There is no doubt that a driving test plays an important role to minimalize accidents on the roads. Some people hold a position that one single test is needed. However, having periodic driving tests throughout lives is a must and stands very a different good way which I am in a total agreement of that statement indeed. This essay will sketch out why having periodic driving test is a necessity.
Driving tests and licenses tend to be a necessity supposed to be had by people who drive car or even motorcycle. To drive vehicles, everyone has to pass the driving test until they finally get the driving licenses. However, even people have got the driving licenses cannot avoid them from any accidents. As far as I’m concerned, bad driving which had by incompetent driver influences the high number of accidents. Due to the bad drivers, they cause many lethal accidents and huge traffic jam. According to the data took by the polices during 2010, there were a lot of victim died in Semarang. Those accidents will decrease if people have to take periodic driving tests during the whole lifetime. The driving tests are needed to evaluate each person’s physical and mental health. The physical health can be measured by the endurance and agility periodically while the mental illness cannot be had by each person whose ages meet the license’s criteria. The periodic times here mean approximately every three, five or ten years, depend on the regulation will be made by the government. And for the cost, people only have to pay 20 per cent of the first driving test fee.
Nevertheless, there is a little evidence to support the view that periodic driving tests can be brought into people’s lives. It will cost a lot of money than one single test because some people assume that periodic tests will not only waste your money but also times. But, it seems to me that one single driving test cannot evaluate physical and mental health periodically. Because in my opinion, even people have had driving license, they might get mental disorders or physical disturbances at any times.
In conclusion, taking driving tests frequently throughout lives can decrease the high number of accidents than one single test. When people assume that one single test only waste less money and fewer times, while in my point of view, periodic driving tests only have to be paid 20 per cent of the first payment and make you competent enough tested regularly. It will give some benefits to people because the physical and mental health can be measured to save not only you but people suffered from lethal accidents indirectly. In short, your driving capability will be improved more and shunned away from creating high accidents rates.
