NI learner driver changes planned
Radical changes are being considered to the rules governing learner drivers, Environment Minister Alex Attwood has said.
Mr Attwood said people should be able to learn to drive on motorways.
He is to consider allowing them to travel at 70mph on the motorway once they had passed their test, instead of the current 45mph limit.
The minister said he would also consider allowing people to obtain a licence earlier than 17.
