Re: First accident...

Phew - well done for attending court and undergoing questioning. I've never been to court but I'm sure it's a very concerning and worrying time. It's good you are pleased with the process as well.

So what can you learn from the collision itself and when are you going to do your advanced test?

Re: A few more videos

You're never too old to change...you could practice 1-5 with 3 being just left of the centreline, 4 being just right and 5 being well over to the right. Yes I agree £300 is a lot - I took the Masters when it first came out and last year had by first renewal at the old price. It was enjoyable but whe...

Re: A few more videos

Very nice video Mike and great riding. I though your "position 2 and half" was interesting.

Have you taken the advanced car test as well...Obs test...Masters?

Re: A Very Good Read

...but Tesla would argue you are safer (on average) when in autonomous mode than driving it yourself. I don't believe anyone is suggesting there will be no collisions in autonomous mode in the future, just less. I don't believe a truly autonomous car (as in no input from a driver regardless of route...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

Also from the BBC website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47715415 "...The system can be overridden temporarily. If a car is overtaking a lorry on a motorway and enters a lower speed-limit area, the driver can push down hard on the accelerator to complete the manoeuvre. A full on/off switc...

And just to add insult to injury, the IAM have come out in full support of this on Facebook... https://www.iamroadsmart.com/media-and-policy/newsroom/news-details/2019/03/27/not-a-big-brother-solution-iam-roadsmart-calls-new-laws-on-car-and-lorry-safety-systems-a-potential-licence-and-life-saver No...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

My understanding was this ISA is overridable: From https://etsc.eu/etsc-welcomes-provisional-deal-on-new-vehicle-safety-standards/ ... The new rules include requirements for new technologies, such as Automated Emergency Braking which can detect pedestrians and cyclists, as well as overridable Intell...

Re: Hello all

...So I would venture to suggest that if there's a real disconnect it's between what IAM appears to offer and what their Examiners expect to see Associates demonstrate on their test. Remember you've only experienced 1 group and 1 main Observer...I believe my own group (Bristol Advanced Motorists) h...

Re: Hello all

It's a shame you feel like you do. 'Advanced Driving' is a huge subject and you've dabbled and it doesn't seem to have re-inspired you. Anyone passing should feel proud as the standard is quite high...and some just don't want to leave it there - like the people here. It's not for everyone (sad thoug...
