People planning to take the license test for 50cc scooters must now pass
practical test as well as the written test, the Directorate-General of Highways said Monday.
The policy was supposed to be enacted in June 1, but the highway authority decided to implement it six months earlier than the previously announced date because all the preparatory work has been completed.
“The new rule has gone into effect beginning January 1,” it said, citing that the announcement was made during the last week of December.
In the past, no road test was required for 50cc scooters, and people holding a license to drive a small passenger car were automatically qualified to ride a light scooter without having to get a separate license. [FULL STORY]
