Are you being a bad egg this Easter?
Crack the question on whether you’re being a bad egg!
Learning to drive can be very stressful. Being a good egg will make it a little bit easier for you. But are you sure you’re not being a bad egg? Here are some things a bad egg would do!
Learning to drive doesn’t come in a day. Being impatient will only make you annoyed with the driving process; and possibly make you less productive!
Not checking your surroundings when performing a manoeuvre
Checking your surroundings are clear is vital because you need to protect not only your own safety, but that of other drivers/pedestrians too.
Not revising for your theory test
The theory test is the first hurdle in getting that pink licence. Revision is key if you want to pass and be one step closer to getting on the road.
Doesn’t get out on the road
The DVSA recommend you get 22 hours of private practice along with 45 hours of driving lessons with a good driving instructor. So, be a good egg and get those hours in.
Forgets about their driving lesson
Don’t be a bad egg by messing your instructor around and missing out on vital driving hours! Make sure you keep on top of your schedule so you never miss a lesson – and if you do, keep your instructor in the loop and rebook!
Tailgate other drivers
Driving too close to other cars is not something a good driver will do. This is dangerous and can cause serious accidents – be a good egg and keep a good distance apart!
Forgets to put the L plates on the car
Make sure others can see you’re a learner driver. Not only is it a legal requirement, but other drivers will (hopefully!) be more considerate towards you.
So, now you know what it means to be a bad egg, we hope that you can avoid it this Easter and be a good one!
