Using a sat nav while driving

Learner and instructor in car using sat nav

With so many in-car gadgets available, it's important to know how to use them safely and legally.

Sat navs - whether they’re built-in, standalone or mobile phone apps - have the potential to divert your attention from the road, which increases your risk of having an accident. So it’s important you know how to use them safely.

Four major riding risks

As it’s the time of year when motorcyclists dust off their leathers ready for the first ride of spring, we thought we’d put together a post to remind everyone who loves their bike of four big risk areas for riders. (And it won’t hurt for other road users to know this too!)


Riding into and out of bends is potentially dangerous and riders who fail to ‘read’ bends properly are at a greater risk than riders who are comfortable with the technique and know how to use it effectively.

Stay safe on country roads

Picture this

It’s a lovely, sunny day (trust me – you will see the sun again!) and you’re wending your way through country lanes, enjoying the freedom of the Great British countryside. Sounds delightful, doesn’t it? No traffic crowding you from all sides, no honking horns; just the gentle rustling of trees and the occasional rabbit foraging at the roadside.
