Earlier this week, it was revealed that a learner driver from Dorset has been handed a speeding ticket, after being caught speeding during a driving lesson.
The learner driver, who had only twelve hours experience behind the wheel was reportedly caught driving at 36 MPH within a 30 MPH area, and as such subsequently received a speeding ticket – offering her the change to attend a speed awareness course, at a cost of £110, or receive three penalty points on the yet obtained full driving licence.
Whilst the learner driver has opted to attend the speed awareness course; the news that a learner driver has been held accountable for speeding in a dual-controlled car, reiterates that the driver of a vehicle – whether a learner with a provisional licence, or a driver with a full driving licence, is held liable for breaking any traffic laws.
