Learning to drive is a big step for anybody, and involves more than simply practicing driving. New drivers have to sign up for full driving instruction, and often have to complete both a classroom education and a practical, on-road training course. Continue reading
Number one is the fact that in the two years after you first pass your driving test, you are on probation and the quickest way to notch up those dreaded points is speeding. Any Magistrate will automatically give you three points for speeding and has the power to increase those points for any other factors he or she may consider to be relevant, such as a bald tyre. Any car you buy must therefore be in good order throughout, or you must be prepared to rectify any problems before you take to the road in it. Continue reading
Driving test candidates could benefit from a more local service as the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) carries out a trial exploring a new approach to test delivery.
As well as using conventional driving test centres, DSA is looking at whether tests could also be delivered from other venues such as local authority buildings, hotels or leisure centres.
The trials will provide practical car tests in selected areas that no longer have a local test centre, but still have a significant demand for tests. The aim is to provide a service for the local community and ensure that candidates are able to take their test at convenient locations.
Road Safety Minister Mike Penning said:
“I want us to be more flexible and innovative in delivering driving tests to make sure that we are offering people the best service possible wherever they live.
“Our aim is to provide a more local service that is both convenient for candidates and cost effective.”
The trials are due to take place in seven locations across Britain: Ashford, Ayrshire, Dumbarton, Louth, Warrington, Wiltshire and one location in Wales that is still to be decided. The trials will be monitored to assess any impact on levels of customer service and the cost of delivery, as well as making sure the integrity of the test is maintained.
DSA will then decide whether the trials can be rolled out to other areas without a test centre where there is a significant demand, and where suitable routes and venues can be identified.
The trials will only involve practical car tests; theory test centres will not be affected.
