Reversing to be dropped from L-test?

Reversing around a corner and three-point turns could be axed from the driving test - to make it harder for novice drivers to pass.

Under the Conservative Party plans, learner drivers would still have to prove they are capable of performing the manoeuvres with their instructor - before taking the test.

The 10 minutes saved by dropping these elements of the test would be dedicated to spending more time assessing a candidate's ability in traffic.

The Tory initiative was announced as the Government holds a consultation on a reform of the driving test.
