Ensuring your safety!

We want to ensure that you are safe on the road and that you are taught to the best of your abilities. The reason why we want to make sure you are as safe as possible is to prevent yourself from getting into a situation that could possibly be fatal.

In 2015 there were 1,732 road deaths, which was a 2% decrease since 2013. This is a great improvement and a contributing factor is that people are being made more and more aware of road safety and the risks that may come with being unsafe on the roads.

Some of the things you need to remember are:

  • Drink driving – never take the risk of driving when under the influence of alcohol. You’re much safer having a designated driver or just taking the taxi or bus home.

  • Under the influence of drugs – whether taking medication that could make you drowsy or if you’ve taken any other kind of drugs then please make sure that you do not get behind a wheel.

  • Using mobile phones and driving – mobile phones are just as dangerous as drink driving, if you are caught drink driving then you can receive up to a £2000 fine and receive 6 points off.

  • Always wear a seatbelt! – no matter how far you’re travelling whether just to the corner shop or across the country. Wearing your seatbelt is so important, if a car crashes then not wearing a seatbelt will very likely cost yourself or someone else’s life.

  • Always keep to the speed limits! – the speed limits are vital, and they are there for a reason, this it to prevent accidents in certain areas and to keep traffic flowing. Speeding in areas where there could be people crossing could end up being fatal for either yourself, passengers, or pedestrians / other motors.

How can these things be prevented?

With drivinglesson.com our instructor knows the importance of safety and understand that is one of the most essential elements to driving, our instructors are here with their full support to ensure when that test finally comes around that you are prepared what to do once you’re handed that pass certificate.

All you need to do is keep yours and other people’s safety in mind when you get behind the wheel of a car. If you feel like you’re in a state that’s not fit to get behind the wheel, then you are best not to get behind one and should find alternative travel.

You can purchase your provisional licence using the government website, you can also do this through your local post office. The prices for your provisional licence is as follows:
