A selection of some of our reviews where we celebrate the success of our customers who have achieved their goal of obtaining a full driving licence with the driving skool.com

We say a huge thank you and be safe!

Lee is a phenomenal driving instructor. Not only does he spend time teaching you how to drive but the lessons are enjoyable and a good laugh. Bubbly, chirpy top bloke who not only taught me how to drive, but helped me grow in self confidence in general as a person. I will miss our lessons but will never forget. Thank you for getting me to where I needed to be to get my licence.

 Michelle 6th March 2019

Passed with Lee in Essex – Couldn’t recommend a better instructor; always on time, knew his stuff and made me feel very comfortable. Would absolutely go with Lee from the Driving Skool if you can, Thank you Lee.

Ant Wood 25th Feb 2019

My instructor Lee was brilliant and very accommodating to any last minute changes I had to make. The team @ the driving skool were also very helpful when it came to negotiating how many more hours I’d need after failing my first test. With some help from Lee I passed on my second attempt with just 4 minors!

Kate 15th Jan 2019

I was lucky enough to discover Mike and the Driving Skool when my wife and I moved to Chislehurst. Mike was incredibly welcoming, personal and honest, helping me to set out a realistic schedule to match my work commitments and upcoming family arrival.

He was upfront about his (very reasonable) costs and the requirements for booking both my theory and practical test, recommending West Wickham as the test centre. I’d planned to take an intensive course but, at Mike’s suggestion, ended up with a combination of weekly lessons followed by a semi-intensive week just before my test. This worked out perfectly and I was happy to pass my test on the first attempt.

During our drives, Mike was great, putting me at ease, offering support (and assertion) when needed, and all whilst being totally aware of our surroundings and in absolute control of the vehicle. He might appear laid back and relaxed but, from experience, he has outstanding reflexes!

Over the course Mike provided a number of training materials to help with the theory of driving, especially for some of the manoeuvres, and the Driving Skool have also put together a number of videos on Youtube.

About the car: I drove in Mike’s Mini diesel, it was very comfortable on the inside with leather seats and A/C for the warmer days. On the road it was smooth to drive and had enough driver assist features to help a new driver without relying on them, though it was still quite a shock taking our basic 0.8l petrol out afterwards.

At no point did I ever feel like a ‘job’, and as my confidence grew it was a pleasure talking to Mike about Chislehurst and the many community events and initiatives he gets involved with.

Overall I had a great learning experience and I’d highly recommend Mike and the Driving Skool.

Good luck and happy driving!

Ross Aubrey-Smith 3rd December 2018

It was important to me that my driving instructor was happy & relaxed. Learning to drive with Julie was fantastic and i will recommend her to others. Julies teaching methods were great. Everything was relaxed and explained well. I passed first time and I am very happy.

Jill 10th November 2018

Thank you Mike. I really enjoyed my driving lessons and passed 1st time at West Wickham

Jack 4th October 2018

I wanted a driving instructor who took the time to understand my personality and someone who didn’t rush me and put me under pressure when learning to drive. Mike was better than I expected. He was beyond patient and I never felt like I  was asking a silly question. His teaching methods were brilliant, easy to follow and understand. I would 100% recommend Mike & the driving skool.com

Tom 15th September 2018

Katie was always on time, very helpful and her teaching methods were easy to follow. Learning to drive was not as hard as i expected with Katie’s teaching style. I would highly recommend her.

Maire 19th August 2018

Chloe 21st January 2018

Just passed my test at Sidcup test centre first time thanks to the help of Julie.I done a 2 week intensive course of around 4 hours a day with Julie. She is a fantastic instructor and has the patience of a saint. I had never driven before and she really explains everything in great detail to really get you understanding the car and the roads. Everyday I felt more and more confident in my abilities. She has some fantastic tips and tricks for all the maneuvers and made the whole experience and incredibly enjoyable one. I would recommend everyone to use The Driving Skool as they have been great from start to finish. Thanks again Julie for all your help.

James Paine 20th November 2017

Katie Mullan 9th December 2016

Ive just passed my test today & there’s no way i could have done it without my instructor Julie White! Ive been doing my lessons with her since march & from my first lesson she put me at ease, shes amazing with anyone with anxiety as she is so calming & doesnt make you feel stupid if you’re nervous or do anything wrong (as she always said to me you cant do anything wrong, you’re learning, its everyone else being stupid! I would highly recommend the driving skool especially if all their instructors are as lovely as Julie! Thank you so much Julie you’re an absolute star!

Jodie Lou Denny 8th December 2016

This service was excellent, Michelle was a good instructor, really insightful. Glad to have selected them

Elliot Dennis 30th November 2016

I would give Michelle a start rating of 10/10 Michelle was very friendly and punctual. She really does want you to pass and has a lot of patience. From day one I really did have a fantastic experience with the driving skool and ended up passing 1st time at Sidcup. Thank you Michelle x

Ali 28th November 2016

Exactly 1 year ago on this day I passed my driving test at first attempt thanks to Mike. He was very professional and always on time. Very precise with his teaching and 2 of my friends also passed first time with him. Strongly recommend Mike and the driving skool. (Sorry Mike, took me a year to write the review but I finally did it xx)

Angie Hansford 27th November 2016

I had an amazing instructor from Chislehurst. Mike taught my sister a few years ago and now just taught me. I passed 1st time today at West Wickham with no driving faults. Mike has to be the best instructor ever and anyone who has him would be very lucky! The service from the driving skool was very good, simple and quick. I would definitely recommend them to anyone learning to drive!!! They were worth the money and time! Am so happy I went with the driving skool! Thank you

Josie 31st October 2016

I have had refresher driving lessons with Michelle and I am pleased to say what a great teacher. She immediately puts you at ease which is what you want when nervous. She has the right approach to driving. I would definitely recommend this driving school, they truly are outstanding.

Julie 30th October 2016

I had a fantastic experience with the driving skool! Michelle was very friendly and supportive, she was always flexible with lessons. She had a great way of putting me at ease and did wonders for my confidence!! Thank you!!

Louie McCartney 24th October 2016

Thank you Julie so much for all your help! You constant encouragement and support is what kept me going and persevering with all. I can’t believe I actually did it! Thank you so much Julie with all your understanding with my anxiety too. I couldn’t have gone to a better instructor. I will be recommending you to everyone.

Lisa Youlton 24th October 2016

I just wanted to say as an older learner I couldn’t be happier with my instructor, Michelle! She is fantastic- patient, knowledgeable & funny! She gives me huge confidence & I can’t wait for each lesson. I’ve put it in this message as I can’t put it on social media as I don’t want anyone to know I’m driving till I pass!

Debs (Surname withheld until she passes!) 15th October 2016

Thank you so much Julie. You have been amazing throughout, with my changing of times due to work. Its been a pleasure learning to drive with you. I can’t thank you enough, I have transferred your money over and a little something for you and your family as a thank you (maybe a take away or something as I know you have been under a lot of stress lately) and you still managed to fit me in around all that!  All the best

John Taylor 28th September 2016

Haha! U had to put up with a lot- so thank u so much Mike! Genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better and more fun driving instructor! Thank u so so much! X x

Charlotte Johnson 28th September 2016

Huge thank you to Mike at thedrivingskool.com! A very supportive instructor, always punctual and happy to teach – after a long break from driving I was able to pass my test in no time at all under his tuition! Support a local business and learn with thedrivingskool.com – I would thoroughly recommend them!

Sam Small 7th August 2016

Great driving school, Julie was a brilliant teacher. Very patient, thoughtful teacher and accommodating to my schedule. Doing an intensive course you spend a lot of time in the car with a teacher and it was a pleasure driving with Julie. Many thanks.

Ollie 1st August 2016

I was so pleased with my entire experience with this driving school, my instructor Julie was amazing and always did everything she could to put me at ease and help me through my entire learning experience. This driving school was incredibly supportive and gave me a lot of resources and guidance. The instructors are also flexible and managed to always do their best to fit in my lessons at a time that suited me. Overall, this is such a friendly and amazing school that I would recommend to anyone. Thank you so much for everything Julie!

Sophie Peters 15th July 2016

the driving school is excellent! Really good instructors I was lucky enough to meet a few of them and they were all reassuring and really good instructors, couldn’t have imagined to go anywhere else other than here. I passed my driving test in 2 months due to a really good Instructor, Mike, he really helped me to be able to get my license and was always reliable and always putting me first.

Dylan Hancock 09th July 2016

I cannot thank Michelle enough! She was extremely reliable and had a great deal of patience. I also really enjoyed our lessons. Would highly recommend Michelle and the driving skool

Julie 4th Feb 2016

Thank you Lee who helped me pass my driving 1st time on Thursday. Lee is really good value and makes learning to drive fun He was always punctual and reliable. If  you want to learn to drive the driving skool and Lee Moughton is the place to go! Thank you!

Mark 12th Feb 2016

Mike’s a 5* guy alright – enthusiastic, professional and really helpful – he and his team of excellent instructors have helped loads of my pupils (intensive courses) and I can only say he runs a brilliant outfit there. This industry (regrettably) contains some disreputable schools, but anyone booking with Mike’s school is on to a winner. They know they will find professionalism, fair play, a great service and friendly instructors who don’t waste time in getting you ready and fully prepared for your driving test. It’s truly a pleasure to know Mike!

Kathleen Fletcher  19th June 2016

Well. It’s almost two years since Charlie passed his test first time with Mike Jack as his instructor. He enjoyed his lessons, Mike was always patient, amusing and obviously good at teaching! Mike accommodated us, starting and finishing lessons at home so Charlie could use his own car and Mike tailored the length of lesson accordingly. Brilliant service all round!

In December 2015 Tom passed his test with only one minor error, praise goes again to the driving skool and Julie his instructor. Tom got off to a bad start with another instructor from another company, who was pompous and undermined Tom’s confidence. Julie set him straight the lessons were fun and he hasn’t looked back since…..(well hopefully he has, the blind spot and mirrors of course). Two months on and an extra 4000 miles on the clock, with a 70 mile trip to Bognor the afternoon after of his test, I think that is confidence for you!

Don’t use anyone else!

Janet Leaver 8th Feb 2016

Michelle was patient, personable and a big confident booster. I passed with her after only a few weeks after a long break from lessons and I would highly recommend her to those in the same position as she is very encouraging and motivating!

Melanie Bevan 21st June 2016

After being desperate to drive since I was child, I started driving lessons with Mike as soon as I hit my 17th birthday, and didn’t look back! As a person who is always in a rush and is quite stubborn at times, it was important to have a calm instructor who explained things well. That’s the experience I had with the driving skool. For anyone who is looking for a reliable driving instructor (who can also make learning fun) I would highly recommend Mike and his team.

Sara Bodbin 17th April 2016

I was such a nervous wreck in the tests previously, but Michelle gave me confidence and I passed after a few lessons with her! I cannot recommend Michelle and the Driving Skool enough!

Jade Leech 27th Feb 2016

Want to learn to drive? Lee is the instructor for you! He really helped me all the way along from passing my theory, to passing my driving test 1st time! Hes a real diamond!

Kevin 20th Feb 2016

I am so happy as I passed my driving test 1st time this morning! Couldn’t have done it without Julie! She was absolutely brilliant and I loved all my driving lessons Thank you so Much! If you are looking for a patient and friendly instructor Julie is the one! xxx

Georgia 5th Jan 2016

I couldn’t have asked for more. I absolutely loved learning to drive with the driving skool. My driving instructor Mike couldn’t have made me feel any more comfortable and confident in my own abilities, ending in a first time pass with 2 minors I would highly recommend anyone and everyone to learn with this driving school Thank you!

Chris 3rd Jan 2016

Thank you so much to Mike who helped me pass my driving test 1st time at West Wickham this week. Mike has a huge amount of patience (which believe me, he needed!) I was VERY nervous in the beginning but Mike made learning to drive fun and exciting. I actually couldn’t wait for my next lesson! Looking forward to doing Pass Plus in the next few weeks. I would highly recommend Mike and the driving skool

Phil T 26th March 2016

I came to the driving skool to achieve my goal of gaining a manual driving licence within one month. I had a brilliant driving instructor called Michelle and from the start we hit the ground running. Within 2 weeks of starting and doing roughly 40 hours I passed 1st time! Thank you so much Michelle and the driving skool.com

Ashley 15th Feb 2016

Mike was brilliant! Friendly, fun, knowledgeable and very patient. I passed my driving test today first attempt and only had one minor fault, all thanks to the good teaching lessons and patience from Mike, whom I highly recommend. Few months ago I was looking for a good driving school to get some driving lessons. The great service started from the 1st phone call when I was enquiring about driving lessons from Alison and received a prompt phone text message on the same day from Mike about my enquiry. Mike helped me to pass my theory test and helped me progress so much faster than i thought i would, he really knew the ins and outs of the test route and i could not have been better prepared when the day came! I am glad I chose the Driving Skool to help me with my lessons. Thank you so much!

Thai Ching Chong 25th August 2015

Being Confident is key and that’s what Mike and the team make you feel. Passed my test first time and I never doubted I would. So comfortable thanks to the personal approach from the instructors. Wish I could learn all over again- I had a ball!!

Alex White 12th Jan 2015

So happy I passed, thank you Mike. Really recommend this driving school.

Jessica Roberts 28th March 2015

Passed first time after 15 or so hours! Great driving instructors! Would recommend to everyone!

Shane Dunphy 10th April 2015

“Thank you so much to Julie who helped get me ready to pass my test, which was no easy challenge! Julie, you are more than just a wonderful instructor but a great friend. You were always thinking of ways to help me learn and get past the things I had difficulty with, I never expected to pass first time but you kept me so calm! I will miss our laughs and silly way of understanding each other even when we’re talking gibberish! Thank goodness they sent me you x”

Sophie  13th August 2015

After being off the road for 6+ years I was extremely nervous – however after having a refresher lesson with Mike I feel completely ready to start driving again. Mike was really friendly and made me feel at ease the minute I got in the car, making sure I was completely comfortable before we set off and I felt relaxed the whole time we were in the car. I’d definitely recommend Mike and the driving skool!

Kat Wootten 15th July 2015

I passed in 2012 but it never occurred to me to write a review for the Driving Skool. I must say that Mike was a fantastic instructor! Always very calm and patient and thoroughly explained everything – whether that was to do with rules of the road, what to expect in the actual test etc. Can’t imagine another company I would have learnt with. Plus learning in a Mini is pretty cool if you get the option. When I get old I’ll be going back to them for refresher lessons! 100% recommend.

Sarah 3rd June 2015

I can’t rate the driving skool.com highly enough! The great service started from the 1st phone call when I was enquiring about driving lessons to when I passed my driving test 1st time. Mike even helped me with my theory which I also passed 1st time. Mike made my lessons fun and interesting and we always had a laugh!! Loved driving the Mini as well! Highly recommend these guys!!

Tommy 22nd May 2015

Mike taught our daughter, Sara to drive and within a very short period she was good enough to take and pass her test. We found Mike very engaging and his relaxed Kiwi manner helped in getting his points through to a typical teeanger who knows it all!! We recommended Mike to our friends and the same successful story was replicated. No qualms about recommending Mike and his team at the Driving Skool.

Sia 22nd May 2015

Mike has the ability to coach and develop his students in a fun learning environment. His relaxed nature instals an element of confidence which resulted in me passing my test first time with only two minors. I found his services cost effective against the market rate and extremely punctual. I would thoroughly recommend Mikes services to anyone who is looking to learn to drive.

Jack White 2nd January 2014

Great instructors and passed first time!

Ellyse Hancock 21st October 2014

Big thank you so much to Scott highly recommend him get instructor thanks again hun ur d best xx

Alice O’Toole 27th Feb 2014

Passed my driving test today at Sidcup on my first attempt. My instructor Julie and I had great fun over the last 3 months and I am now looking forward to doing my pass plus! Great company and highly recommend!

James Watson 13th March 2014

Excellent Driving Instructor . Extremely easy to get along with Naz was very patient, explained everything properly and I never had any problems at all. It was a busy week but worth it as I passed 1st time!

Ahmed 20th Feb 2014

Amy & Lucy Arter passed first time. Top driving school would recommend. Top Bloke Mike !

Les Arter 1st November 2014

Excellent Driving Instructor! Very reliable and easy to get along with. If you are learning to drive and want some patient and understanding Lee is the Driving Instructor for you!

Edward Williams 28 November 2014

Thank you to Mike @ the driving skool who had a huge amount of patience and was very flexiable with when I could do lessons. Couldn’t have done it without you! Cheers.

George Wilson 4th April 2013

Mike initially taught my first daughter to drive. After her experience my second daughter was very keen to have Mike teach her as well. Both found their lessons to be fun and relaxed as well as teaching them what they needed to pass their tests at 17 years old. I have recommended Mike to others and will continue to do so.

Ken 23rd May 2013

I started learning to drive with Mike in August this year. Mike’s friendly and relaxed approach has helped me to gain more confidence in myself and in my driving ability. Mike’s attitude will, I’m sure, help me to pass my test first time. He makes a driving lesson much more enjoyable than those that I have had in the past, and that for me is the key to get me to my end goal.  As an instructor, Mike has the ability to create a relationship that is built on trust, and that will ultimately give you the skills/confidence you need to feel safe on the road. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mike’s services to friends/family

Ann-Marie 16th October 2013

I recently passed my driving test at the first attempt following lessons with Mike at the Driving Skool. I really enjoyed the lessons – Mike was a great teacher and really made the process fun. I would highly recommend the Driving Skool for anyone wanting to learn – in fact my girlfriend is just about to start lessons with them!

Paul Walter 22nd Sept 2012

Great Birthday present. I really learned a lot. Lee made it really relaxed and fun. Can’t wait to turn 17 and get on the road!”

Dan  18th October 2012

Julie has the patience of a saint! I really enjoyed learning with. She was very flexible with her lessons and I couldn’t have passed my driving test 1st time without her. Would highly recommend

Beth 20th May 2012

I recently passed my test after tuition from Mike at the driving skool. Mike was an excellent and accommodating teacher who managed to work around my family commitments. I enjoyed the lessons and would recommend Mike and the driving skool to any new learner. Also, driving the Mini was really fun!

Karolina Witek 14th November 2012

Mike was an excellent driving instructor – patient, thorough and enthusiastic. I looked forward to my lessons since Mike made them fun, and this meant I learned fast. I passed the test with ease, a testament to Mike’s great method.

A mobile phone app could stop young drivers from checking their smartphones while at the wheel.

Romex has developed an app which uses the phone’s GPS system to determine whether a car is travelling at 4mph or more.

If it believes the car is in use, the device is locked – disabling calls, texts, emails and social media.

Romex already provides the service to companies that want to track their fleet, but is now eyeing the consumer market, according to Auto Express.

It will be specifically targeted at younger drivers and could launch later this month.

Sales director Steve Arscott told the website: “It’s called Distraction Prevention. We’re approaching younger drivers because they’re the ones most likely to be glued to their phones.”

The paid-for service will work in conjunction with an app called Guardian, which sends location information on young drivers to their parents.

Guardian also shows whether a driver has been speeding. Mr Arscott said: “We’re looking for insurance partners at the moment.

“One good incentive for a young driver to have it on their phone is they would get a rebate on their insurance policy.”

Many myths and rumors have built up around the practical driving test which simply aren’t true. It’s easy to believe them and this can affect your confidence when it comes to taking your test.

So here, we dispel the myths and puts the facts right about what REALLY happens when you come to take your test.

11108677_10152957187493262_7181734660577645942_n

“If you stall during your test, you will fail.”

Not entirely true! By the time you’re ready to take the practical driving test, shaky clutch control should be a distant memory but the test seems to do funny things to candidates! Stalling repeatedly in traffic or stalling when entering major junction, affecting other road users, will fail the test. If you stall, don’t panic. Take a deep breath and start over again. Some candidates have even passed tests after stalling twice! Nerves can ruin a test for even the best of drivers so it’s important to not dwell on mistakes as some aren’t as bad as you may think!

“If you get take a wrong turn, the examiner will fail you.”

The driving test is designed to allow the Examiner to assess your driving ability during the course of a 30-35 minute route, taking in various road and traffic conditions. If you are asked to turn right at a junction but turn left in error, you will not incur a driving fault as long as you correctly turn left.  Even on the recently added ‘independent driving’ element of the test, you are not penalised for getting lost during the drive, so If you are not sure where you should be going, ask for help and you will get it! What the Examiner doesn’t want you to do is drive erratically or dangerously because of poor planning and anticipation e.g. not seeing your intended junction until too late, turning across traffic when not safe to do so and causing the flow of traffic to slow unnecessarily. Whatever you do on the test, do it safely and you’ll have a good chance of being successful.

“Driving Examiners are trying to fail candidates.”

The Examiner has less to do if you pass!  When you pass your test, the Examiner issues your test certificate and heads back to his office for quick cuppa before the next test. However, if you have failed your test they return to their office to write a report, detailing the reasons for the fail. Another urban legend I sometimes hear from students is that Examiners have to fail a certain amount of tests each month. While it is true that Examiners are expected to have pass rates that fall within 10% of the local average, there is nothing to suggest that the test results are compromised because of this; in fact in my experience the only person who really affects final decision is the candidate taking the test!

“My mum/dad say they only took a few lessons and passed a few weeks after turning 17.”

This statement may be true, but at a rough estimate most candidate’s parents will have taken their test 20 to 30 years ago in very different times. The volume of traffic on the roads has greatly increased since then, as have the number of complex junctions and road systems in busy urban areas. The DVSA have changed the test on a regular basis over past 30 years to reflect the more challenging situations that drivers face on modern roads, including the recently introduced independent driving element of the test and a greater skill level in hazard awareness and anticipation, needed to deal with today’s busy roads. The DVSA suggest that an average of 45 hours of tuition along with around 20 hours of private practice is required in order to reach the test standard.

“You should check your mirrors every 7 seconds.”

While checking your mirrors every 7 seconds may suit some traffic conditions, it is more important to check your mirrors when appropriate.  If you’re worrying about checking every 7 seconds, you won’t be focused on what’s happening on the road. The test assesses the candidate’s use of mirrors when signalling, before changing speed and before changing direction, all of which demonstrate good awareness and planning. The examiners can easily see when you are looking in your mirrors so you don’t have to make it too obvious. It only needs to be a glance and should not distract you from the road ahead!

£100 fine and 3 licence points for driving with snow on car roof

 

the-highway-code-rule-229

Driving with snow on your car roof could land you with a £100 fine and three points on your licence.

And if you find it hard to believe, check rule 229 of the Highway Code

Rule 229 states before you set off

 You MUST be able to see, so clear all snow and ice from all your windows

 You MUST ensure that lights are clean and number plates are clearly visible and legible

 Make sure the mirrors are clear and the windows are demisted thoroughly

 Remove all snow that might fall off into the path of other road users

Check your planned route is clear of delays and that no further snowfalls or severe weather are predicted

Police say motorists could be prosecuted for careless or inconsiderate driving if they are involved in an accident and it is deemed that snow on the roof was a factor.

Motorists could face a £100 fine and three points on their license if snow on the roof of their car contributes to an accident. This could apply if snow falls forward onto a driver’s windscreen, obscuring the view, or backwards causing a hazard for motorists traveling behind them.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: ‘Many people are not aware of the hazard that snow on their cars can cause. Falling snow can be dangerous for all road users.’

Rule 229 of the Highway Code states, in a section entitled ‘driving in adverse weather conditions’, that snow should be removed from your car.

The full rule says: ‘Before you set off you MUST be able to see, so clear all snow and ice from all your windows. You MUST ensure that lights are clean and number plates are clearly visible and legible, make sure the mirrors are clear and the windows are demisted thoroughly.

‘Remove all snow that might fall off into the path of other road users. Check your planned route is clear of delays and that no further snowfalls or severe weather are predicted.’

Department for Transport proposals would allow driving instructors to supervise novice drivers on motorways

M5_motorway,_Cullompton

 

Learner drivers could be allowed on motorways for the first time, under government proposals aimed at increasing road safety.

The Department for Transport is considering the move as a way to make sure learners are properly prepared for everyday driving before they pass their tests. Under the plans, they would be allowed to gain experience on motorways under the supervision of an approved driving instructor.

At the moment, learner drivers are not allowed to go on motorways but can do so without having had any practical experience after passing their test.

The possibility of learners on motorways will be explored under a £2m project examining driver education. It will look at whether the current regime gives the best training for learner and novice drivers. Compulsory basic training for learner motorcyclists will also be reviewed.

As part of a package of reforms known as the road safety plan, transport ministers are also planning a £50m grant for better cycling training in schools, and looking at forcing lorries to keep their sideguards to better protect cyclists.

There will also be increased punishments for drivers who use hand-held mobile devices while driving, with an increase from three penalty points to four and the fine rising from £100 to £150. In 2014, mobile phone usage was a contributing factor in 21 fatal road accidents and 84 serious accidents. The penalty for using a mobile while driving larger vehicles such as HGVs will go up from three to six points.

Patrick McLoughlin, the transport secretary, said he was putting forward “common sense proposals that balance tougher penalties for dangerous drivers with practical steps to help youngsters and other more vulnerable groups stay safe on our roads”.

The move to let learner drivers have supervised practice on motorways was welcomed by Steve Gooding, director of the RAC Foundation. “One in five young drivers has an accident within six months of passing their test so putting the learning process under the spotlight has to be a good thing,” he said.

“Mile for mile, motorways are our safest roads but can be intimidating places for novice drivers. Exploring ways of letting learners have controlled access to them is welcome. The important thing is the official seal of approval provided by the approved driving instructor who will accompany them down the slip road. This is definitely not the time to have mum or dad in the passenger seat.”

The government is currently considering a number of reforms to driving tests in order to improve the UK’s road safety record. It is already thinking about giving those who pass their driving test first time a refund of part of the cost. The plan is intended to raise the low first-time pass rate, which stands at just 21%.

At one point, the government was also considering banning newly qualified drivers from carrying non-family members under proposals to cut the number of road accidents involving teenagers.

Benefits of Buying a Car Camera

With more and more UK motorists begining to reap the benifits of installing an in-car camera, sales of these small, purpose built video devices, are increasing daily. Fitting your car camera is easy, they simply attach to your vehicles windscreen via a suction cup or adhesive mount, this enables you to record video footage of the road ahead and gives you your very own ‘eyewitness’. If you’re unfortunate enough to be involved in any kind of collision, they offer complete peace of mind that you’ll have detailed footage of the whole incident. This could help prove your innocence and offers irrefutable video evidence when it comes to settling an insurance claim. The follwing list offers a few more reasons why installing a car camera could be the best thing you ever do…

Protection against Crash for Cash and Insurance fraud

Crash for cash, is without doubt, one of the largest vehicle based crimes an innocent motorist may have to deal with, and the bad news is it’s still on the increase. According to the Insurance Fraud Bureau, organised Crash for Cash scams are costing the UK insurance companies around £392 million every single year, and with 1 in 7 personal injury claims being linked to one, it is netting huge amounts of money for the criminals involved in it. Crash for Cash is a huge problem right now and vehicle insurance fraud is not a victimless crime; it is the honest policy holder that will ultimately pick up the bill with an extra £40-£50 being added to their insurance premiums every single year. Gangs of highly organised criminals will usually stage or induce an ‘accident’ by causing an innocent motorist to crash into the rear of the fraudster’s car. The simplest scenario is where the gang members car may pull directly in front of yours and then by suddenly hitting the brakes they leave  you little or no chance to avoid a rear-end collision. This now gives the criminals the ideal opportunity to make as much money as possible by submitting exaggerated insurance claims for vehicle damage, ‘loss of earnings’ and personal injury, the drivers not only claim this for themselves but sometimes for passengers who weren’t even travelling in the car! By simply installing a car camera in every vehicle that you drive, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that you will be protecting yourself with HD video evidence that will fully show the circumstances leading up to, and including the collision itself. This will give the insurance company any proof it needs if they suspect the claim to be a fraudulent one.

Protect your insurance premiums

Often, when making a claim to your insurance company the claimant will always have to pay an increased cost on their next renewal. This is because most of the time, after an accident each party denies responsibility for it; the result is the insurance companies have to assume equal responsibility for both parties. On some occasions the outcome is even worse and the innocent party is wholly blamed for the collision. Installing a car camera will help ensure that the actions and driving behaviour of those who caused the incident are 100% indisputable. The insurers will be able to get a complete understanding of the circumstances leading up to an accident and this will mean that only the guilty parties’ insurance company will have to pay damages. Thus, in-car video evidence goes a long way to protecting your premiums and your no-claims bonus.

Cheaper car insurance

As car cameras or dash cams become increasingly popular on UK roads, some insurance companies are recognising the benefits of having them fitted and discounts are already being offered for drivers who install and use their cameras regularly. Having high-quality video evidence also means that insurers can spend less time and money investigating suspicious or fraudulent claims and therefore can pass this saving on to the motorist. In a nutshell the car camera will actually pay for itself before there has even been an accident! Still can’t decide whether or not to purchase an in-car camera? For most of us, just the fact it could save us a small fortune on our insurance premiums is enough to make it a “no-brainer”.

Deter, record or report dangerous and unsociable drivers

With the car camera market expanding by the day, drivers will eventually start to become more aware that there are quite a number of vehicles on UK roads that already have an on board video camera mounted inside them. This, we are sure, will eventually start to make every motorist drive with a lot more courtesy and patience for others. Unfortunately, at this moment in time, we are still a long way away from this. With speeding motorists wanting to under-take or push in front of us, angry tailgaters who insist on driving a few inches away from our rear bumper or selfish drivers who chat away on their mobile phones, these are all examples of incidents that are happening on a daily basis and are making our roads as dangerous as ever. So how can we combat this? Simple, by using an in-car camera system you’ll have the ability to capture any dangerous or reckless driving on video. This can then be reported to the local authorities and in many cases these drivers will be prosecuted solely on car camera evidence.

Protect against road rage incidents

Road rage attacks are becoming ever more common in the UK. In most cases this involves nothing more than some choice words or possibly some offensive hand gestures.  That said, there are a number of drivers who are reportedly finding themselves as a target of actual physical violence. If you have a car camera fitted, try to make sure you always position yourself in front of it whilst you’re exchanging details; this ensures that any offensive behaviour or threats will be caught on camera. Another way to diffuse a potentially violent situation is to inform the other driver that the event is being monitored and recorded, this can be a useful tool, helping to diffuse a volatile situation. Many attackers will be far more likely to back down once they know their actions being filmed by your ‘eyewitness’.

Protection in car parks 

G-shock technology sensors are tiny motion sensors that are built in to most modern day car cameras. This enables the camera to instantly start recording the moment it detects either, movement around the car, or a sudden bump or jolt to the vehicle itself. This will be an enormous benefit to you if you happen to return to your parked car to find it scratched or damaged in some way. The saved file from your in-car camera can be viewed once you’re back at home, or with some car cameras, the footage can be watched there and then on your smartphone using a Wi-Fi connection. It gives you extra peace of mind that you may have caught the culprits face on camera or in the case of the damage being caused by another vehicle; you’ll not only have video images of the incident taking place but also the vehicles registration plate. This gives you the advantage of bringing any guilty party to justice and once again saves you from having to make a claim on your own insurance.

Record commercial and fleet driver’s activity

With the advances in car camera technology it is now possible to start protecting your entire workforce whilst they’re out on the road. Fleet owners now also have the ability to monitor every one of their vehicles and driver’s activity. Using Google maps they can check whether a driver has adhered to the correct pre-planned route, not broken the speed limit and more importantly not been driving without due care and attention. At the same time many drivers now enjoy the peace of mind that having a camera installed brings. Commercial drivers are often the target of crash for cash scams, this is because the gangs know that a commercial vehicle will undoubtedly have insurance, when a larger van or lorry is blamed for being at fault in an accident, irrefutable video evidence can immediately prove the drivers innocence, therefore not only protecting the fleet owner’s insurance costs but also helping to protect the employees driving licence and ultimately, their job.

Taxi and Private hire protection

If you drive a black cab for a living or you’re always on the road as a private hire driver the chances are, at some point, you’ve ended up either having a near miss with another vehicle or maybe found yourself in a vulnerable situation with one of your passengers. With Taxi and private hire insurance premiums being at an all-time high, there’s never been a better time to install your very own ‘eyewitness’ protection. These days you’ll find CCTV everywhere you go so why should your cab or minibus be any different? There are numerous problems that can arise whilst driving, these include damage to the outside of your cab from other road users, verbal and sometimes physical abuse and of course those customers who have decided not to pay their fair at all! Having the knowledge that you have a reliable camera system in place will go a long way to improving safety for both the driver and passengers alike.

Young and novice driver protection

The cost of insurance premiums for young or novice drivers has increased dramatically over the past few years; some of these premiums can range anywhere from £3,000 to £7,000 a year! This is largely because younger and less experienced drivers are more likely to be involved in an incident or accident in their first few years on the road. To combat some of these issues insurance companies will only offer them a policy if they then agree to have a ‘black box’ fitted in their car. This then tells the insurer their locality, what time of day or night it was and more importantly what speed they were travelling. Now imagine installing a car camera into their vehicle to back this up, it would not only give their insurance company a visual image of how they were driving, but could potentially prove their innocence should they ever be involved in a collision with another motorist. Worth thinking about, isn’t it?

Protect your vehicle against misuse and abuse

When you have to leave your vehicle with a stranger, it can sometimes be a real worry. Without an in-car camera installed you have no idea how others are treating your property. How many times have you left your vehicle at a garage for repair, service or M.O.T or maybe had to leave it with a valet parking company at an airport? Once it’s out of your sight, what really goes on? Having a car camera installed enables you to see (and sometimes hear) exactly what happens once you’ve dropped it off and handed over your keys. Viewing the camera footage back will enable you to know exactly where your vehicle was and how it was treated. If you have a car camera with built-in GPS you’ll also be able to see the route it was driven, how fast it was travelling and where abouts it was left parked up.
