There are a number of advantages to opting for an intensive driving course. All Pass Driving suggests that these courses allow people to get on the road quickly if a license for driving is needed more urgently.  Additionally, there is less gaps in between lessons meaning that you are unlikely to forgot basic checks or manoeuvres as you will be doing them throughout the day which will help you remember them through muscle memory. Furthermore, another great advantage of a 1 week driving course is it is extremely cost effective meaning you get good value for money.

Car maintenance

Nowadays with so much technology in cars predictably more things can and will fail in time. However, in this day and age of motoring a large number of new motorists aren’t being taught the bare bones of driving. Doing routine checks such as tyre tread, oil level check, washer liquid check and brake light and headlight checks are second nature to many. Despite this driving schools in some cases are neglecting these important facts and leaving it to the new drivers to figure out. In order to quickly check your tyre tread one tip is to place a 20p coin within the grooves of your tyre. If the tyre is within the legal tread limit the outer part of the 20p the outer band should be obscure. Another tip is to check your tyres pressure level at least once every two weeks. Tyre pressure can affect fuel economy, handling and performance and can also indicate leaks or punctures. Ensure your tyres are filled to the manufacturer’s specification.

Defensive driving

Defensive driving is probably one of the most common buzzwords in driving and within your first year you come to know exactly why that is. Drivers need to be quick to react to hazards as well as be wary of other road users. Our advice would be to be wary of other road users and familiarise yourself with the size and position of your car. One of the most common issues is drivers fail to remember where their wheels are in relation to their driving position.  If possible, leave at least 1 car length between you and the vehicle in front so you can respond to their driving if needed.

Buying a car

When going to buy a car one of the most important factors other than price is of course the condition of the car and its overall safety. However ironically enough this often is overlooked by many new drivers as the car is presented shiny and new looking on a forecourt. Generally, more experienced drivers tend to know how a car feels better and can spot warning signs such as heavy brakes, light steering and poor suspension pretty quickly. However younger drivers looking for their first or second cars may not be as savvy when it comes to purchasing a car. Generally speaking it is best to bring a friend who has good experience of motoring or even purchase a vehicle check from a mechanic to get the car checked over before you buy for peace of mind.
