Good news.

Sadly, I'm one of those impatient motorists who hates being stuck behind a learner driver. I should chill out really.

Are you one of the idiots who pull out in front of my son when he is driving? We have concluded that to some the L plate means leap out in front, don't you realise that a learner driver may be slower to respond and is much more likely to crash into you or swerve into a hedge. Mind you he should ace his emergency stop if he ever manages to book a test!

It would be helpful if there were more off-road centres where learners could get to grips with the basics before venturing out onto real roads with real traffic. I used to hate being stick behind them, too, until I used to help my daughter with driving practice between paid-for lessons. You soon realise the problems the new drivers face.

I often overtake them. And regard that as part of their learning process, because in the real world people will overtake them.

If they are being taught properly then no issue. However, when several driving schools all descend on the same road at the same time to practice manoeuvres that is annoying.

The BBC seems to pick the stories for HYS based on the story's ability to create tension between us all based in which side of the fence of the story we are

The BBC seem to love provoking arguments, whether a story is mundane or not

This thread will soon become full of comments applauding the return of driving lessons/tests to be pitted against those who moan there's too many cars already

Also, you can only book you theory test up to 4 months in advance. So no availability anywhere near me. Make me think it's more than 4 month waiting list. They should extend this period so people have an idea when they can take the tests.

Yes, it is indeed "time to get back to living".

Not because you're "tired" or whatever, but because things are on the right course. The universe, including viruses, don't function by what appears "right" to us but by their own laws.

And it would have been "time to get back to living" a lot sooner if people respected the restrictions and did not act like whiny toddlers.

Absolutely right JJJJ.

We've known for years that the NHS was far from world leading but having the highest death toll in the whole world must, at the very least, give the clapping clappers food for thought.

The staff may be great but the 'free at the point of use' model has most millions of unnecessary deaths over the years and the excess 100k on top due to covid ought to at least be debated.

My daughter has been waiting since last year to do her test again as unfortunately an 'experienced' driver cut her up at a busy roundabout and her examinor failed her for not braking quickly enough, even though she didn't collide with him. She only had 1 minor too. She's now to wait until August because of the backlog. She's two small children who've been couped up for more than a year.

It would be helpful if there were more off-road centres where learners could get to grips with the basics before venturing out onto real roads with real traffic. I used to hate being stick behind them, too, until I used to help my daughter with driving practice between paid-for lessons. You soon realise the problems the new drivers face.

Because it's about limiting indoor interactions to the essential. School, work, driving lesson = more essential than tea with mates.

If every interaction carries the risk of transmission it stands to reason that limiting interactions will limit transmission.

"They will just ride around with L plates on indefinitely."

No you can't. The provisional license expires after 2 years. After which you have to wait a further year before you can apply for a provisional again.

If the coppers spot one person in a car with L plates, they'll be stopped and fined if they don't have a full license.

To use a provisional license and L plate to drive you have to have a fully qualified driver in the car with you.

Bit easy to spot...

Driving age should be raised to 21. Younger people are not mature enough o be in charge of something as dangerous as a car! It will also teach them not to rely on cars for transport.

Will Pearson be putting on more theory tests too? My daughter was due to take hers on 2 March but it was cancelled due to lockdown and the earliest rescheduled test she could get is 25 May. So even if she's ready, she won't be able to book a practical driving test until then as you need your theory test result to book it. It's not just a need for more driving tests.

Just hope that pupils are show how to drive not just pass a test. The appalling standard of driving currently is a testament that, no matter how well intentioned the instructors are, it's not working.
Tests should be retaken at a maximum of every 5 years, if not annually tied into insurance renewals. on the spot fines should be introduced as well.

Utterly insane that motorcycle training/testing were stopped anyway - how much more socially isolated can you be than on a single person vehicle, with a helmet on, outside and at a distance of at least 4 metres?
Also, the CBT is the only kind of 'licence' that expires every two years, so a lot of learner riders will have lost their sole means of transportation in the past year.

Maybe (though no), but you'll need to subside (and improve) public transport for anyone anyone not allowed to drive if you're planning to discriminate. Three-yearly re-tests should come in at 50, max. Older people are often shockingly bad drivers.

40 might not be a a bad age to start retests at...

Biggest problem would be the number of extra tests that would need to be organised.

I very much doubt the truth of this assertion, that non-essential use of a car invalidated the car insurance

I suggested to my car insurer that this was “Cobblers” and they repeated back to me, “Yes Cobblers-we have had no such issues with any of our insureds”

Note that one would have to inform one’s insurers-indeed get permission-before a Learner was allowed to drive under the policy

The CBT is because you are riding alone and have nobody to ask for advice unlike a car learner driver who has an experienced person present at all times. I assume the reason for renewing every two years is to make sure you are still competent as some people will ride for life without taking a full test.

This seems like a good move.

Next can the Government stop all non essential travel from the EU, Russia, China, Asia, South America and Africa.

These nations and regions are struggling badly with covid. The time to act is now to protect our NHS.

Also the EU shambles of failing to deliver enough vaccine in France, Germany, etc means more deaths in the EU which is shameful for the EU bureaucrats!!
