Has anybody got any idea whats going on with the talks of new driving laws for young drivers?
I have heard that if you are under 21 and get ANY points on your licience you get an immidiate ban and have to re-take your driving test :eek:

But this was the end of july i think, so i have no idea if these laws are going to be made or if they already have been made.
so does anyone know whats going on?

i personally think a ban for a while is a good idea not retaking the test.may stop some of the kids thinking because they have just passed there test there race drivers round my way.

well i passed my test (first time :) ) about 2 months ago now and the amount of stupid people around mine in range rover sports and X5's that think they own the road and cut corners right infront of you is unbelieveable

to be honest some young drivers are twats. people like us that mod are cars because we have a passion for them seem to drive normally.

a ban would be a good idea i think, test retake is bit harsh though.

end of the day thers always gunna b that small minority for those who put the time effort money into their cars.
down here i expect its the same as anywhere else the police stereo type anybody with modifications. hense why i never modified my corsa.

as for the driving laws being changed. scince i was 15(im now 20) the government have wanted to put the drivnig age up and do things like this and it never happens.

i doubt they will ban anyone who has points, thats just not gonna happen.
as for upping the age, im all for it. i hope they do it for moped chavs as well.

Fair enough a ban for racing, since that is dangerous, but a ban for getting say 3 points is a bit harsh the way it works with the 6 points seems to work pretty well anyway. Bans should be taken in the context of the offense commited not just tarring everyone with the same brush since they are young.
