17 (and 1 of the wrong answers was the more prudent option).  Test passed 1968.

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

18 I also passed over  50 years ago  at 17. Such a shame that our train service locally forces me to use that licence to drive to events in Bath from Melksham so I can get back home.
