Joining a Derby Driving School Prepares You For a Life of Safe Driving: Derby Driving Instructors

Under new proposals, new drivers could be restricted to daytime driving only.  Also, a limit could be placed on the amount of passengers ‘P Plate’ drivers can carry in a single journey.  In addition, a minimum learning phase may be introduced, something that could shape the Derby driving school industry for the better.

Of course, these plans are still only under consideration and stem from a nationwide endeavour to reduce Britain’s road risks.  Mint Driving School Derby is of the opinion that this initiative could have a positive impact and could help towards reducing such statistics:

> A fifth of fatal accidents involve new drivers and their passengers
> A driver of 18 is more that three times as likely to crash than a motorist 20 years older

Whether or not these new proposals come into fruition, it is important to find the right Derby driving instructors from a leading Derby driving school.  Derby’s Mint Driving School always stays ahead of legislation and industry best practice.  Our Derby driving instructors are some of the best in the region, ensuring that you set off on your lifetime of driving in the right gear.  For more information, please get in touch!
