How to plan a Journey considering time and cost

BTEC Level 1 Award - Safe Road Skills & Attitude, Safe Driving
I want to plan a journey Hi on my last blog I talked about different road users. We commented on the different road users from pedestrians through to coaches and trains.

I don’t expect my readers to beware of the different choices. So how can you find out? In these days, I would expect you would use your…

Safe Driving
The demonstrating safe driving qualification can help reduce insurance costs and help get you a better job. It has long been recognized for a while that new drivers are at most risk from crashing.
