Images from weheartit.comThe thing I noticed the most was how you get on with your driving instructor as well as the tester, if you don't click it wont work! Simple. I went through 4 instructors before I found the perfect guy, through RED Driving School. The same went for my second tester, the first one was apparently the worst and notoriously hard to pass with but the second was so funny. He actually came from the same town in Scotland so we had a lot to chat about, it put me at ease.
RED Driving School asked us all to share a few key pieces of information on road safety, a vital part of driving I think you will agree. RED are committed to working with other organisations that have the same standards and belief in road safety. One of those is charity called Brake, who look to educate young people (17-24) who are statistically more likely to be involved in road traffic accidents, a sad but very true fact. One that hit home personally 2 weeks ago when I lost someone I went to school with because of a careless driver.

Accidents happen and I think main point I am trying to stress here is to be comfortable when your learning, be happy with the person (people) teaching you, the last thing you want is to rush or be stressed. Take it all the valuable information that places like RED Driving School and Brake can give you.
Be safe when learning, be safe when you have passed - none of us are invincible. It just takes on silly mistake and I hope that never happens to any of you wonderful people. I'll leave you with this from Brake's ‘Pledge2DriveSafely’ supported fully by RED and by me..
It has six golden rules :
Slow – within speed limits
Sober – free from alcohol and drugs
Sharp – not tired, ill or with poor sight
Silent – phone off and out of reach
Secure – belted up in a safe vehicle
Sustainable – only when you have to
Tell me your driving stories, are you learning or did you pass?
