    Ive just passed my test and already had a crash. Now my mum wants me to use green L plates next time I go out. Does anyone else use these, are they uncool?

    You crashed already?! I hope you crashed into a wall and not into somebody else's car / property!

    I think you should listen to your mum and get some green P plates (P = probationary)... you can see them as uncool but I don't really, it's just a matter of opinion but crashing and watching your insurance premium shoot up isn't cool at all.

    the problem is Green Ls /Ps what ever are a magnet for poor driver behaviour - from other drivers

    unless and until they are required by law in the UK i would not advocate their use by anyone

    they do not address the fundamental issue here of 'giddyness' at passing and a basic lack of observation and anticipation .... 'prat plates' are not a replacement for Pass Plus or membership of IAM or RoADA which would be far more useful.

    Is any new drivers currently using P plates - is there a bad reaction from other drivers?

    Hi can I just say ... ZIPPY is talking a whole load of rubbish ... I recently passed my driving test and have been using grenn L plates. Since I have been using them I have noticed alot of drivers are very considerate ... especailly when it comes to roundabouts and junctions etc because they know that you wont be as confident as them to just take off quickly ... When I first passed my test I went out without the green L plates and my god it was more intimidating than what its been with the plates on

    WELL DONE on passing your test hun x
