    Full UK (not EU) driving licence
    Spoken English and numeracy tests
    Fully checkable background (CRB) - No letters saying your a nice bloke signed by a local bribe taker.

I won't hold my breath though.

Ditto what said in reply to Nidge2.


Well spotted. I misread the question. :oops:

Are you challenging Grandad for TDO's pedant of the year award BTW? :lol:

That's OK, I just could not make sense of the comments you both made, until I realised the inversion.

Challenge Grandad? not a chance!

Better CRB checks for non English drivers.

The thread is "What wouldn't you like the LC to put forward" - so you wouldn't like better checks?



Better checks yes but even stringent tests for non English Drivers not just a letter of conformation from their Embassy in London.
