From snapped handbrakes to stalling mishaps, TSR members share their most memorable driving lesson experiences
Learner drivers had to temporarily hang up their car keys when the UK went into lockdown at the end of March. As part of the government’s measures to slow the spread of coronavirus, all non-essential travel was banned and theory and practical tests were put on hold.
But now the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has said that, as of 4 July, learners will be able to dust off their L-plates and get back behind the wheel.
Theory tests will also be up and running again from 4 July, with social distancing measures in place. You’ll have a couple of weeks to wait before car driving tests restart on 22 July, though – perfect for brushing up on your steering skills and making sure that you’re definitely test-ready.
You can find the DVSA’s full list of when tests will start up again for all other vehicles here.
To celebrate getting back on the open road, we’ve rounded up some of the funniest experiences that TSR members have had during their driving lessons. You can definitely file these under don’t-try-this-at-home.
