Anyway, I don't agree Nick, and my post was much better than yours
It depends where one lives, our local instructors make use of the A14.
The whole point of passing the test is to achieve a basic standard that can be built on, not to express your social beliefs on....
I'm no saint when it comes to driving, I am guilty as the next person when it comes to speeding etc, but you have to carry out constant risk assessments when behind the wheel, ie never speed in towns or villages, the risks are so much greater than on a dual carriageway etc
Personally, I believe that when someone has got 15,000 miles under their belt they should enrol at RoSPA for advanced training, it costs a nominal sum for membership and all your training is 'free' (or being 'observed' as they call it).
Anyway, who said your post is better than mine? You, I suppose!
