Drivers are risking fines, disqualification or jail because they do not know the rules on supervising learners, according to the AA.
The law states that somebody supervising a learner driver is effectively in control of the car. It is vital that learner drivers gain suitable supervised experience behind the wheel, to ensure their safety and the safety of other road users. All-round good practice should involve better co-ordination with approved driving instructors, as well-planned private practice can be invaluable.
It gives the novice more experience in all kinds of conditions, thereby reducing the risk of them being involved in a crash once they have passed their test
Safe driving, from Britannia!
