    The Camping and Caravanning Club has urged the government to review its driving licence documentation for caravanners and motorhome drivers.

    Director General Robert Louden has sent a letter to the Secretary of State for Transport, the Rt Hon Philip Hammond MP, asking for a review of the Directgov resources with a view to reducing the document count, allowing easier navigation and removing ambiguity.

    Driving licence questions are dealt with by the Club’s Technical Department and a large proportion of queries are about licensing requirements, especially for the over 70s and members who have passed their driving test after January 1, 1997.

    Louden said: “We often tend to pass our driving test and then forget about our licence but with several changes to entitlements over the years, it is now more important than ever that those who tow or drive heavier vehicles check their licence to ensure they are qualified to drive their unit.

    “Often the members who contact us have tried to find information from DVLA sources but have failed or given up due to the complexities involved.

    “We hope the Secretary of State for Transport takes our comments on board and looks to improve the situation,” he added.

    “We look forward to his response and hope we can work together on this.”
