Don’t Eat And Drive

Motorists who eat-and-drive risk more than just having egg on their faces.

As many as 20 per cent of motorists eat meals in their cars on journeys to and from work, leaving them liable to possible prosecution, a survey by The Co-Operative Motor Group found.

While it is not unlawful to eat in a car, motorists can be charged with careless driving or not being in proper control of their vehicle.

The poll of 2,000 motorists showed that around half eat on a long journey, more than 11 per cent have tucked into food on their way back from supermarkets and just under ten per cent have eaten on the school run.

Drivers in the Midlands were most likely to be eating while commuting, while drivers in the East Midlands were most likely to consume on the school run.

Mobile Phones Can Be Truly Life Changing

Insurance companies are now raising premiums for motorists that are convicted of using mobile phones while driving by 30 %.

In the past the offence has been treated the same as speeding but all is to change and is now being classed the same as careless driving.

Why Be Careful When Driving Through Deep Flood Water

When Driving with all this flooded water around be careful? Make sure you travel slow through it do not make the mistake of “look at me” thinking its fun especially if you think “I have got a diesel and no ignition electrics to get wet and stop the engine” Mistake far words looms near?
Many modern cars some worse than others have a very low air intake and what does an engine do “It Sucks” and it will if you get the air intake at water level, and thats most likely good by to your engine because it will suck the water up like a straw and the higher the engine rpm the quicker the water will be sucked up. This will cause a hydraulic lock inside the engine because a liquid will not compress like air instead it will bend the piston connecting rods etc (expensive).
Its also best to wait until there are no other cars coming through from the other direction as well because of the bow wave cause from there vehicle just like a boat does, this raises the water level even higher for a few seconds while you pass and thats all it needs?

Why choose Learn2Drive over our cheaper competitors !!!

Structured driving lessons should always begin with a RECAP of what you learnt on the last lesson, otherwise your driving instructor will only be guessing as to what you understood and what you can actually remember. Next should be the OBJECTIVE of the current lesson. You should always have a firm objective as to what you are trying to achieve during the lesson (Aimless “driving around” in not an objective) If you are struggling with a particular topic, your driving instructor should be asking you questions to find out exactly what you know about the given subject and assisting with any gaps in your knowledge and understanding. Once your theory knowledge of the subject has been established, then it is time to practice on the move until competence has been achieved. Your driving instructor should be assisting you during this phase, either my telling you exactly how to perform the topic or by prompting you with good targeted questions to ascertain what you will do before you make further mistakes. Regular stops should be made to assess your progress and to help with any problems. During this time the transfer of responsibility should be passing from your driving instructor over to you by gradually decreasing the relevant questions and encouraging independence .

This is not rocket science and the transfer of responsibility should be taking place during the lesson. How long this will take , will depend on the skill of your driving instructor and your own learning capabilities.

At the end of the lesson a SUMMARY is vital to assess your understanding and performance. Your performance can then be measured against the lesson objective to see what was actually achieved. As learning is an ongoing process further practice may be necessary on subsequent lessons, but you should ALWAYS know whether you met your objective and if not WHY NOT.
This process of a structured driving lesson should apply to all parts of the learning to drive syllabus.
If this is not happening on your driving lessons and you find yourself simply “driving around” with no idea of what you are trying to achieve, you are quite simply wasting your hard earned money and your progress will be much slower and extremely frustrating.
Unfortunately many driving instructors have not kept up with modern teaching methods and do not deliver structured driving lessons and because of this your progress will most likely be extended and so will the cost of gaining your full licence.
Using these methods with a 1.5 hour lesson we find the the time it takes the average student to get test ready is reduced by about 30%
This is where we are “Refreshingly Different” to the vast majority of our competitors and those transferring from other driving schools always comment on the highly effective methods that we use.
