JUDICIAL ORDER TO OBTAIN A DRIVING LICENCE

RICHTERLICHE WEISUNG, EINE FAHRERLAUBNIS ZU ERWERBEN

In many cases persons convicted for driving without a driving licence, especially repeated offenders, are automatically banned from driving or from obtaining a driving licence. Many judges however attempt to remedy the situation by imposing on the accused the requirement to obtain a driving licence by lawful means. At first sight this appears sensible from an educational and prophylactic viewpoint. The courts however overlook the legal and psychological obstacles which tend to stand in the way of such ordinances. Such orders are in general only possible in the case of juveniles, and in the case of adults only when a sentence of imprisonment is suspended pending good behaviour. In the case of juveniles difficulties arise because of the minimum legal age for obtaining a driving licence. Further difficulties arise from the problems of costs for those concerned, the possibility of a necessary medical and psychological examination with a possible negative outcome, the question of committing the administrative authority to acceptance of such an order, the existence of an earlier driving ban, and the possibility of failure of the driving test. /TRRL/
