Not long now until you can start to learn to drive again! - DCS driver training

I hope you and your loved ones are well and keeping safe. What a very hard winter it's been. It's been a while since you've been able to, amongst many other things, learn to drive in Oswestry or across the border in Wales, but with spring finally here though, hope is in the air. For young people in particular, the hope of returning to be able to see friends, get back to school and, in some cases, learning to drive and passing their test!...

[01/04/21]   Happy New Year to all :)

The current restrictions prevent training taking place in Wales, so during January DCS is only working with Shropshire residents, who are at time of writing in tier 3. Even then, priority is limited to those with a test soon.

DCS is currently not accepting any new students.

...and not everything is as it seems If you're out on the roads in Oswestry, Shrewsbury, even perhaps Welshpool, Llanymynech or Four Crosses, you might well have noticed (or rather, not noticed...) the somewhat faded road markings on a fair few of the roads in these areas.

Driving Test Booking Resumes Normal Service - DCS driver training

Although we're still going through uncertain times, the DVSA has recently announced that, after months of disruption, the test booking service has now allocated several hundred thousand appointments. This covers a huge backlog of candidates awaiting patiently for a test date. Booking tests right through to January might seem like a risky strategy currently, but I guess the Department is in a bit of a lose / lose predicament. [ 165 more words ]

Video Games Vs Real Life

Quite a lot of my trainees enjoy gaming, as I do too. And very often something will come up around comparing playing a game to learning to drive; using hand / eye coordination, gaining experience by attempting missions / manoeuvres, levelling up... That sort of thing. Any gamer who's played on one of the most recent generations of console, or a pc, will vouch for the frankly awesome graphics and playing mechanics of, say, state-of-the-art racing or role playing games.

DVSA announce test booking to reopen

From tomorrow, Friday 21 August, the test booking service from the DVSA is to reopen to candidates in England and Wales. It's been a long time coming, as examiners try to clear the backlog of both critical worker tests and those candidates who had a test booked before lockdown. The DVSA say that everyone in those groups has now been offered a new test date, so it's time to open up booking to the wider public. [ 139 more words ]

Cambridge’s Dutch experiment

The new style 'Dutch' roundabout in Cambridge What you are looking at above may seem unusual, and there's a good reason for that. We're not used to seeing so many markings (or colours) on a roundabout in the UK, so there's obviously something different about it. The key difference is that priority - usually, unarguably, given to the motorist - is given to cyclists and pedestrians. [ 451 more words ]

Has driving got worse during lockdown?

It's been mentioned by a few trainees over the past two weeks that, as restrictions have gradually been lifted, the number of incidents they've witnessed on the roads, as either a learner or a passenger, has increased. This observation was something that had occurred to me a couple of times too. Whilst on drives in early July in particular, I must have had around 2 or 3 'unusual' extra incidences a week.

British Leyland made terrible cars. Are you still driving one..?

Are you in a job where Continuous Professional Development is a requirement? Play any sport? If so, how often do you need to practice free kicks / backhand shots / out shot doubles..? How about other hobbies. Still learning how to maintain the perfect garden? Complete the trickiest Sudoku? Bake the perfect cake? Even when it comes to your favourite video game, you go from level to level, getting better all the time until it's completed, and then, you get the next one in the series. [ 631 more words ]
