If you’ve been driving for quite some time now, you might not give much thought to getting behind the wheel of a family member or friend’s car. With how costly car insurance can be, surely it gives you cover for driving other people’s cars, right? Well, if you’ve been driving as if that is indeed the case, you might want to give it a rethink. If you’re driving other people’s cars without the right cover in place, you could be...

10 Bad Driving Habits You Should Stop Right Now

As soon as you earn your driving licence and start hitting the road solo, the sense of freedom can be very empowering. There’s no need to worry about tests or the watchful eye of your instructor anymore, because you are going it alone. Woohoo! Don’t get too carried away, though. A licence doesn’t grant you free rein to do whatever you want on the road. It’s important to play by the rules and work with the skills you learnt in...

There’s nothing quite as off-putting as getting to grips with driving a new car. All of the familiar nuances that you’re used to with your previous car are now thrown to the wind.

So, it only makes sense that this is where you really need to be focusing your cleaning efforts! Plenty of people end up treating their car like a bit of a rubbish dump—you wouldn’t...

Hazard Perception: Dos and Don’ts

Before learners can even think about booking their driving test, they have one major roadblock to overcome: the theory test. For many, the multiple-choice section is a walk in the park (or at least pretty self-explanatory). The hazard perception test, however, tends to trip up unsuspecting learners. Made up of video clips, the hazard perception test is designed to make sure learners know how to spot developing hazards—a key skill needed when taking to the roads. If you’re not too...
