Road accidents are more frequent these days and claim many lives each year. As a result, some people suggest that drivers should take regular driving tests throughout their lives, rather than one single driving test, to improve the situation. What do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of repeat driving tests? Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?
The upsurging number of private automobiles and reckless driving are the main contributing factors for the increased road death accidents these days. Here a few people argue that for the betterment of the current circumstances, the drivers should be under regular supervised driving tests instead of one sole driving test. I think conducting frequent driving tests is far more beneficial to the drivers because it can provide insight or awareness regarding their driving skills. Nevertheless, the higher number of driving tests can make a hardship on people’s life.
To embark with, introducing periodical tests in driving can reduce the count of road accidents. Sometimes drivers get outdated and more inept to new road rules and safety practices so. It is mandatory to take the tests. Moreover, the test takers can pay heed to their weaknesses while test-taking and can clarify the unresolved doubts. Apart from that, drivers can review or retouch their skills and can learn more about the new traffic rules and regulations; for example, if people who forgot the driving skill but have the licence these frequent test is an opportunity to reawaken their skill.
Despite the positive aspects, these regular driving assessments can impose an unessential pressure on the public. For taking the test, they have to prepare and pay for it and allocate time for the test in order to renew the licence. As a result, many people may tend to avoid the tests and roam around the city, get pulled over and fined for an outdated licence. Moreover, sometimes road accidents are not because of reckless driving the impoverished roads and the presence of potholes on the roads can also increase the number of cases. For instance, For taking an actual test, an entire day has to be dedicated in the motor vehicle departments, which is a more cumbersome task.
In conclusion, reoccurring driving tests improve people’s driving accuracy, make them aware of safety and laws, and find out potentially risky drivers. So the advantages outweigh the disadvantage.
