Re: DVSA consider changes to driving test

Satnav 'as an alternative to following roadsigns'.  Presumably it will be up to the pupil to choose, in which case we don't need to buy one and the DVSA don't need to supply one.

(Wrote a much longer, comprehensive reply about why the proposed changes are stupid but managed to delete it and can't be arsed to write it again.)

You couldn't make it up could you!

How many people have been killed or seriously injured because the driver was putting the rear screen heater, or when reversing out of a parking bay (which, incidentally I thoroughly discourage!). They already pull up on the left and rejoin traffic.

Seriously, it's things like this that make me want to quit the whole business because they don't have a clue and just meddle in an attempt to justify their salarys.

Is this for real?
Tell me, how many actually have been killed or seriously injured whilst the driver switched on the rear demister (a whopping one button)!!??
Now tell me how the pupil is supposed to reverse the car with a foggy back window?

If your pupils can't switch on the demisters, wipers, or headlights without hitting something, stay away from the test centre.

Re: DVSA consider changes to driving test

More info from DVSA:

You will recall that we recently announced that we have received agreement to commence research to assess how the driving test could be made more realistic and better prepare young drivers in particular for the challenges of modern day driving.
The research will involve trialling a new version of the driving test that includes the use of a satellite navigation system, different manoeuvres and ‘show me tell me’ questions on the move.

The trial test meets all legislative requirements and candidates who pass will receive a full licence. Therefore, for a period of time, we will be offering two versions of the test at selected test centres around the country.  ADIs that use the test centres listed below are now offered the opportunity to participate in the trial by attending a meeting on the date stated.

Basildon                                                        Lower Gornal

20 January @ DTC                                      22 January, Wolverhampton DTC

26 January @ DTC                                      15 January @ DTC

(TBC – to be confirmed)

We will shortly be contacting ADIs in these areas via DVSA Direct and a poster in the DTC – both will contain or will be updated with full details of the event including timings.  We are planning to run at least two sessions at each of the events in the expectation that interest from ADIs will be high.

Re: DVSA consider changes to driving test

I actually attended the meeting at Musselburgh in Edinburgh at the start of January, I made a short video basically summarizing everything that was said for anyone who didn't manage to get to one of the meetings it can be viewed at http://angusdriving.co.uk/new-uk-drivin … 2015-dvsa/
