Rascal's Learning to Drive

Recommended Posts

Has it changed much?

The last one I had was about three years ago when I was sent on a speed awareness course :(

I am pretty sure that if I was retested now I would in all likelihood fail to pass a driving test!

Not because I am a bad driver of course but being taught to pass a test and then learning to drive are two different things completely.

It's not driving to civilian standards it's emergency response driving :default_biggrin:

  That said, I think it would be pretty poor to go about the roads coming up behind someone and flashing them and using your horn because you will likely just cause the car in front to make a move whereby they feel intimidated and under pressure and that might not be what you expect causing more of a risk.

 

 

Tell that one to Italian Drivers

Their horn hardly stops sounds like quality control at FIAMM

Unless it is Fiamm's battery factory! Great air horns had a set on my Spitfire.

I used to have one of those! Specifically the Fiat Strada 75. It truly went like stink! The acceleration was staggering. I recall pulling up at home one night and a police chappy approaching me red faced complaining he couldn't get near enough to me to signal me to stop! However, a truer rust bucket I have never encountered. The door skins came away from the door frame and used to flap in the wind! I wouln't mind but the thing had been rust proofed using that cavity injection stuff. Can't recall its name. Traded it in eventually to a blind garage proprietor for a cracking Jetta!
