Having passed your Driving Test you can now drive by yourself, which is an exciting time as driving gives you freedom and independence. However, it is also very expensive as insurance premiums for new drivers can often far exceed the cost of a car for a very good reason. Statistics show that new drivers of any age are more likely to have an accident within the first two years of passing their Driving Test than at any other time in their driving career, mainly due to lack of experience, but sometimes due to a wrong attitude towards driving. Insurance premiums reflect the increased risk. However you can now sign up with IDT Driving School for a Pass Plus Course, which is a training scheme for new drivers designed to develop your skills and knowledge to help you become a safer driver. There is no Test at the end and Pass Plus will usually entitle you to a discount off your car insurance.

What you should do when you see blue lights approaching
One situation that often sends new drivers into panic mode is when they see an emergency vehicle coming towards them or even when they just hear the sirens.
Blue Light Aware is a short video, produced on behalf of the emergency services. Their crews rely on the help of other road users when they’re on a ‘blue light’ journey.
By watching Blue Light Aware, you will better understand their needs, you will be reducing the risks you face, you will be contributing to a safer road environment and you might also be helping to save a life.
