Bill Would Require Drivers To Retake DMV Test

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

A proposed bill before the legislature’s transportation committee would require drivers who are renewing their licenses to retake a written test on the rules of the road. If the written test is failed, the applicant would have to take an on-the-road skills test followed by the written test.

The bill doesn’t specify an age requirement, so as it is currently written all drivers who are renewing their licenses would have to retake the written test. But if passed, the law wouldn’t go into effect until 2016.

A public hearing on the bill is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. in room 2E of the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.

    I’m sure they’ll add an additional charge as well. Just another way for CT to make us broke! I do however believe there are a lot of people who shouldn’t be driving, but just because they pass a written doesn’t mean they obide by the laws put in place…just sayin
