Book Description

18 Oct 2010
This essential reference guide is recognised as the industry standard driving manual, packed full of driving advice for learners, experienced motorists, professional drivers and instructors alike. This comprehensive guide provides all motorists with everything they need to know to help them learn and maintain safe driving skills and stay safe on the road for life. This new edition has been updated to include details on independent driving (which is being introduced into the practical driving test from October 2010), additional information on emergency diversions and travelling through road works, and advice on overtaking slow-moving vehicles, plus other key revisions. The Official DSA Guide to Driving - the essential skills, together with The Official Highway Code and Know Your Traffic Signs, provides the source material for learner car drivers and driving instructor theory tests, being referenced throughout the latest official DSA theory test titles for car drivers. It is strongly recommended that you study from these source materials, as well as products containing the theory test questions themselves, to prepare fully for your tests.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% Recommended for all learner drivers 5 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
My driving instructor recommended that I bought this book, he said that it was one of if not the best book for advice and information about driving. Although it is called 'The Essential Skills' it provides more than the essentials and helps you learn the rules of the road, how you should approach driving and also tips to prevent incidents. It helped me to visualise what I should do, how, where and when I should do them without being in an actual car. 100% recommended to all learner drivers and even mature drivers.

I am currently learning to drive and this book was recommended by my instructor and I must say it has improved not only my driving but exstensive knowledge for the theory as well. I can now get at least 48/50 when practising for my test! I would recommended this to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, great seller 23 Jun 2011
By Steve
Format:Paperback
Was recommended this by my driving instructor so thought I'd get it. As I've been out on a number of lessons I know a lot of what's in the book but quite a bit of what's in it is new to me. A great book for all drivers, not just learners. Top service from the seller also. Much appreciated.
