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.
