- Reminder about licencing regulation
Anyone who took their driving test after January 1997 is reminded that you can't drive minibuses or tow trailers (except the really small ones) unless you take the appropriate D1 and B+E category driving tests - This includes caravans, horse boxes and the like. Call us for a chat about how we can help you obtain these licence entitlements.
- Licence to Kill
Powerful BBC documentary that is a must for all young drivers to see.
- Van Driver Familiarisation Course
I completed one of our van familiarisation courses on Monday.
A blue chip company with staff in central London.
I gave a laptop presentation to 4 new staff who were about to be unleashed in vehicles 2 or 3 times bigger than they had ever driven before.
One of them had not driven since she had passed 3 or 4 years beforehand and another drove a Lupo!
I then took them out in pairs for morning and afternoon sessions
As it turned out 2 were reasonably competent and with practice will be good van drivers.
The others caused many 'wheel grabbing' occasions and I probably saved more lives in a day than an ER nurse would save in a month.
It is probably criminally negligent for a company to put their employees into a van without assessment and training.

- Introducing PassSmart
The Big Red L Company is pretty impressed by the very nice people at Pass Smart. They have great technical expertise and have created the best driving instructor directory ever. For all driving instructors I suggest you sign up for free now.
After a few revisions of their website they are now even better placed to help both pupils find their perfect local ADI.
- Teenager receives driving licence despite never passing his test
TEENAGER Rheece Lowden shows off his new driving licence despite never passing his test.
The 19-year-old from Sunderland was sent the full licence in the post after a mistake by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA).
Rheece was due to take his driving test last month, but cancelled it online.
But he still received the official paper and plastic authorisation just days later.
I couldnt believe it when it arrived, he said. I dont know how it could have happened. Not only did I cancel it, Ive never been anywhere near a test centre since.
Rheece, who is unemployed, said he hoped passing his test would improve his job prospects, and spent hundreds of pounds on lessons.
He added: Ive waited so long to sit my test. Ive spent the best part of £1,000 on lessons. Ive been learning, on and off, for the past two years or so.
Ive failed my test twice, but I was really confident that this time round I was going to pass.
Although the bad weather has caused me a few problems and the snow has held me up a bit, it was going well until all this blew up.
Now the learner driver is demanding that the DVLA take responsibility for the mistake.
Ive never been given an apology, he said. When I went to try to re-book the test, I was told I couldnt because I was already a registered driver with a full licence.
Not only have I lost the £62 that it cost to book the test, Im also going to be charged £20 for a new provisional licence because the last one was automatically made invalid when they had me down as a qualified driver.
I dont know where to go from here.
The DVLA have asked me to send the licence back, but Im refusing to until they take some responsibility for what theyve done.
They are going to charge me for the mistakes they have made.
The mistake was put down to the Driving Standards Agency.
A spokesman said: The integrity of the driving test is paramount, and our procedures are designed to ensure that full driving licences are only issued to drivers who have taken and passed the appropriate tests.
This was an isolated incident and we are grateful to the customer who drew it to our attention.
We took immediate action to avoid any repeat and apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
