If you have a provisional driving license you are in the process of learning how to drive, getting familiar with the rules and regulations associated with being a safe motorist. However, you must show these types of considerations from day one, driving with L-plates so that fellow road users are aware you may be a risk, giving you a bit of leeway when it comes to space on the road. Even though you feel like a pretty confident driver the reality may be that you are not ready to be in charge of a vehicle alone, posing as a threat to the safety of UK roads. By wearing L-plates you are making fellow motorists aware that you may make a mistake, allowing them to appreciate that you do not have the same level of knowledge as they do. By refusing the wear these plates you could feel the wrath of the driving conviction process, being hit with two points on your license. This can have an effect on the type of insurance you are provided as a provisional driver as well as after you are issued with a full driving license. If you have a PL10 then contact High Gear today.
