Re: DVSA Tests and Lessons to Resume

In general terms, government have relaxed constraints earlier where there is a benefit to the economy. In this case, there is a stronger argument for allowing two people in a car where it allows a driving instructor to resume earning a living than for our activities. Personally, I would not choose t...

Re: Always be able to stop in the distance....

Anyone here had close convoy training? Can you explain how you avoid events like this when you deliberately avoid any reaction time between vehicles? How much trouble will there be for the driver (formal investigation? Disciplinary proceedings? )?

Re: Post Covid Travel

My daughter who is in a sales related field would normally expect an hour's travel for a 1 hour appointment. She now has her appointments by video call with no travel. However, she is going stir crazy from not getting out and about in spite of spending this time with us and her partner and brother a...

Re: Rear Fog Light Etiquette...

Interesting that according to that graph people licenced later have more accidents right into middle age. I am surprised that after 10 years of driving someone licenced at 21 has a higher accident rate than someone licenced at 18 - providing they survive the particularly high accident rate in their ...

Built-in car breathalysers and speed limiters will save countless lives

So says the IAM, welcoming implementation of the requirement for all new cars to have them from 2022. Countless - could mean anything, but probably intended to mean a lot, in which case I doubt it.

Re: 'Highest'?

See the bit where I listed 'congested' & '50 limits' & 'double white lines'. Good luck if you can 'make progress' under those circumstances! I'd like to know how :) The driving enthusiasts among us go out of our way to drive on the sort of roads which offer the opportunity to exercise skill...

Re: 'Highest'?

I would hope that, if you ask all these three organisations, their universal response is something along the lines of: "Our highest standards are common to all three courses," as in, a driver of a certain ability could expect to be examined by any of the three providers, and the grade the...

Re: 'Highest'?

There can be a whole debate about what is good driving. However, in the comparison between IAM and Rospa, the same style and aspects of driving are admired and assessed- and there is no doubt that IAM Masters Distinction is the highest level assessed by either of those organisations. Happily I don't...
