The Driver and Vehicles Licensing Authority (DVLA) wishes to inform all persons who wish to acquire a driver’s license that, per Regulations 26 (5) (d) of the Road Traffic Regulations 2012, L. I. 2180, applicants who wish to acquire a driver’s license MUST first undergo a 48-hour basic driver training with a recognised driver training institution, certified by the DVLA, before being allowed to go through the driver license acquisition process and acquire a driver’s license.
The Authority will, from September 1, 2014, implement this provision in L. I. 2180 and will, therefore, require any person who wishes to acquire a driver’s license to prove that they have undergone the 48-hour driver training programme as per L. I. 2180.
The management of the DVLA advises all would-be drivers to, as a matter of importance and urgency, take steps to undergo this training programme, before September 1, 2014 in order to pave way for them to acquire the driver’s license.
