Licence can be 'revoked immediately' after roadside test

Drivers will be asked to read the number plate of a vehicle parked 20.5 metres away - the legal standard set by the DVLA.

From today, drivers in Wales could have their licences revoked immediately if they fail a roadside eye test.

South Wales Police officers are stopping motorists to carry out on-the-spot eye tests for the first time since tough new rules were introduced, which can speed up the process of revoking driving licences.
