Whilst the scheme’s supporters foresee improved levels of professionalism among drivers, the likelihood is that many older drivers will leave the industry by the end of 2014 rather than have to contemplate the scenario of hours spent in classrooms learning what they think they already know well enough, just to get a ticket (a so-called ‘Driver Card’) to keep their jobs.

Criminal Offences Since 1 April 1998 convictions for offences such as falsifying records (eg tachograph charts), forgery (eg of insurance documents or a driving licence) and fraudulent use or display of an official document (eg an ‘O’ licence disc or vehicle excise licence), including aiding and abetting these offences, have branded the offender a criminal.
