TIPS FOR NON-LEARNERS!

 

Every day we see countless examples of bad driving from people without L-plates. You often hear it asked how the hell did they pass their tests? Unfortunately any examiner can only assess someone on how they drive when they are on test. If someone proves they have reached the standard deemed to be acceptable then that is what the examiner can judge on. Many frustrating driving incidents are caused by a combination of people driving without due consideration for other road users, and sheer ignorance of the Highway Code. We see a number of incidents that are common sight on our roads, here I take the opportunity to discuss the more common ones and also offer some suggestions to prevent them from happening in the first place and others that can easily be avoided.

 

Despite the title of this section, it will prove a source of invaluable knowledge to anyone who has so far read ‘Tips for Learners’ as well as you who wants to know what is expected of you in your own ‘Driving Test’. Ultimately readers who have the ambition and willingness to improve their driving and have read ’What makes a good driver’ will also find this section the most absorbing as it tells you how to and how not to get in to some of the bad habits we see from our poor drivers.

 

This is the biggest section and includes some simple diagrams to help explain. In order to keep downloading time to a minimum it has been split up into sub sections. You can look at each topic one at a time.
