Motion text

That this House notes with concern news that the Government has delayed without explanation changes to licensing rules for cars with trailers, previously due to come into implementation on 15 November 2021; notes that all tests for those seeking to be licensed to drive cars with trailers were cancelled in anticipation of test requirements being removed, and tests have not been reopened; voices concern that a growing number of drivers, particularly young learners, will be left unable to drive legally with trailers and unable to obtain an upgraded licence via testing; and calls on the Government to clarify its intentions regarding trailer licensing and testing urgently.
