I have finally decided to take the plunge and add a blog to my site. I always wanted an easy way to share information with visitors and those wanting to learn to drive, there will be news, especially the proposed changes to the driving test... What? You didn't know about any changes! Have you been living under a rock or something? Visiting relatives on another planet?
Well my friend, there are changes coming. Later this year the DVSA will put forward proposed changes to the driving test, these will include dropping the "turn in the road" & "left reverse" from the test. "Bay parking" will come in two forms reversing in as it is now and also driving in and the reversing out but between parked cars. They may do this at supermarket that has agreed to allow it ( other supermarkets are available). Independent driving will come in two forms, as it is currently (see learning zone page) but also an additional 10 minutes with a sat-nav, I don't care if you hate them, get over it. Also to add to the three routine stops will may undertake there will be a forth whereby you pull up on the right, then reverse back for a short distance, one of the two "show me, tell me" questions will be asked while you drive and it maybe a "show" question so you have to able to do it while driving and then drive away again, returning to the left of oncoming vehicles.
We don't know a specific date for the changes as of yet, April has been mentioned but this more likely to be October at the moment. Add to that letting learners back on the motorway..... don't tell me you don't know about that either?
