Graduated driver licensing will again be discussed by MPs next month, as part of an inquiry into young and novice driver safety. GDL is a scheme which places restrictions on new drivers, such as not being able to drive at night – or not driving with passengers under a certain age in the car.
Its introduction has long been debated by the Government, who in 2019 committed to review and consult on GDL as part of its road safety action plan. The issue will be raised during the first evidence session of the Transport Committee’s relaunched inquiry into young and novice drivers, which takes place on 2 September.
MPs will hear from Dr Neale Kinnear, head of behavioural science at TRL, along with Elizabeth Box, head of research at the RAC Foundation, and Mary Williams OBE, chief executive of Brake.
