Teach people to drive, not just pass a test!

Make Road Craft mandatory to test new drivers to that standard. It might currently be the dvanced driving system, but it teaches an individual how to drive, vehicle control, skid pan driving (adverse weather), basic maintenance and how to make safe and effective progress whilst achieving the best possible performance from the driver's vehicle.

Why the contribution is important

Driving is a skill for life, too many are losing their lives. Teach the necessary skills to begin with. This will not only improve road safety but reduce vehicle collision and potential loss to life. I'm sure I would get the full support of the IAM and ROSPA for this... Trial it... you've nothing to lose and everything to gain.

    Road craft is important and usually time driving and experience creates your craft, however, following the test most new drivers totally forget the basics they have just been taught.
