LOWERING the minimum driving age from 17.5 to 17 and modernising the drivers' licence examination by introducing computers and appropriate software are among the measures under review by the ministries of communications and justice.

During a session of the Road Safety Council on Monday, attended by Communications Minister Marios Demetriades, Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou, and Nicosia District Police Chief Demetris Demetriou, it was decided that the council should also be convened more often.

"Road safety is one of the priorities of both the communications and the justice ministries," Demetriades said.

He revealed that using computers during exams for a driver's licence, as well as lowering the minimum driving age, had been tabled and will be discussed further during the next session.
