entitlement. I would propose that this be scrapped and all licences carry the trailer entitlement.

Why is this idea important?

This restriction effects business as younger empolyees cannot operate vehicles without going through excessivly expensive training for little pratical benefit. It also has a greater impact on the equestrian and rural communities. Most people are not aware of the restriction and continue to drive trailers without the licence which invalidates the insurance. A repeal of this law would have a massive pratical benefit.
