How to become a better driver

Often people assume that once they have passed their test they are a good driver but unfortunately this is often not the case. They may have been good enough on that day to pass their test but they certainly haven’t got the experience needed to be able to claim they are a great driver. Once you have passed your test, that is when you really start to learn how to drive. There are a number of different driving courses that you can attend if you want to perfect your driving skills even more.

Sometimes you may have to do a driving course such as a speed awareness course to avoid getting points or a fine if you have been caught speeding. These courses are designed to teach drivers car safety and make them aware of the dangers involved in speeding and how your actions can affect others.  Although you may not see the point in going on these courses, they have been proven to lower cases of speeding. You want to try and avoid getting any points on your license as this can push your insurance premium up and even make it that you cannot apply for certain jobs.

Some insurers will not insure you if you have too many points on your license and you can get your license taken off you altogether if you go over the limited number of points set by the DVLA.
