On December 4th, the practical bit of the British Driving Test changes.
The BBC tell us this here.
It sort of makes sense - bringing in the distractions posed by modern technology including switching on the rear-window heater while driving along. Hmm. Not sure about that last bit - surely extracting CD 2 of Now That's What I Call Music 39 and playing Track 6 while driving along would be more realistic.
(and no, I picked it at random and can't be bothered looking up what that track actually is)
Another part of the new test will be taking orders from a Sat-Nav - I hope all Driving Instructors choose the Brian Blessed voice for their Sat-Navs. It would be nice if the Sat-Nav could also include an instruction to turn on to a railway line to weed out the drivers who would just blindly follow it anyway.
back to 2011, when my Blog was still young, for a few.
