Driving a vehicle requires an individual to not only be able to physically control the vehicle but to understand the dynamics and make informed decisions based on road and traffic conditions.
In order to drive in a safe way we must not only be able to navigate our way through traffic but to apply the rules of the road in order for all road users to be safe.
Avoiding distractions, being in a position to assess others and to handle your own car takes skill and most importantly practise.
Driving also requires a person to follow the laws of the road; by making sure the vehicle is safe, has a valid MOT, valid tax disc, valid insurance and is registered with the DVLA.
A driver must also take responsibility for holding a valid driving licence, be fit and healthy and wear glasses if needed.
Even if a driver is capable of all of the above, drivers must ensure they do not drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speed, park inappropriately, along with many other rules of the road that are in place.
