I disagree from a learner point of view because i was thrown in at the deep end and made to drive along the East Lancs A580 on my very first lesson, and passed my test first time But maybe more responsibility should be taken by the instructors?

I'd like to think my instructor allowed me to (even though i nearly followed through!) because he thought i was up to it. If someone clearly wasn't up to that level, then by all means stick them on industrial estates until they are!
