Has everything!!!
My driving instructor recommended this book to me and let me tell you it literally has everything a learner like me appreciated to read! Really helped me in my lessons and is amazing with diagrams and doesn't overload with useless info and sticks to the important bits!

Everyone should have this book!
This is the bible driving instructors teach, always handy to have to brush up on techniques and safety
Personally I feel if everyone owned a copy of this, the roads wouldn’t be as dangerous as they are

Perfect book
Was recommended for my driving licence theory test but it covers so much more.
Up to date and has many valuable features and information for any driver.
