To the Editor:John K. Teahen Jr. makes an excellent point in his Oct. 22 column, "There ought to be a license for sport-utility drivers," but it leads to some questions, specifically:
What knowledge should SUV drivers have in order to attain sufficient competence with their vehicles? What practical training and practice should they have?
Where do those people go now to learn what they need to know? How much does it cost? How much time is involved? Who gives the instruction? What makes the instructors qualified?
Other than the Land Rover program, I don't know of anyplace where one can turn to attain sufficient competence for sport-utilities.
Do you think that ought to change?
