Drive With Caution All The Time

As a driver, you are likely more than aware of potential hazards that can befall you in your day-to-day driving. Whether it be adverse weather conditions, dangerous road users, or even problems with your own vehicle, there are certainly no shortage of dangers to drivers.

Our best piece of advice we can offer? Drive safely, all the time. Whether it’s daytime, night time, in the week, the weekend, Summer or Winter, it doesn’t matter – The responsibility of being a driver requires you to give your utmost attention to being behind the wheel at all times.

Safe driving (All the time!) from Britannia!

Waiting In The Car

After you’ve been driving for a while, you tend to become very familiar with your vehicle – Aside from driving, many of us eat, drink, work, socialise and even sleep in our cars, so we tend to be very comfortable when in the driving seat.

One aspect of driving that many don’t seem to think about too much however is waiting in the car. Perhaps picking up the partner from school, a friend from their home, or the kids from school – Wherever you are waiting, make sure to always park in a safe area and to keep an eye out around you at all times.

Stopping At A Red Light

Sometimes driving can be a stressful activity – Especially when we’re in a rush somewhere. Perhaps you’ve been stuck in rush hour traffic on your morning commute, or maybe you’re running late for an important appointment, and are trying to make up for lost time.

Whatever the reason, there is no excuse for not stopping at a red light. Traffic lights exist for the safety of all around, drivers and pedestrians alike, and not only is failing to stop at a red light a criminal offence, it risks putting innocent lives at risk.

Smarter Drivers Are Safer Drivers

Many people tend to think of driving as a physical activity – Of course, most drivers are sat down whilst behind the wheel (Or they could be breaking a law!), yet most still think that operating a car is more physically demanding than mentally.

Yet we’re here to challenge that notion. We at Britannia believe that the best drivers are those that are smart behind the wheel – Practising smart driving makes you safer, allowing you to anticipate dangers far earlier than those who are just fast at responding to them later on. So be a safe driver – Be a smart driver.

That’s what we’re here for. Not only do we help budding drivers to pass their tests, we also offer fantastic refresher courses for drivers of all ages to improve their skills. So why not take the chance to try and push yourself to become a better driver this year?

Courteous Driving Tips

In a lot of ways, the act of driving reflects life in general. Sometimes easy, sometimes difficult, sometimes pleasant and enjoyable, sometimes a chore or stressful – And always much better in the summer than the winter!

Just life in our day-to-day lives, it is always better to be courteous when behind the wheel. Don’t overtake slower drivers, give them the time to get where they need without any additional pressure, and if you see a fellow driver struggling to exit a junction, why not slow down and allow them to leave safely? We’re sure you would be glad if it was the other way around.

All Drivers Could Benefit From Driving Lessons

How well do you think you drive? Although most people would say that they are impeccable behind the wheel, if you ask yourself honestly, you would probably be able to identify one or two points of your own driving ability where you think you could improve.

Some people may struggle with manoeuvres for many years after passing the driving test, whereas others may just like an all-round refresher course to keep them at the top of their driving game. Whatever your age, experience, or reason for wanting additional driving lessons, Britannia offers courses for all drivers.

Show Respect To Learner Drivers

We are all familiar with facing different frustrations when out and about driving – Maybe you’re getting stuck in traffic on your morning commute, or perhaps your own vehicle is not performing as well as it should be – There’s no end of things to test your patience when you’re behind the wheel!

However one thing you should always avoid getting wound up about is learner drivers – Of course they are going to drive slower and more cautiously than your everyday driver, and yes maybe they may make some mistakes along the way – But just try to remember that they are doing their best, and avoid overtaking or sounding your horn aggressively. Just think back to when you were a learner driver too!

Learning To Drive After Passing Your Test

The main purpose of the driving test is, of course, to test how well you can drive. Sounds straightforward enough, right? Well, what if we told you that the process of learning to drive doesn’t really take place before you take your driving test – But actually much after it.

As odd as this sounds, most drivers will testify that the years after passing their driving test taught them much more about the roads than they ever learned with a driving instructor – And this is true, as you learn to drive independently without needing constant tips from your instructor.

Learning Your Way Around

One of the main benefits of learning to drive is the freedom it gives you – Having your own car allows you to explore new areas, an to visit places that would previously have been difficult, if not downright impossible, for a non-driver to venture to.

Of course, this requires you to learn your way around. It’s no use driving aimlessly looking for somewhere to go, as not only will you likely become bored very quickly, it may result in you losing concentration behind the wheel.
