According to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L-plate, in Australia, drivers who have just received their driving licences must display 'P' plates and limits may be imposed on the power of their car engine - no more than 6 cylinders.
In France, drivers who have just passed their driving test must display an 'Apprentice' sign for 3 years.
In Japan, new drivers must display a Shoshinsha mark on the front and rear of their vehicle for the first year.
Does the LTA not think it a good idea to impose a limit on the power of car engines for new drivers - both local and foreign?
Also, can the LTA look into a system (of stickers or plates) that would make it easy to identify new foreign drivers. This is not to discriminate against foreigners. After all, vehicles with steering wheels on the other side have to display a 'Left Hand Drive' sign.
Finally, foreigners who want to drive in Singapore should be made to take a practical test.
