While we’d love to see every learner pass straight away, this sadly isn’t possible. If you’re unfortunate enough to have failed on your first attempt, however, you’re not in the minority. The average pass rate for first timers was 46.7% for 2017/18, according to the DVSA. That’s less than half of all learners! So, if you...

When Should I Use My Sidelights?

Ca headlights and sidelights

Ah, weather. The nation’s favourite topic. But when the sky’s looking grim, life still goes on—and so do our journeys. Unfortunately, bad weather can compromise our driving—in particular, that all-important ability: to see and be seen. Because of this, it’s crucial you know exactly how to light your car responsibly and legally, whatever’s happening around beyond your windscreen.

These days, cars are equipped with not one, but two different types of headlights—a welcome advance, but one that means there are more decisions to make. So, how do you work out whether to keep your headlights dipped, or if it’s time to go (wait for it) full beam...
