After the “L” Test

After the test:

P-plate

After you have passed the UK provisional test you are on probation for two years, if you obtain six or more penalty points you will lose your licence and will have to reapply for a provisional licence. This means starting all over again, theory test and practical, therefore your licence is a valued asset to you so you should ensure you continue to drive safely and gain more experience in the years ahead. 

The lessons and provisional test gave you the experience of learning procedures rules and safe driving, all you need to do is continue to gain experience and improve on these and there is no better way of gaining further experience quickly than taking a course and learning things that you was not able to explore and practice as a learner driver, as the years go by though many drivers forget what they have been taught, some pick up bad habits, due to these many drivers become involved in collisions or just have points on there licence.
