Introducing 3 wheeled transport for provisional licence holders

While on holiday in france i noticed the locals drive a 3 wheeled car or van on the road with out passing a test .

My idea is we adopt the same type of vehicle in the uk and have it restricted to 30mph and only allowed to operate on none dual carrage way or motorway roads.

The  current provisional motorcycle licence allows for this speed catagory and the CBT exam can be extended to cover this new form of transport so the aspect of safety will be addressed.

Simplification of minibus driving regulations

To change the complicated rules around category D on driving licences to allow those passing their tests after Jan 1997 to have the same rights to drive a minibus as those who passed before.

Driving licence numbers on insurance certificates

Instead of having just names on insurance certificates for vehicles, I suggest having names with driving licence numbers as well.  When an insurance company is approached by a member of the public seeking to take out a policy, all the details are taken in the usual way, with the addition of the driver's driving licence number and that of any other named drivers.

The insurance company then request from the DVLA confirmation that the licence is valid and that all the relevant points for driving offences have been declared.
