CHANGE: New rules confirmed

Several key changes to driving test rules for lorry, bus and coach drivers have been confirmed.

In effect from April 10, the need for eight-forward gear ratios for large test vehicles have been removed.

Changes will also allow those taking a lorry or bus test in an automatic vehicle to get a manual entitlement if they already have a manual entitlement for cars, lorries or buses, with or without trailers.

Finally, car licence holders aged 21 or over can now drive large trikes above 15KW power.
