Driving with Friends or Relatives

Ever wanted to go for extra practice session with your friends or Relatives? Wondered what is the legal requirements for you and your friend or relative? Government has made everything simple for you to understand. See Below some of the guidelines published on https://www.gov.uk/driving-lessons-who-can-teach-you

“You can be fined up to £1,000 and get 3 to 6 penalty points on your provisional licence if you drive without the right supervision.

Anyone you practise your driving with (without paying them) must:

-          be over 21

-          be qualified to drive the type of vehicle you want to learn in, eg they must have a manual car licence if they’re supervising you in a manual car

-          have had their driving licence for 3 years

It’s illegal for the person to use a mobile phone while they are supervising you.”
