New learner driver rules

"Drivers should be held accountable – and the updates give better clarity. Debates can be expected on social media. Many drivers won’t be happy with the changes, but vulnerable road users must be at the centre of any updates."

Louis Rix, co-founder and COO of car finance platform byCarFinance 247
