Driving tests overhauled from 2008

Driving tests will place more emphasis on driving independently, reacting to dangerous situations and dealing with heavy traffic and congestion as from next year, the driving licence authority CBR confirmed on Tuesday.

Instead of constantly being told to follow the examiner’s instructions, people taking their test will be asked to drive from A to B. The aim is to reduce the number of accidents involving newly-qualified drivers.
