If you drive you need to read this
on 9 November 2002
This book is what every new driver should get along with the highway code. sadly this doesn't happen, so whether you have been driving for one day or thirty years you should read this.
The book is very well laid out and of the highest quality. Clear concise it is a very good example of HM Govt. publishing at its best. All points are clearly illustrated with diagrams, which interestingly often show a white car as the protagnist.
I am a little worried though at the thought that more than 99% of drivers have never even heard of this book. You won't learn any dark secrets, it will seem obvious when you read it like all the best advice. You will learn how to be a safe yet fast driver. How to handle your car and avoid accidents no matter what other drivers are up to.
Don't expect a potted road rally course or techniques of police pursuit driving. This is about road driving safely and quickly. Essential reading if you are going for an advanced driver rating or not.
In short: if you drive - read this
