Re: Discuss 'benefits'

Perhaps, instead of asking about the real or perceived benefits of advanced techniques, and whether they should be rolled into the standard test, you might be explicit in stating your views on that question And if any of the above doesn't answer sufficiently, I'm happy to clarify specific points, i...

Re: Discuss 'benefits'

I think it's rather more interesting to consider the consequences of making the driving test more difficult Well, more 'fail' certificates would be one likely outcome. However, if another outcome is safer new drivers, might that be an acceptable trade-off? Perhaps another avenue that I'd hope is be...

Re: Discuss 'benefits'

Are new drivers really the problem, or is it more 'experienced' drivers who have become lazy and forgotten the basics more of an issue? In very simple terms, yes, new (& newer) drivers are a bigger problem. https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEhpangB1JG-idSvNVnQ3Ia_bZkNLbc...

Re: Discuss 'benefits'

And this is getting away from what, if any, benefits formal to test advanced training gives? While that might be true, it started out by following one of your questions ;-) Indeed it was. Which is why I gave a fairly lengthy answer. However, this post of yours deserves a lengthy response too. But t...

Re: Discuss 'benefits'

Presumably you mean car technology? I was thinking of, for example, lane assist, parallel parking assistance, 'auto-pilot', and so on. Also, 'intelligent' speed assist will take some of the 'burden' away from the driver. I was struck by a comment I read from a driving enthusiast who has a Tesla say...

Re: Discuss 'benefits'

all of those could be incorporated into L training. I'm not convinced this is realistic; unless we as a society are willing to demand a relatively high standard from learners, and are willing to deal with the inevitable increase in uninsured drivers caused by a higher standard for the test, then I ...

Discuss 'benefits'

Removed from the new members thread, not the right place for it. what we know to be the benefits of "advanced driving", which I prefer to think of as driving properly. What we know [is fact] about benefits, or what we think is fact about benefits. More specifically, which element(s) that m...

Re: Theft potential of possible new car?

Nearest we've got to concerns is to buy one of the Faraday pouches and store the fob away from the door.

Re: Theft potential of possible new car?

the judicial system does not come down hard enough on car thieves. I suspect that's because of "green" nonsense and sentencing guidelines. Guidelines, very likely, see: https://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk/offences/magistrates-court/item/theft-general/ Green nonsense, though, how would th...
