Learning to drive isn't just about reaching a stage where you can pass a driving test. It's about becoming a safe, confident driver with experience of a wide range of driving skills.?
Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident within the first two years of passing their driving test than at any other time in their driving career.
Although anyone who has recently gone through the nerve-wracking experience of a driving test would no doubt disagree, the test is actually the 'easy' part of learning to drive! It's the next part: driving alone without someone else looking out for you, and coming up against new experiences such as motorways, that's harder.?
Most drivers become safer drivers by covering more miles and experiencing a wider variety of driving situations.?The overall aim should never be to just pass the driving test. Your driving instructor should introduce you to as many different situations and conditions as possible. They should be dedicated to building your confidence and making you aware of hazards you may never have thought existed.?
Once you pass the test, experience comes with time. However, there is a way to gain a wider range of driving skills immediately, and that's by taking a Pass Plus course which allows you to:??
- Safely gain more driving experience
- Improve existing driving skills
- Acquire new driving skills
- Reduce the risk of being involved in an accident
- Obtain a discount on your car insurance?
Learning to drive? Learn to drive safely. Choose a driving instructor with years of experience and a dedication to the job and not only will you pass your test, you will become?a safe, confident driver with a skill that will serve you for life.
