    Pulled over by the police

    I've only been pulled twice so far: 1st 'cause I was leaving a bar at 11pm (I worked there) and they were having a crackdown on drink drivers, so I wasn't bothered 2nd 'cause I only had 1 out of 3 rear brake lights working, he just told me to get it fixed ASAP

    Learners on Motorways

    Is it not to do with people assuming it's safer in the middle lane? As in there's a bigger margin for error? Still does my nut in though

    How many lessons to learn to drive

    had about 15 'proper' lessons, but i failed my test first time, totally my fault. I wasn't thinking straight, got onto a dual-carriageway and assumed 70 mph speed limit. it was 50 mph. Quite a few of my friends did the same thing :s

    Learners on Motorways

    Cheap car insurance with a catch

    I only mean that it's a good idea for the first couple of years, once the premiums plateau then it's not necessary anymore

    Cheap car insurance with a catch

    I think it's a great idea! I only passed my test a couple of years ago and 'cause I'm young, therefore, I'm a bad driver, which I'm not. For my first year, on a 1L 1999 Nissan Micra I paid about £3000 for a years insurance!! Anything that will help young, genuinely good drivers lower their...

    A3 workhorse

    Try taking out all the stuff you don't need. It'll speed up you're acceleration and increase MPG so it's win/win!! :D:D

    Your driving weakspots

    When on long motorway drives I tend to zone out and just go into automatic mode. Kinda worries me sometimes 'cause I can go for half an hour without concentrating at all! :blink:

    What's the worst car you've ever owned and why?

    For me it's the Nissan Micra 1.0 T reg. I realise that i don't have a huge car history...actually it's just the micra and my current fabia :blink: The gearbox on the micra was awful, if you ever went for 3rd you had to cross your fingers and hope for t'best! So how about you??
