  2. New proposals to improve the driving test including incentives to be better prepared form part of a consultation launched by government today. Driving test •biggest shake up of the driving test in a generation •proposals for a ‘cashback’ incentive for the driving test, introducing in a deposit which is returned to the driver if they pass, encouraging learner drivers to take their test when they are ready •government wants to hear your views on how to improve the service offered by DVSA and DVLA The Department for Transport (DfT) has launched proposals to improve the driving test as part of a wide ranging review of motoring services in Great Britain. Only 21% of driving tests result in a first time pass. The majority of tests are repeat examinations. Reduced driving test fee Under the new proposals the driving test fee would be reduced by requiring learner drivers to pay a deposit when they take their test, which they get back if they pass. This will help make sure learner drivers are: •better prepared for taking their test and driving independently •less likely to have an accident in the months following the test •taking their test when they are ready and confident of passing An incentive to be prepared Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “We want to make learning to drive safer and more affordable. This change will give those who pass first time some money back and provide an incentive for learners to be more prepared before they take their test. These common sense proposals mean that all learner drivers can feel the benefit. “This consultation is a really important step and we want to hear all views.” Steve Gooding director of the RAC Foundation said: “We support measures that will encourage learner drivers to get the experience they need to pass their test first time with flying colours, rather than barely scraping through or failing and having to repeat the process a few months down the road at yet more expense.” Improving road safety and increasing efficiency The consultation also sets out proposals to: •introduce more driving test appointment times, including weekends and evenings •offer tests from a range of venues •review fees for all services provided by motoring agencies •change providers for some services •combine services at motoring agencies The consultation is part of the government’s ongoing work to streamline public services and save the taxpayer money.

  6. Very confused: Registered partially sighted in 2007 and at the time, had one diagnosis and in 2010, was diagnosed with another eye condition. At that point, I was under the eye infirmary and would get eye tests whenever I was seen by them and was usually given a prescription for new glasses yearly. I have a feeling I've now been discharged from them. (not heard anything since appointment in October last year) I usually go to Specasvers to get glasses and went there this year to get some new glasses and was told that I now only need eye tests every 2 years. I querieed this and he said it's because after 18, you only need them tested every 2 years. Um, I'm 24 and have had yearly eye tests for as long as I could remember. Can anyone tell me where I can find the criteria for yearly eye tests please? This has made no sense to me. My vision changes a lot, although it's hard to know whether this is due to tiredness or whether my vision has actually changed. I usually need new glasses almost every year. I know I can get them done more often if there is a change in my eyesight. But wanted to know if the optician was right.
