The challenge is whether 'that' learning can be incorporated into 'L' training and testing (because if it isn't tested then it's unlikely to be trained)?
So why does insurance typically increase when someone goes from L plates to having passed?
I imagine they get worse before they get better. Suddenly released into the wild, wayhay! Off they go, faster and faster until they've had a few "oh sheeeeeeeeeeeet!" moments, then they calm down a bit, get better at predicting stuff etc.
And, of course, they haven't got anybody with them in the car any more, most of the time.
