    Descriptive info: Driving Lessons.. Refresher Driving Lessons.. 03.. March.. 2012.. Refresher Driving Lessons.. The R.. has recently encouraged fully licensed drivers who are unsure about roundabouts and motorway driving to seek out a driving instructor for some.. refresher driving lessons.. I believe this is certainly a good idea for those who feel they may need it and one or two hour’s tuition should be adequate for most people.. The idea of refresher driving lessons is not a new one.. In Ireland motoring offences occur regularly, whether its drink driving, speeding, driving without evidence of insurance or motor tax, driving without due care and attention, driving without a seatbelt or driving while holding a mobile telephone.. If you are convicted of a motoring offence you can be disqualified from driving (a minimum of three years) or have an endorsement imposed on your driving licence.. If you  ...   this makes perfect common sense.. We need to improve the technique and attitude of drivers today and refresher lessons might go some way to helping this.. Categories:.. Comments (0)..

    Descriptive info: Left hand side of the road.. 23.. September.. 2011.. Left hand side of the road.. Ever wondered why do we drive on the left hand side of the road?.. About 25% of the world's countries drive in the left hand side of the road, and the countries that do are mostly old British colonies.. In the past, almost everybody travelled by horse on the left side of the road as it made more sense to society at the time.. For example most people are right-handed, therefore swordsmen preferred to keep to the left in order to have their right arm nearer to an opponent.. Also, a right-handed person finds it easier to mount a horse from the left side of the horse especially if carrying a sword.. It is also safer to mount and dismount at the inside of the road, rather than in the middle of traffic, so if one dismounts on the left, then the horse should be ridden on the left side of the road so as to not dismount in the middle of "traffic"..  ...   wanted everybody to pass on the left so he could make sure he kept clear of the oncoming wagon's wheels.. Therefore the driver kept to the right side of the road.. In Europe, the French Revolution of 1789 had a major impact on which side of the road we drive on.. Before the Revolution, the aristocracy travelled on the left of the road, forcing the peasantry over to the right, but after the storming of the Bastille and the subsequent events, aristocrats preferred to keep a low profile and joined the peasants on the right.. Later, Napoleon's conquests spread the new rightism throughout Europe.. In the early years of English colonisation of North America, English driving customs were followed and the colonies drove on the left.. However, after gaining independence from England to break links with British rule they gradually changed to right-hand driving.. Only four European countries still drive on the left: the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta.. Now you know why you do your driving lessons on the left hand side of the road :)..
