Finally being able to drive your own car can be an exciting prospect for many – For this reason, many newly qualified drivers are those who have taken their lessons and passed their test as soon as they possibly could, meaning that they are around the age of 17 or 18 in many cases.
Whilst this may be give great sense of freedom for younger drivers, it is essential to be aware of the dangers regarding teenage drivers. A recent study has identified that the main problems with teenage drivers are drivers drinking alcohol when behind the wheel, texting on their phones whilst driving, failing to wear seat belts, driving at irresponsibly high speeds, and riding with teenage passengers.
If you are a teenage driver, or if you even know one, make sure not to engage in this risky behaviour, or you could end up losing a lot more than your license.
Safe driving from Britannia!
