it doesn't really matter how many times it took to pass the test, just cuz you passed first time doesn't make you a better driver......

No passing first time doesn't make you a better driver, but failing 5 times does make you a dodgy one

ive always wondered if you could just pay someone (with points to spare), to take the blame for the speeding :confused:
technological advances have taken place and new cameras are to be implemented which takes the picture of the person in the car

**** i hate it when i talk liek that

wouldnt it mean that he had far more experience prior to passing his test - less likely to be dangerous compared to someone who passed first time

they'd have to be insured to drive on your car for starters (or fully comprehensive) and risk going to jail if a picture of them driving as opposed to the actual driver was taken.

That could be true, althought it could also be said the person lacks concentration and/or coordination and repeatedly makes the same errors.

well it wouldn't by the speed camera (prob have to get someone with the same hair colour as you though!) - but if the authorities were bored they could always look at pictures from a nearby roadside camera near the same time the speeding took place. it has been known.

I have 3 points on my license, yea.. when you get that letter through the post headed "Kent Police" and "Notice of Intended Prosecution" in bold.. you just think "ohhhhhhhhhh ....", ruined my day that did! But ah well, £60 and 3 points.. worst thing is that i was doing 36mph in a 30 zone. Okay fair enough, yes, it's still illegal at 31, but y'know.. I was quite angry with myself for doing it for a few weeks, but you get over it. AND it must have been some ******* copper with his mobile gun thing, there aren't any speed cameras on that road.

I have to say though, it definately teaches you a lesson.. i could REALLY do with that £60 at the minute, and ofcourse, that cushion of 6 possible points on my license. This way, one slip.. and i'm DQ'd. grr!

Oh , for the record.. yes, the speed camera flashes twice. Seen it plenty of times driving on the motorway at night and some poor ******* gets caught driving in the opposite direction.

Not entirrrrely sure to be honest, but I THINK you get a 6 month ban and then have to retake your theory and practical afterwards. Not that worried about it, with uni coming up in september and the car at home like 200 miles away, meh!
