its all good and proper making driving tests harder but i dont think theyre addressing the issues that actually cause crashes. Its well known that young ppl (teenagers) especially lads are more likely to crash than others, hence the stupidly high car insurance. But evidence suggests thats not down to poor driving ability, but due to more of them drinking/taking drugs and driving. duno bout anyone else but i know quite a few wo do it (idiots). first thing my instructor said when i passed: "now you'll learn how to really drive" And IMO, its true; the least safe drivers i know are the ones who passed first time and are still driving as if they were taking the test; it may be a way to drive but its certainly not the best way!
