    Hi everyone, I've recently began taking lessons again and would like some advice from drivers what are basic rules of the road? Such as giving way to the right and no overtaking on the left.

    Thanks in advance and Happy Easter! X

    I'd recommend getting the Highway Code, as BrownEyedGirl92 suggested. This website also has a load of information. I'd also suggest searching "Bad Drivers" on Youtube. Basically what you find are a load of video compilations of poor driving which can help you fine-tine your own. You can put in specific areas, too, such as Derby, Brum or Wales.

    Hope this helps! Happy easter, mate.

    Dont speed
    Drive on the left
    Give way to the right
    Check car is in neutral before turning it on
    Dont hit anyone
    Dont follow the car in front too closely
    Stop when the lights turn amber (youre not supposed to drive through amber lights).
