At my advanced age, to prove to my 20 something year old grandchildren that I am not too doddering to drive, I am halfway through a IAM Roadsmart course. This is a one, sometimes two, hour session once a month for 10 - 12 months. You have a log book with marks on a variety of issues. Mine is held north of Southampton. Last week we went on motorways, dual and single carriageways and narrow lanes , all varying in speed limits. We went round Winchester for quite a while where the limit is 20 mph. The exam at the end has a Police Highway examiner. I wonder if the basic DVLA test is tough enough. Perhaps, as in some countries, new drivers should have to display a P plate until a further test to include motorway and night driving.
