    Agree about motorway driving on test, but in ice and snow? That's just crazy talk! Unless you can make working a five day year with the other 300 days unpaid for the hundreds of thousands of examiners needed for that five day test period somehow worth their effort. And can you imagine what the roads would be like during that week-long test fest? I for one wouldn't be leaving the house

    No, what I meant was giving learners some motorway driving experience (outside of rush hours and supervised by their instructor), and as a separate issue, also include off-road driving on ice or snow, as part of the test, to prove their competence.

    Plus, I'd also include having some knowledge of basic mechanics, such as where the oil, water and coolant goes, etc, as most don't have a clue. That would soon weed out the hopeless idiots who shouldn't be behind the wheel of a car!

    Having an off-road component to the lessons and test (on a skid pan for safety) would be a good thing. Oil, water, coolant, tyre pressures - Anita takes care of that stuff, and she's quite vigilant about that sort of thing

    Yeah, didn't you say she was a bus driver once or something like that? So I'm not surprised she's vigilant

    But yes, I'm glad you agree that the proposals I suggested would work and help increase the standards of driving.

    Was talk once or twice re not allowing new passes onto motorways until they had a year under belt.
    I'm guessing it would be difficult to enforce and possibly unpopular as it never happened.

    All drivers will have a "first time on motorway" at some point, better this is done under qualified supervision. Better than having than kids jumping on m-ways after 12 months of forgetting what they learned, 12 months of thinking they're invincible, and 12 months of showing off to their mates and generally being a knobhead
