Should people who fail their driving test twice be refused a license?
We got a very interesting Facebook message into the show that I want you to have a listen to.
I have heard you speak about drivers and laws around them on your show before. Well I think I have something for you to discuss.
My niece is a god awful driver. I do not feel bad about saying this. I have told her myself. She is 28 and has failed her driving test three times. The gas thing is – she is still driving. She drove out of the test centre three times after failing it – in what other country would that happen?
I know the Gardai are trying to clamp down on learner drivers but they can’t catch all of them, what do you think of actually telling some people that they are terrible drivers and that they shouldn’t drive?
What I mean is – if a person fails the driving test more than twice, they shouldn’t be allowed to drive. Not everyone is cut out for it. I have seen that personally with my niece. I am a bus driver myself so I am on the road all the time and I see the silly mistakes and terrible drivers which are, a lot of the time, learners.
I wonder does anyone else agree with me. Can you bring this up on your show please?
So what do you think of Fran’s message?
Should it be two strikes and you are out when it comes to driving test?
Realistically, if you can’t pass the test on the second go – are you really fit for the road?
Or maybe you think this is too harsh and people need to have a second, third or even fourth go at the test?
How many times did it take you to pass the driving test?
I want to know what you think of Fran’s message – do you agree with him?
So – should it be two strikes and you are out when it comes to driving test?
