should the minimum driving age be increased from 17?Watch
A lot of people ie my dad drove a car before age of 17. He started driving at 13 I think, which means he now has around 40+ years of driving experience. .
The U.K. Age for driving has been 17 since 1930
Arguably, given the amount of traffic and complexity of the roads/cars now 18 could be better.
Personally, I think all drivers should have to learn road sense on mopeds or small motorcycles.
Make a mistake and it hurts. Most bikers make good drivers
I think it's less to do with age and more to do with stupidity. I've seen some proper idiots on the road who are obviously 30+. If you're sensible/mature at 17 and can drive a car with care and consideration for other road users then why shouldn't you be legally allowed to drive when there are absolute twonks driving who are 30/40/50/60?
