• Standard Licence Application Forms.
• • The Royal Automobile 'Club recently announced a scheme to remind members and associate-members of the' dates of expiry of their driving licences, and. the Club has now taken a further step by isening a, standard form of rsaplication for a new or renewed licence to drive a motor vehicle. Hitherto, before renewing a licence or obtaining a new one, a driver of a motor vehicle was faced with the preliminary trouble of procuring a form of application from the local licensing authority, each authority,iss-aing its own particular form.
The R.A.C. has drawn up a standard form of application commcn to all licensing authorities, and the Ministry of Transport, after circularizing the authorities, has now given its official approval to the form.
