Drivers to be tested every 5 years?
There are some shocking drivers on our roads that make you wonder how they gained their licence. Should drivers undergo driver tests every 5 years? Clinton Maynard gives listeners a run through the test.

Elderly people and those living alone have in the past slipped off our radar in a handful of cases. Now comes a monitoring system that will hopefully see this become a thing of the past as George & Paul reveal.
Our pollies really are precious. Paul Murray reveals the new law changes made to stop the media from taking the mickey out of politicians with The Chaser's Chas Licciardello. They really are sensitive pets.
This is but another cash-cow scheme invented by a useless Roads and Maritime Services bureaucrat for infliction on citizens the vast majority of whom are compliant with the raft of ever changing foolhardly traffic laws. I have no confidence at all in the RMS - the same old bomb jalopy with a fresh coat of paint.Justin Benson Monday 3 December, 2012 - 9:27 AM

The RMS changes the rules constantly, use of white foglights to dazzle the oncoming drivers was once $253 and 3 demerit points now it is only $99 and 1 demerit point.
It is a more serious offence to put your wheels on the white edge line than it is to stop other motorists from seeing the road in front of them!
LANES, MERGING, EDGE LINES
Drive on/over continuous white edge line
$232 2 points
Road Rules 2008
Rule 150 (1)
Use/allow use of light on/in vehicle likely/to dazzle
$99 1 point

Just do the testing right the first time pleeease. Continual testing is only for money raising. How about they test the testers every five years.Bill Sunday 2 December, 2012 - 9:25 PM
I don't think we need re-testing of all drivers. What I want to see is re-testing of the rotten damned drunken and other drug affected drivers. They are out there ready to cause variously,unnecessary catastrophies and needless deaths of pedestrians, motor cyclists and their equals that drive motor vehicles. It is an an absolute wanton disgrace in NSW,QLD,Victoria and the last labor party State of Sth Australia where there are too many drunken rotten boofheads and other drug affected fools on our roads.Justin Benson Sunday 2 December, 2012 - 9:06 PM
Re: Retesting for drivers.
My wife and I have been driving for 85 years combined without any points on our driving record. Why should we be tested?
People should be tested after an offence eg speeding. Can't resume driving until they pass a test. Perhaps they'll get sick of doing the test and follow the rules.Ron Vaughan Sunday 2 December, 2012 - 9:56 AM
