We’ve parted with our hard earned cash in exchange for various makes and models that caught our eye but at a certain point simply owning a vehicle wasn’t enough, we also wanted to change their appearance and indeed how they performed as well. Read the rest of this entry

On March 16th the practical driving test celebrated its 80th birthday and so we thought it would be a nice idea to look back at how the driving test has changed over the years.

The Road Traffic Act was implemented in 1934 and it was the introduction of this Act that led to the compulsory driving test in June 1935. Prior to this, driving tests were voluntary, as they didn’t think they would be able to cope with demand. Driving tests cost just 7 shillings and sixpence or 38p in today’s money and Mr J Beene is the man who goes down in history as being the first person to pass their driving test on March 16th all those years ago!

Driving test centres did not exist back in the early years and so test candidates would actually start their driving tests from public locations such as railway stations. Now, of course, there are designated driving test centres where driving instructors or family members can wait until the candidate has returned from test, but interestingly trials are under way to see whether driving tests could start again from public places. If successful, this would mean that more tests could start at the same time, as they wouldn’t be restricted on parking space at the test centre. It could even signal the end of the driving test centre in an attempt to cut costs. Read the rest of this entry

So you love your car and you love driving it. You lovingly maintain and wash your car and make it the best it can be. What a shame then that we have to drive around with an anonymous and meaningless ‘registration number’. Well, not in the UK. There has been a healthy market for ‘personalised or private number plates‘ for many decades. In some ways, it is one of the most special aftermarket enhancements you can make to a vehicle. You can buy a number plate that means something to YOU. Read the rest of this entry
