Guidance for New Drivers

Once you have passed your driving test you can drive alone, but you must be careful, you are on probation for two years. If you get 6 penalty points, which means going past a speed camera too fast twice, your licence will be revoked and you become a learner again. This means applying for another provisional license and passing the theory test again before taking another driving test.

Another and more important reason for being careful is your lack of driving experience. To gain experience first drive on roads you are familiar with, than venture further afield, if possible take an experienced driver with you.

Map reading is another skill you will find useful as a driver that means map reading to work out how to get from where you are, to where you want to be. Sat Navs are very good but sometimes they can take you a long way round. You should practice following their direction on local roads before venturing into unfamiliar areas.
