Another clueless idiot who thinks they're an expert driver, who knows everything.

Remember that when you look at your insurance premiums. They're that high for a reason !


P plates should be mandatory for the first 12 months after passing the test.

wow that cannot be a good sign of your speed lol

I passed my test a month ago and my L plates flew too, I was going maybe 50 on a country lane; my fella was attempting to ge me over the fear of driving above 28mph. I passed my test. I still go 28mph everywhere!

Good deal if you want them though - I heard they are thinking of making these mandatory for the first year which isnt a bad thing.

In NI we have "R" plates which restrict a driver to 45mph for a year once they pass the test. They have to be displayed at all times when the new driver is driving the car or else they are charged.....6 points and you are banned immediately

I don't agree with them at all (although voted hot as cheap).....if you're not confident enough to be on the road once you've passed your test take more lessons or drive with an experienced driver.......

leave it out no need for these , P plates wont save you, gain confidence the real way
its like wearing a dunce hat at school
but then again i know who to avoid from far away(usually its just avoid nissan micras and honda jazz doing 35 in the fast lane)

Anybody that thinks that they are as good a driver the day they pass their test and a year later are clearly delusional. It has more to do with experience than confidence.

These are as useless and as annoying as those 'Baby on Board' signs........... what is the point?When I see these 'P' plates, I don't think awwww let me give this new driver understanding and time, I just think oh FFS and get past as soon as possible.

yeah, these are as bad as L plates for getting bullied and rushed etc when driving!
#20
Pointless, if you have passed your test then you should be able to drive.

I don't see how sticking these on the back of your car makes any difference whatsoever if you make a mistake just do what everyone else does, hold your hand up and apologise and carry on.

I guess when I learnt to drive (at an age when I felt ready for it), I was at a stage in my life when I dont care about what other people thought of me, whether it was while driving or anywhere else, my response is the same "I dont give a toss" and I just keep on going regardless!

For me confidence makes a big difference, you cant really get that as a driver without spending a lot of hours behind the wheel. If you have all the confidence in the world after only 10 hours then there is going to be trouble. You truly know when you are ready for the road, dont bother taking the test till then!

Why, no-one really pays attention to them. By the time you pass your test you should be able to drive with some confidence and not be scared of other cars on the road. You obviously get better at driving with time but once you pass you shouldn't need a plate, you are just another driver and are apparently good enough having passed your test. These plates do nothing but say "I'm scared of driving, please don't come near me"

Hot deal though for people that still don't think they can drive after passing their test. Voted Hot...
#24
for people that still don't think they can drive after passing their test


Anyone who thinks they are a fully experienced driver after passing a test should have their licence revoked permanently. This is exactly the sort of arrogance that gets people killed, I've been driving thirty years and I'm still learning. Learning how to cope with impatient cretins who think they own the road and are immortal. Cars should be redesigned so that drivers sit forward of any crumple zone - make a mistake and you die. Harsh but fair.

As stated by another poster, these should be compulsory for everyone and anyone caught speeding or otherwise being an **** during a probationary period made to resit.

Please learn to read a post fully, you seem to be replying to me as if I myself claim that I was fully experienced as a new driver, of course I wasn't, I even say within my post that you get better with experience. It wasn't a long post but you seem to only have read the last line. There was no arrogance on my part of the type you suggested. I agree, if someone passes and thinks they've learned it all then they're a moron and likely to be a danger on the road, but equally I'd have the licence off of someone who despite learning and passing their test, showing that they are at least competent to drive on the road, still needs a comfort blanket of a plate to tell others drivers they have little confidence in their ability to drive.

Wished they did an O and a A plate so those who are little older amongst us could be marked out from the crowd. This would allow other road users to keep at least a tennis court distance away!!

(for those without a sense of humour, which seems to be reasonably common here, this is a joke!)

All women drivers should have these...

Other drivers take the **** if you use P plates. No-ones going to give you way if you use one of those.

If you've passed, then you're good enough. No need for these.

Should be 'W' in a warning triangle lol.

Also, a 'OAP' one for people over 70.

I also think these are pointless, I didn't have one when I passed, I also didn't drive like a pillock either, I used my common sense and drove properly, like I was taught. The quicker you are treated like everyone else on the road, the quicker you will become more confident to drive.

If people give you a wide berth all the time, you will fall to pieces when you get some arsey drive on your tail.

To tell the emergency services responding to a collision to look for a small body that might have been thrown somewhere inconspicuous if the adults in the car are unconscious/dead?

Who would be thoughtful enough to consider this situation and buy a baby on board sign, but not buy their child a car seat?

And I'm sure everyone takes this sign out of their car every time the child isn't in the car ??!!

So actually they could waste emergency services time who could be attending to someone else!

In an ideal world ... this law should be passed UK wide! Discouraging young drivers from buying souped-up turbo-hatches until they are able to handle them, and forcing them off the trunk roads (or look foolish) Until they have experience.

2 things will happen: Insurance premiums would come down & boy racers will stop congrigating in town centre car parks of an evening and annoying everyone.

However it will never happen because it detracts from work/life opportunities for younger people, although I can see why it was passed in NI due to the ant-social behavioural problems in that neck of the woods! :|

The driving test is far too easy. I was a very good driver when I passed according to my instructor, and I got through with only 4 minors. Despite that I would say I was not ready for the road until about 10 hours of driving on my own. If you aren't sure you're safe, drive with your parents still but don't drive with L/P plates. You don't get a real taste of the road that way.

Even if you've 'passed' please don't drive alone unless you feel you are ready.

45mph for a whole year thats astonishing

Mate you seen the price of insurance, i live in warwickshire when i was 17 the insurance for me on a group 2 corsa 1.0 52 reg was 2300 quid.

this thing was slower than a milk float and they still bent me over.

tbh now im 24 and have an S4 and a XFR so things even themselves out i guess.

I kind of agree. Driving on an 'L' plate quite normally and at the speed limit seems to encourage other "qualified" drivers to drive outrageously dangerously around you. I imagine the P plates will do the same.

How could you know that though? It only 'seems' that way because you are either a driving instructor in the middle of a lecture to a student, or somebody in the process of learning to drive which would inherintley make you hypersensitive to other road users. ~

You'd know if you're a passenger, i.e. the fully qualified driver who joins a learner everywhere they go.
