Perhaps off subject slightly, but in the news there is quite a bit about improvements and school's being 'independent' through private or commercial financing arrangement. We have one such new school nearby, and I notice on a Sunday mornings there are driving (car and motorcycle) tutorials being conducted on-site. Now to me that's one definite improvement.
But having stated that. Will it stop the 'boy racer' or unlicensed and uninsured from being on the roads, irrespective of age, knowledge or experience.
I think think after passing a test people of any age should be limited to a vehicle of say 60bhp maximum for a year and Mandatory display of a green P plate along with a ban on motorways. After a year a pass plus style test should be taken before the P plate can be removed and motorways be driven on
P.S perhaps the BHP limit should be enforced until the age of 25 when the boy/girl racers might have matured a bit or a least gained some experience. As the law now stands somebody rich enough can pass their test just after 17 then drive a super car down the motorway,in the rain snow & ice
