some practice hints for when you drive with family
Don’t carry passengers. There is no law to stop you having a passenger in the back of the car.
It is not normally a good idea to carry extra passengers, because it can affect your concentration. If you do then sit them where they will not restrict your view in the mirror
Driving with friends and relatives
You can be fined up to £1,000 and get 3 to 6 penalty points on your provisional licence if you drive without the right supervision.
Anyone you practice your driving with (without paying them) must:
- be over 21
- be qualified to drive the type of vehicle you want to learn in, eg they must have a manual car licence if they’re supervising you in a manual car
- have had their driving licence for 3 years (from countries in the European Commission or European Economic Area)
