Cabinet revokes Gazette on age limit for three-wheeler drivers

The Cabinet of Ministers has revoked the Gazette Notification barring those below 35 years from obtaining three-wheeler driving licenses, government sources told the Daily News yesterday night. Transport and Civil Aviation Ministry had issued the gazette which permits only those above 35 years of age can apply for driving licence for three-wheelers.

The Cabinet of Ministers has insisted there should not be a bar on any age group although relevant Gazette notification has been issued by the Transport and Civil Aviation Ministry considering the soaring number of road accidents involving three wheelers in the country.

It was revealed that over 1.2 million families depend on the three wheeler service. Finance and Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera on Monday said that a special agency would be established to regulate the three wheeler service by providing a proper training and guidance to those involved in the industry.
