I have heard from a driving instructor over here in Northern Ireland that the elctronic handbrake mechanism must be disabled during a driving test. Is this true elsewhere in the UK. Can anyone shed any light on this.
I must admit I really like the electronic handbrake, Remember Buses, HGV vehicles, Tractors have had them fitted for many years now prior to there fitment on private cars. The only quibble I have with it is the location on the Scenic I would rather it was placed at my left hand as opposed to my right .
That's why I've consciously and deliberately retained the habit of manually applying the handbrake when I park the Lag. I know it's redundant on my car, but I've yet to forget to put the handbrake on when I've been driving somebody else's.Must agree here, I think its great (except manual release ...its a bit of a pain), the only drawback I've got is that I keep leaving the Clio without puting the handbrake on .... still no harm done yet!
