The Freedom Of Driving

Learning to drive can be an uphill struggle at times. Many of us have battled with various aspects of the process of being a learner driver, and ultimately overcome the challenges we faced to pass our driving tests. And there’s really no feeling quite like it.

After passing your test, you are given not just a pink license, but a license to exercise your freedom in a way you never could until now. Suddenly it feels like the world is your oyster – Nowhere is off-bounds, and you get to make the most of this newfound experience behind the wheel of your very own car.

Do Your Bit For Road Safety

As a driver, when you pass your driving test and finally receive your pink license, you are not only being given the keys to a vehicle and to the freedom that goes along with it – You are also being given a huge responsibility to drive safely to protect yourself and others around you.

This responsibility should not be taken lightly – You are in charge of the lives of all of your passengers as well as strangers on the roads around you. So respect this, and make sure to do your bit to make sure you live up to the task at hand.

Watch Out For Driving Surprises

There’s a certain safety that you feel when you’re in the process of learning to drive. You know your instructor would not intentionally put you into an unusually difficult or dangerous situation, and even should the worst happen, the dual controls will likely come in useful to prevent an accident!

But what about once you’ve passed your test? Unfortunately driving is not always as straightforward as we would like – At some point or another, you are bound to face some nasty surprises when you’re out driving. This is why it is always best to keep your eyes open, stay alert and maintain concentration at all times, so that should an event occur, you can handle it in the best way.

Summertime Driving

At last – Summer is here! After some dreary spells at the start of this summer, it seems that the rain has washed itself away and we can now at last enjoy some actual sunshine and warmer temperatures as we approach the end of June!

If you plan to be out driving this summer, make sure to exercise due caution. The hot weather brings more people out, so the roads will be busier and therefore more dangerous – So always keep your eyes open.

Learning Auxiliary Controls

The driving test can be a daunting challenge to many youngsters, as it covers a wide variety of things, including manoeuvres, the show-me-tell-me section and independent driving, to test you on your ability to follow directions without guidance from the examiner.

One section that is often not mentioned is the auxiliary controls. These include the headlights, windscreen wipers, and indicators. Although these seem fairly minor in the scale of your whole driving test, they are just as important to passing as everything else – So make sure you know how to use yours!

Leaving A Roundabout

So you’re working your way through your driving lessons, and so far everything seems to be going swimmingly. You’ve learned the basics of the car controls, mastered being able to pull away and stop, and are perfect in going in a straight line – What else is there to learn?

As it turns out, Roundabouts are one of the main challenges that new learners struggle with, particularly when joining or leaving an island. Always remember to allow traffic from the right, and to only move when it’s safe to do so – And to always indicate prior to leaving the roundabout.

Learning The Road Signs

If you have recently passed your Theory exam, or if you’re still building up to this, you are probably more than familiar with being able to understand instructions for being on the road. Road signs are one of the main ways you will be able to identify potential hazards when you’re behind the wheel.

We here at Britannia recommend a thorough understanding of Road Signs to help you become a better driver. Making sure that you are familiar with all possible variations of roads signs, including their subtle differences, will help streamline the process of you passing your driving test with flying colours.

Driving – Revision Vs Experience?

As a learner driver, you are probably used to hearing lots of tips and titbits of advice people will give you that will help you to pass your driving test – Some may say to spend more time behind the wheel as practise for your practical test, whereas others will recommend to cram for your Theory instead – All we know is that everyone is different, and so we all learn differently!

For some, getting a mass of theory knowledge under your belt is vital to ensuring practical success, but there are also those of us that can’t wait to get behind the wheel and start putting those theory skills into action. Whatever the best way is for you, we wish you the best of luck!
