There’s always a certain amount of competition between drivers who have yet to pass their practical driving tests. Who’ll succeed first? Who’ll have the fewest minors?

However, being competitive about passing the practical might not be the best of ideas. Rushing into taking the practical can end up costing a lot of money if a motorist hasn’t had enough lessons and just isn’t ready to pass yet.

Furthermore, failing a practical test can be quite disheartening, and possibly make the driver question whether they’ll ever take to the roads unaccompanied.

Thankfully, most driving instructors will ‘put the brakes’ on any foolish ideas their new drivers might have about taking their test too early.

Before they’ve been fully prepared for every foreseeable event which could take place during their test and after receiving their full driving licence, the most important thing is to learn at their own pace and not be pressured into showing their skills to an examiner.


A good competition

One thing it doesn’t hurt to be competitive about though, is how safely a motorist can drive and how good a car insurance quote they can find.

Of course, drivers should not sacrifice comprehensive cover purely to lower the cost of their insurance. For some individuals, third party cover, or third party fire and theft insurance is the right way to go – but other motorists might regret not receiving quotes for comprehensive insurance.

There is a way of receiving a good quote without sacrificing the amount of cover a driver purchases – telematics insurance.


Benefits of telematics insurance

With a telematics insurance policy, drivers can prove to the insurers (and any doubting parents) that they are safe and considerate motorists.

As well as being able to view how well they are driving via their Portal, if they have proved themselves low-risk drivers upon renewal, they are likely to receive a great quote which reflects their positive driving habits.
