Are you learning to drive?
Gaining experience before you take your test can not only increase your chances of passing first time but also help you be a much safer driver. Buying short term learner driver insurance can be an economical way to get that vital time on the road.
How to pass your test as quickly and economically as possible
Professional driving instruction is very advisable if you are to learn how to drive properly. There is more to it than just mastering steering and gear changes, and learning the highway code. You have to learn how to react to other road users, anticipate possible dangers, and adapt to changing weather conditions to name just a few. A trained instructor should be able to pass on knowledge about these and many other situations that you are likely to come up against.
There is no substitute for practical experience, as well as formal tuition, though. This way you can gain confidence as well as learn to make the right decisions and act instinctively instead of having to think first! The problem is that driving instructors don't come cheap and there may be a friend, or family member, with a car you can practice in, or you may own a car yourelf. This is where short term learner driver insurance comes in.
