Re: KTW’s article of July 10 (‘Many questions over ride-hailing in B.C.’):
Yes, requiring a Class 4 licence is a barrier. So is requiring a Class 5 licence.
Neither is much of a barrier. I have a Class 4 licence. It really does not take very much to get one, but I found it very useful to study driving material again. I think I am a better driver as a result.
Any driver with a licence above Class 5 is subject to having medical and eye exams every couple of years.
It might be nice to know that your driver is healthy.
Far from wanting to make things easier, I am for making it a bit tougher.
A road test every five years might be a good idea for all classes of licences including Class 5.
