For drivers who have just recently Passed their test to display (if they want to - it's not the law - yet!)

Best of luck! Just remember though - you will learn most about driving AFTER you've passed your test!

Alternatively, young drivers can save 59p by not learning to drive - and in the process making the roads safer for the rest of us.

Alternatively, you could take your age divide it by 2 times it by 4 now take away the twice the original number and that's how many ducks i give about your post.

Whereas I am particularly concerned about yours

Can you return the P plates for a refund if you dont pass your test?

I remember when i was learning to drive someone stole my L plates X)

This annoys me, if someone feels they need to display a P on their car they obviously haven't learned to drive properly and shouldn't have a licence until they are confident and safe on the road.

Were you confident and safe on the road the day after you passed your test?

I bet you think you were, it's the others isn't it

Good for placing on badly parked vehicles

I bought these the other day. Went on a drive and lost my Ps. The magnet isn't very strong as you'd expect for 59p.

I put the Ps on to help with the confidence. I don't know why but it made me feel better. It doesn't mean I'm not a good driver, it just shows I'm not experienced yet.

Got mine from Home Bargains , - had the P plate on for 2 months. Great deal but has kind of already been posted and was cheaper.

The fully magnetic ones are better, but cost a bit more.

Oh dear!

When I passed my test I found it much safer to use the L plates or no plates then the P plates.
Seriously if you pass your test either skip straight to no L/P plates or keep the L plates for a few days.
P plates seem to be like a red rag to a bull, they expect you to know everything, drive without a single slip up and given them right of way (even if it isn't theirs). All the time the moment you make a single slipup they will honk, shout and do a whole host of nasties.

On the topic of this deal its great. The magnetic plates, even the cheap ons, are nice they are easy to remove and store and you can hot swap them (great if its a shared car your learning in).

I had some magnetic plates when I was learning to drive, but they flew off the car when I got above 50.

Also it is actually an offence to display L plates when you're not a learner, so be warned.

It's not an actual offence, the official wording is 'should' and not 'must' be removed when not being driven by a learner.

Or possibly they are nervous driving for the first time on their own without an instructor.

these are the mag strip ones which are useless

you'll be replacing them every time you get on a dual carriageway

Not a bad price!

Window cling or fully magnetic are much better.

Bought these for a £1.00 .blew off 5 minutes down the road.magnetic strips were too small.Then bought a pair from Asda ,they cost £2.50,the magnetic strips were twice the size and thickness.Been using these several months now ,no problems.

Here in NI it's compulsory to display R (restricted) plates for a year after passing your test. You're also restricted to a top speed of 45mph, which is dangerous on motorways imo

I'd agree. Dangerous place, Northern Ireland

If the letter P stuck on a car annoys you then I expect most things in life get you worked up.

Alternatively you could keep of the roads and make it a safer place for learners,as the drivers who think they are better than everyone else are often the most dangerous themselves

Anybody seen the green L's?
I don't understand why people use those when they've passed?

Couldn't agree more, if you feel the need to warn other drivers you're new then you shouldn't be driving in the first place to be honest, but hey, just my opinion, I'm sure others think quite the opposite! Aside from that, it's a good deal!

32yrs old - driving daily for 12 years - 0 accidents/fines (so far...) No P used!

It really annoys me when people say that. Not ALL young drivers are bad drivers. I'm 25. Been driving 6 years, 6 years NCB, 0 points... and im male.

The worst drivers on the road from what ive personally have seen are women. I know theyve had cheaper insurance for years blaa blaa blaa but its simple. They create accidents, men have no choice but to hit them. Mainly in my experience from being too busy fixing makeup in the mirror, hesitating at every junction and ive even had one woman slam on at a green light, mistaking the red light at a right turn junction as hers, as i had my baby son in the back i wasnt best pleased.

Also men aged 40+ plus who think they own the road, forget where their indicaters are and dont give way, make loads of mistakes yet dont like been criticized. Their driving tbh is worse than young lads (except the chavvy ones with high performance vehicles and/or mates in the back.)

Its a shame insurance isnt assessed individually. Not all yound lads are morons, neither are all women, white van drivers etc

I think that young drivers should pay higher insurance for first year, then receive cashback if they dont have an accident to put towards and reduce the next years insurance and so on and so forth. Anyone having accidents due to speeding and driving without due care should have insurance doubled. This is a sure way to sort the idiots on the roads out and make driving more affordable for all drivers. As a young driver myself i need my car to get to work, without it im limited to where i can work.

Rant over.....

Renewals from the same company maybe. You take your NCB and use it to get the best quote from another company. If you don't believe they work, get an online quote with none and then requote increasing the NCB.
Take it from someone who's first year was £1530, now I have 9 years NCB and pay £243!

Be fair -there's a very clear warning on their car: it says 'BMW' or 'AUDI'

PS I think your insurance 'cashback' idea is a good one: why not send it to an insurer? They're all looking for a point of difference to bring in business.
