    Not true.You are not required by law to use "P" Plates, however some people use them to alert other drivers that you've just passed, to give you more space.

    Tbh, if it were me, I'd put them, and drive a few metres down the road, and take them off... There's no legal requirement, and unless it's his car, and can stop you driving it, then I'd tell him to stop being overbearing. Obviously if it's his car that you're using, then you should probably do what he says because otherwise he can just stop you taking it out...

    I wouldn't ever have used them. A lot of these 'crash for cash' scams that are going round purposely target people with P plates as it is easier for a new driver to get the blame in an accident due to lack of experience.
