This is a picture of a car specifically used for training the next generation of drivers of Leeds; you might have come across a similar looking one recently on your daily commute, trip to the shops, day out with the family.
It is identifiable by the clearly-visible big L in bright red.
Driving instructors like myself go through a very thorough training and qualification process and have to undergo regular assessments to enable to teach people the valuable skill of learning to drive and here in the UK; thanks in part to the skills and professionalism of our Approved Driving Instructors, we have one of the best rates of road safety in the world.
If you've ever been 'stuck' behind a learner driver then you must have been driving a car, bus or wagon, so congratulations on passing your test when you did and surely you must remember what it was like learning to drive.
This might be the very first time on a main road for this learner after they've spent a number of hours on very quiet side streets to prepare them for the roads of Leeds. It may be that they're practising a scenario that has in the past been difficult for them.
They may be getting back onto the road after an accident . They might even be on their test right now; you just don't know.
What you can be certain of though is that their instructor is coaching them to achieve the standards required of all drivers in UK law.
If you don't like 20mph speed limits, if you think red traffic lights are only advisory, if you think they should have given way to you despite the give way line applying to your vehicle then there is nothing that the instructor will do about it.
Beeping your horn, acting aggressively , driving erratically around the learner isn't helping them learn anything; other than how not to do things, and it CERTAINLY won't make the instructor or examiner say to their pupil, "actually, this guy's beeped at us so just put your foot down here and ignore those speed bumps". Please remember almost EVERY driver has good quality dash cams which will identify you and your vehicle which may be given to the Police.
