Your responsibilities

As your supervisor, they’re jointly in charge of the vehicle with you. The following must be adhered to:

  • No drink, drugs, speeding or using mobile phones.
  • The car must be properly insured for both of you and for the purpose you are using it.
  • 'L' plates must be displayed front and back.
  • It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure that the car is fit to use on the road, ask your supervising driver to check the tyres, brakes etc with you ensuring you are both happy that the car is safe and legal. Whoever is supervising your driving, MUST be over 21 years old and have had a full driving licence for at least 3 years.

More advice

  • Move from an empty car park to quiet roads to everyday driving.
  • When ready, move on to evening and wet-weather driving.
  • Your supervising driver needs to be patient, no matter how much your driving might scare them! Remember! Points and convictions can be gained by learner drivers even when out practising.
