Did You Know This?

Many drivers do not know that texting from the passenger seat, as a supervisor to a learner driver, could cost you six penalty points on your licence and a hefty fine.

RAC reports:

Motorists who are supervising learner drivers could find themselves lumbered with fines of £200 and six penalty points if caught using a mobile phone in the passenger seat.

Supervising drivers can also be penalised if found over the drink-driving limit while accompanying a learner.

According to UK driving law, supervising a learner gives the accompanying driver the same legal responsibilities as if they were driving the vehicle themselves.

This means that failing to comply with road traffic laws such as alcohol limits and using mobile devices, could hold the same legal penalties.
