Health Ministry proposes mandatory first aid training for drivers

A new Health Ministry proposal would require drivers to receive first aid training before they get a driver’s license, the daily Hodspodárske Noviny wrote on October 1.

Under the proposal, people who want a driving license would have first to pay for eight hours first aid training as of next year. All applicants for a driver’s license would have to show written confirmation that they completed the training.
