Re: Driving licences for UK citizens after March 2019

I can't speak for France but am well aware that the Spanish government is prepared to look more kindly on UK refugees ;) I'm not sure that applies to all of Spain but we'll be in the Basque Country in the summer, so I'm hopeful. I'm waiting for someone to tell us that the old paper licence won't be...

Re: Why - what does it matter?

No. The same inference would probably apply if the car was BMW, Audi, Lotus, Aston Martin, Jaguar or the like. But when you read quotes like "very experienced cyclist", the article has tried the driver and found him guilty. Joe Public will criticise a Porsche doing 50 in a national, when h...

Re: Why - what does it matter?

In the first instance, they stated it was a Porsche with the inference that the car was going [too] fast

Re: New Audi A6 - not able to switch off Stop/Start function

My RenaultSport Clio 200 has an off button ... it is a bl**dy annoying feature that is useless at RABs, hill start junctions, poor visibility junctions and in heavy stop/start commuter traffic... Your stop start activates with the car in gear and the clutch down? That's a serious flaw! I think thes...

Re: Hazard perception test now features more weather conditions

I did the HPT 15 years ago when I was trying to become an ADI and said then that I didn't think it was fit for purpose. As Mike says, experienced drivers click too early.
