Passed your driving test recently?  Has the New Driver Act been explained to you?

Your licence will be cancelled (revoked) if you get 6 or more points within 2 years of passing your test.

How easy is that?  Well click here for an idea of how many penalty points you get depending on the offence. 

Some examples.  You'll get 6 points for not having insurance!  Speeding 3 to 6 points.  Using your phone gets you 6 points.  Its not just points and losing your licence.  You also get fined.  Your insurance premiums will rise too.

The hardest and easiest places to pass your driving test.

Just read this on the BBC News website.

Relax - The pass rate for Handsworth is 45% and Middlewood 44%.  Its 46% nationally.

Wow - Its easier to pass in Handsworth.  As an experienced driver I would say Middlewood had easier roads.

My Standards Check

19 September 2019

My last standards check was in September 2019.  I got an A... Again.

Big Thanks to Tori who was my learner driver for the test.  And she passed first time in November 2019.  The standards check is a great reminder to instructors how our customers feel on test day.  For Instructors, we get 3 attempts to pass and if we dont, we have to re-train and take all our tests again.  A grade A is not a measure of how good an instructor is, it is how well they performed on the day.  Find out more about the test here.
