Use of hearing aid allowed in driving license test next spring 

December 10, 2015  

The National Police Agency decided to amend he second-class license in the Road Traffic Law enforcement regulations for driving a taxi, a bus, etc. on December 10 to allow the use of a hearing aid in the hearing test. 

The regulations will be proclaimed at the middle of December and be carried out on April 1, 2016. It'll be a chance of business opportunity for a Deaf/deaf person.

When hoping for license acquisition, a Deaf/deaf person is able to attend a driving school before April, 2016.
