Always use the MSM routine and signal, if necessary, before you park.

Try not to touch the kerb when you park. Scraping your tyres can weaken them, possibly with serious results.

Don’t park so near to other vehicles that it will be difficult for you and them to get out. This is especially important if the other vehicle is displaying a Blue Badge. Allow room for a wheelchair to be manoeuvred or loaded in these cases. As a general rule, park parallel with, and close to, the kerb.

Always switch off the engine and headlights (and fog lights) when you park. Before you leave the vehicle, make sure that it’s in gear and the parking brake is applied firmly.

It's National Dog Day!

There's always a place for dogs - even in the Highway Code, which says:

Do not let a dog out on the road on its own. Keep it on a short lead when walking on the pavement, road or path shared with cyclists or horse riders.

When in a vehicle make sure dogs or other animals are suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you, or themselves, if you stop quickly. A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog cage or dog guard are ways of restraining animals in cars.

Do you like taking your dog out on the road with you?

🚦 Rule 196: Pelican crossings are signal-controlled crossings where flashing amber follows the red ‘Stop’ light.

You MUST stop when the red light shows.

When the amber light is flashing, you MUST give way to any pedestrians on the crossing.

If the amber light is flashing and there are no pedestrians on the crossing, you may proceed with caution.

You must not drink and drive. Alcohol will seriously affect your judgement and ability to drive safely.

Any amount of alcohol can affect your judgement of speed, distance and risk; it can also make you sleepy.

In 2015, 200 people were killed in drink-drive accidents and 1,170 people were seriously injured.

You risk a minimum 12 month driving ban, a criminal record, a hefty fine, up to 6 months in prison and an endorsement on your licence for 11 years.

1 in 4 fatal collisions involves a speeding driver.

Don't let that be you.

Driver testing services – moving beyond level 0 in Scotland
Following the Scottish Government’s announcement setting out plans to move beyond level 0 in Scotland on 9 August, we want to explain what these changes mean to driver testing services in Scotland and how these will affect you and your pupils.
Driving lessons: keeping yourself and others safe
There is still a risk you could catch or pass on the virus, even if you are fully vaccinated. You are encouraged to exercise caution and consider the risks. While no situation is risk free, there are actions we can take to protect ourselves and others around us.
Wearing a face covering
There continues to be a legal requirement for you and your pupil to wear a face covering during a driving lesson unless either of you are exempt.
COVID-19 spreads through the air by droplets and aerosols that are exhaled from the nose a COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The evidence to date continues to point towards transmission mainly occurring via contact from symptomatic cases.
When worn correctly, face coverings can provide protection to those around the wearer from droplet and aerosol transmission and they can also provide some protection to the wearer. They also serve a purpose in source control by reducing contamination to the environment surrounding the wearer.
Testing twice a week, even if you do not have symptoms
Around 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have any symptoms. This means they could be spreading the virus without knowing it. Testing twice a week increases the chances of detecting COVID-19 when a person is infectious - helping to make sure you do not spread COVID-19.
Rapid lateral flow testing is currently being offered in Scotland to people who do not have symptoms. You may wish to use regular rapid testing to help manage periods of risk such as close contact in a car or whe

Be sure to keep an eye out for cyclists this Cycle to Work Day, and remember…

🚗You MUST NOT drive or park in a cycle lane marked by a solid white line during its times of operation. Do not drive or park in a cycle lane marked by a broken white line unless it is unavoidable. You MUST NOT park in any cycle lane whilst waiting restrictions apply.

🚲Overtake only when it is safe and legal to do so. Give motorcyclists, cyclists and horse riders at least as much room as you would when overtaking a car.

👀 It's often difficult to see motorcyclists and cyclists. Always look out for them before you emerge from a junction - they could be approaching faster than you think.

Never:
- drive onto the crossing unless the road is clear on the other side
- drive over it ‘nose to tail’ in case the vehicle in front breaks down
- stop on or just after the crossing
- park close to the crossing.

If there are lights, you must obey the signals. A steady amber light followed by twin flashing red lights warn that a train or tram is approaching.

Do not move onto the crossing after the lights show: stop behind the white line on the road. If you’re on the crossing when the amber light comes on, keep going – do not stop on the crossing.

Wait until the lights turn off and the barriers open (if the crossing has barriers) before driving over the crossing. If the lights stay on after a train or tram has passed, it means there’s another one approaching.

Need to book a theory test from 6 September? 📝

Our new booking system is now open 🥳

New tests will be released each week 👇
https://www.gov.uk/book-theory-test

[07/15/21]   Congratulations to Rachael McRobb on passing her driving test today in Dundee. Well done and stay safe. Thanks Euan 😊

Welcome to GOV.UK 13/07/2021

Welcome to GOV.UK

From 14 July over 4,500 more theory tests will be available



Additional theory tests dates in Scotland

From 14 July over 4,500 more theory tests will be available to book on GOV.UK for tests from 19 July up to and including 3 September.
The additional test capacity has been made available following the Scottish Government’s announcement on 13 July that physical distancing rules in Scotland are being relaxed from 2 metres to 1 metre from 19 July in indoor public settings.
We will be writing to all candidates with a theory test booking in Scotland to let them know about the additional test dates, to give them the opportunity to look for an earlier theory test date if they feel ready to take their test sooner.

Theory tests appointments after 3 September

As part of the ongoing changes to the theory test service the new theory test booking service will go live on 19 July. You and your pupils will be able to book a test for after 3 September on the new booking service.
The new booking service is available at the same web address as the current one – https://www.gov.uk/book-theory-test.
If you want to change a theory test appointment from a date booked for before, or on 3 September, to a date on or after 6 September, you will need to cancel your current theory test on GOV.UK and rebook online using the new booking system.
This is because the 2 booking systems are separate. Refunds will be issued for cancelled tests as normal.
Theory test bookings with additional support can only be cancelled or rescheduled by contacting the customer contact centre.

[07/07/21]   We are thrilled to share our new Safe Driving for Life website



Sharing the new Safe Driving for Life website

Today, 7 July 2021, we are thrilled to share our new Safe Driving for Life website with learner drivers and the public.
We are doing this through a national press announcement, social media and by emailing theory and driving test candidates.

A reminder of our new content and features

The new Safe Driving for Life website has been developed with feedback from ADIs and National Associations Strategic Partnership (NASP).
The exciting new features in the eLearning subscriptions include:

a test readiness tool that can track a:

pupil’s theory test revision and indicates when they are fully prepared for the exam

potential driving instructor’s theory test revision and indicates when they are fully prepared for their ADI part 1 exam

ability for pupils to share their theory test progress with their instructor

ability to share progress with any friends or family they have private practice with, ensuring it supports tuition from a professional instructor

eLearning gift subscription, from £15, so family and friends can buy a learning package for someone who needs it.

This is alongside the fantastic free content that is available to anyone, such as topical blog articles, free practice theory tests and comprehensive advice pages, which includes top tips for the driving test.
Please note the new website feature that allows learners to link to their instructor via the site is available to you for free if your pupil has bought an eLearning subscription.
You will also be able to see your pupil’s progress and revision after they have passed their test; helping to address knowledge gaps in future lessons.

How you can support us

We believe that the new website will help learners prepare for their theory and driving tests, reducing the number of re-sits adding to the demand for tests.
If your pupils are preparing for their theory test, direct them towards the webs

New theory test booking service: change to go live date

We wrote to you on 6 May 2021 to let you know we are making changes to the theory test service for England, Scotland and Wales, including changes to the theory test booking service.
The new theory test service will start from Monday 6 September. As part of the new service, a new booking system was due to open on 8 July.
Unfortunately, this has been postponed to 19 July to allow time for final testing before we launch. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
You can continue to book tests for dates on or before 3 September only, using the current booking system. Theory test dates for Monday 6 September onwards will only be available when the new booking service opens on 19 July.
We will provide an update on the opening of the new theory test booking service and planned changes to theory test centre locations later this month.
Practical test bookings are not affected by changes to the theory test service.
Thank you for your patience.

‘The service is appalling’: drivers face holdups as DVLA fails to send licences



Readers say their lives have been put on hold because of delays at the government agency

Diane Black-Ware is getting desperate. She was due to receive her new driving licence in January, and its non-arrival has left her spending £50 a day on taxis to get to her job in a rural caravan park. Since the start of the year, her taxed and insured car has been left unused at her Penrith home.

“If DVLA doesn’t send me my licence soon I’m going to have to give up my job as I can’t go on like this,” she says. “I’m so desperate that I called them 97 times in a single day last week and was still unable to get through. It is inexcusable how DVLA are treating people.”
Martin Ryan, from Lincoln, fears that his house purchase is going to fall through because the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has had his passport for the past six weeks. He desperately needs it back to be able to prove his identity to his solicitor and mortgage firm to enable the purchase to go though.

I have tried every day for the last three weeks to contact them by phone and only get a message saying ‘try later’
