Coronavirus: Driving After Lockdown

Unless you’re a key worker, it’s likely that your car usage has declined significantly since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, many drivers haven’t used their car at all since lockdown was announced. It’s not surprising, then, to find that some may feel uneasy about driving. Given that a big part of being a driver is having confidence in your driving ability, this is slightly concerning. So, how do you get used to driving after lockdown? If you...

Is The Theory Test Hard To Pass?

Before you can take the driving test and get your hands on a full driving licence, you first have to pass the theory test. Designed to test your knowledge of the road, Highway Code and much more, the theory test packs quite the punch. Of course, this clashes with the popular opinion amongst learners that the test simply requires common sense. You might be wondering then, is the theory test hard? In order to answer this question, we’re going to...
