Zapping The Blogauto Suzuki Vitara review
It is indeed a rumor that comes up regularly: the State and Road Safety could impose a passage of the regular Code to keep a license valid. The goal would be to remind drivers of the correct rules, but also to update them with modified or new rules such as the safety corridor, etc. With more and more cyclists on the roads, some forget the basic rules overtaking in complete safety (1m minimum in town and 1.50m outside built-up areas).
A healthy upgrade
But, why wait for the blow? Especially since it is everyone’s responsibility to know the law and therefore the highway code, right? In addition, the excuse of the lack of time to go and revise at the driving school is invalid since it can be done via an online code site.
With the internet and these course services Traffic Lawswe can revise at your own pace, in the evening for example or on weekends, on public transport, etc. In short, we lose less time than physically going to a driving school room for the lesson and the test. Be careful, not all sites are equal and you have to pay attention to the services provided. Some will, for example, have real distance learning courses with a professional. Also look the success rate of the site, it is often the pledge of an effective and quality teaching.
Of course, this advice is valid for those who want to pass the highway code for a license. But, those who already have the license can very well register for to level up. Prices are low compared to a classic driving school package. The sites also offer mock exams. A good test to know if you would still get your code. We do not suspect bad habits that we adopt while driving on a daily basis.
For or against an exam to renew your license?
The law states that a successful highway code exam is valid for 5 years or 5 attempts to pass license (first of the two expired terms). This interval of five years seems a good compromise for upgrading, even if there is no legal need to repeat it.
Since 2013 in France, the credit card format driving license is valid for 15 years. But be careful, it is only the administrative document that has this validity limit. To renew it, a simple administrative procedure enough for now. No driving test, highway code or even medical check-up to pass. Maybe it will come, that’s the meaning of the story. But for the moment in France, the license A or B remains valid for lifeprovided that you do not lose your 12 points or that you do not commit a traffic offense.
What if we took regular highway code lessons on our own initiative? This allows you to get up to speed with new rules, or forgotten rules.
The State does not force us – yet – to have a regular code passage, but an online site can be the right solution to review regularly.
