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!

Excellent book.
I'm just learning how to drive and I find this book to be an excellent source of information for in between the lessons. Whether you need some more in depth info, or just a quick refresher on how to start a car (like I do, hah...) this book covers it. There's a lot of diagrams and pictures, a lot of which are the same as the ones my instructor is showing me. This really helps to connect the information from experience and what you read as well.
There are places where I wish the book went into more detail, however those fragments I can easily google and the book does help to pinpoint those, so I can't really call it a con.
I highly recommend it to anyone learning to drive, or to those who haven't had the chance to drive in a long time and want to get back into the saddle :)

Bought this to back up driving lessons (I also bought the older edition which was recommended in reviews because it used diagrams rather than photos) .The text is clear and easy to follow and has been updated but I like the diagrams in the older edition too. I find the index handy. A good reference book with plenty of information on driving techniques. Previously I had bought the 'AA Practical Test' and the 'BSM Practical Test for Car Drivers' which, disappointedly, turned out to be identical. I did not like the question and multi choice answer style and, although answers are given, I could not always think of the word required before looking in the back at the start.

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.
