Re: DVSA Tests and Lessons to Resume

I am not an ADI and as such see the observing I do as falling in the “private practice” definition and therefore should not be undertaking observing just yet until the social distancing rules allow it. But it's not private practice. You are delivering a course for which someone has paid money. Yes,...

Re: Reg Local and speed...

I didn't realise road safety and legality are the same. I imagine if, as you assert, he examines for the IAM on a part-time basis, that he would assess a candidate based on their criteria. Perhaps he has a life outside the IAM and feels free to express his views on his own time, which is refreshing...

Re: Post Covid Travel

Speaking personally, and I am quite sure that it is the same for many of my colleagues, working remotely is perfectly possible, and is absolutely fine... for a while. It is, however, horribly inefficient and, IMO, not sustainable for too much longer. And that's before we get anywhere near the "...

Re: Post Covid Travel

The relative risk of surface versus airborne transmission doesn't seem clear but I've been thinking for a while that the former isn't particularly significant else there'd be a much higher incidence in the general population -- we all touch the provisions we buy ... How do you know there isn't a mu...

Re: Empty roads

Similarly: Sleights of Mind A fascinating insight to how your brain processes visual information. Looks interesting. Could you give a couple of examples from it that can be applied to driving?
