CHANGE: DSA make two key alterations

Driving test rules for lorry, bus and coach drivers are set to change later this year, it has been confirmed.

In response to a public consultation which ran in 2013, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) have made two key alterations to the test.

The need to use a vehicle with eight-forward gear ratios for large test vehicles (category C) has been removed.

New rules also allow people taking category C and D tests in an automatic vehicle to also receive manual entitlement, if they already have it for cars, lorries or buses, with or without trailers.
