QuoteMeToday Examine Driving Test Changes and Driving School Insurance

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 16, 2012) - Highly experienced insurance brokers, QuoteMeToday, have studied the changes to the UK driving test and are taking a balanced viewpoint on the matter. With even more changes planned to prevent immigrants from taking tests in their native language - there is a lot for the brokers to digest.

QuoteMeToday have been sourcing driving school insurance on behalf of instructors for years - professionally dealing with multiple accident claims along the way. They know the dangers of the road inside-out and with the driving test toughening up, QuoteMeToday are hoping it will at least have a positive impact on crash rates.

No longer will answers to the driving theory test be published in a Driving Standards Agency book. Students will need to learn the Highway Code themselves and apply 'real' knowledge instead of simple memory to get through the exam. QuoteMeToday are looking at the reasons for change from a neutral perspective.

A spokesperson for the brokers commented:

'Not all students revise for their theory test by just memorising text. A lot of learners gain invaluable theory insight from their instructors during live lessons. Still, a tougher test should hypothetically result in safer roads, which is great news for everybody.'

Meanwhile, further changes are planned to put the blocks on foreign language examinations. Ministers are worried that some immigrants will cheat by get a helping hand from translators during the theory exam - the concern comes after over 700 licenses were invalidated in the last two years, as a result of DSA investigations into rogue translators.

Ministers are doubly concerned about the risk of non-English speaking drivers because of their potential inability to read text-based road signs. QuoteMeToday are again neutral on this point and, instead, are focusing their energies on their outstanding service to the driving instructors.

QuoteMeToday are experts when it comes to negotiating driving instructors insurance through their network of insurance contacts. They promote the idea that all tutors should be covered with specialist insurance packages because of their vehicle's increased vulnerability to minor accidents as learners take to the wheel.
