Convicted Driver / Drivers with Accidents - Learners urged to invest in tuition

Learners urged to invest in tuition

Convicted driver car insurance news: Mercedes-Benz World has found 19 per cent of drivers questioned experienced a crash during their first year of driving.

Furthermore, learners who have shunned professional lessons in favour of free sessions from parents are slightly more likely to have an accident – which is likely to push up insurance premiums.

The research suggests people who learn from family and friends may also be in danger of having an accident during lessons, as 20 per cent of those said they had an argument with their amateur teacher.

Managing director of Mercedes-Benz World Peter O’Halloran said experienced driving instructors are more able to deliver advice to ensure "learners perform to the best of their ability when they get behind the wheel".

"As our family driving challenge shows, parents aren't always best equipped for teaching their children to drive," he added.

This week the Driving Standards Agency announced changes to the test for bus, lorry and coach drivers.

From performance, prestige and modified cars to classic and imported vehicles, vans, motorcycles and scooters, Performance Direct provides value for money insurance cover, often when other companies can't help.
