New drivers urged to put a plus in their pass this winter
With the most common season for motoring accidents now here, the Driving Standards Agency is advising newly-qualified motorists to take a course aimed at producing safer drivers, helping reduce road deaths and injuries in the process.
One of the government's new proposals on speeding is an automatic 6-point penalty for a driver caught exceeding the posted speed limit by 20 miles an hour or more.
The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) is carrying out a survey to find out what people think about Despatch, DSA’s external magazine issued to road safety professionals.

Reversing to be dropped from L-test?
Reversing around a corner and three-point turns could be axed from the driving test - to make it harder for novice drivers to pass.
Under the Conservative Party plans, learner drivers would still have to prove they are capable of performing the manoeuvres with their instructor - before taking the test.
The 10 minutes saved by dropping these elements of the test would be dedicated to spending more time assessing a candidate's ability in traffic.
The Tory initiative was announced as the Government holds a consultation on a reform of the driving test.

Illegal Driving Instructor Sentenced
The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) carried out an investigation which led to illegal driver instructor Harjit Singh Bhogal receiving a suspended prison sentence.
The investigation was made possible thanks to tip-offs from Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) and members of the general public.
Bhogal, 61, from Slough, held entitlement to provide tuition as an ADI until being struck off the Register in 2003 following his conviction for Indecent Assault on a female learner driver. The DSA received information to suggest that, despite his removal from the register, Bhogal continued to provide illegal instruction on a regular basis.
The DSA launched an investigation which resulted in Bhogal being charged with four counts of fraud by misrepresentation. The defendant denied all charges but was found guilty in October after 27 minutes’ deliberation by a jury. More
