Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations further amend the Motor Vehicles (Driving Licences) Regulations 1996 by modifying the provision which determines, for the purpose of interpreting those regulations, when a licence ceases to be in force. They substitute a new provision for regulation 4(3) of the Motor Vehicles (Driving Licences) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 1997, which is defectively drafted and which would otherwise come into force on 1st April 1997.

See the definitions of “prescribed” and “regulations”.
