1 in 3 Drivers Not Ready to Drive

A recent survey has shown that a third of young drivers do not consider themselves ready to drive alone… despite recently passing their test.

29% of 18-30 year olds do not believe that their lessons or even their exam have equipped them with the tools necessary to begin driving without supervision.

Almost a quarter of the same group of 2,000 young drivers surveyed believe that if they had spent more time learning to drive, a previous accident would have been much more easily avoided.

Of this number, 21% still chose to avoid motorways, and almost 15% described themselves as “unprepared” to be behind the wheel in the first place.

The survey revealed other shocking statistics such as a third being too unconfident to drive in wet weather, over a fifth uncomfortable driving with others in the car, and even 8% being unwilling to perform a right-turn… despite this being a compulsory part of the driving test.

Like all things, driving requires some confidence. Remember, if you have passed your test, you are clearly capable of driving safely. Just remember to make sure you always do.

Safe driving from Britannia!
