The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is very customer-focused these days. Although we don’t owe anyone a pass or a fail, we do owe candidates a fair test, and we provide a debrief at the end to help explain the result.
Well, from the window at Blog Towers it looks like summer’s here. It may be the usual British thing, when we all get overexcited and start wearing shorts, only to have to cover up with a duffel coat days later, but at the moment it’s looking very promising.
As we’ve blogged recently about safe driving on country roads, we thought it would be a good idea to follow up with a subject that deserves a post all of its own. Yes, it’s time to talk about deer.

If you’re anything like my kids (who are 16 and 18), the only time you’ll be physically separated from your phone is when you’re submerged in water – in the shower, the bath, the swimming pool or the sea. Any other time, it’ll be somewhere about your person and you’ll be taking a sneaky peek.
The cost of learning to drive can vary enormously from person to person, depending on their ability and experience. Those who need the fewest lessons are usually those who’ve already had some driving experience and have a natural talent for driving. So, if you’re not a ‘natural’, and you’ve had no previous driving experience, you’ll probably need quite a few lessons – like most people.
When you’re coming up for your driving test, it becomes the principal focus – the be-all and end-all. The worry about whether you’ll pass can eclipse everything else in your life. That is, of course, unless you have something even BIGGER to worry about!
The World Cup has just started, so I’ll tell you a football-related story which shows a way you can pin your hopes on something other than the test, just to make it less stressful.
