Learner Drivers Liverpool to help Save Lives

 

Learner drivers Liverpool applying online for a driving licence will now be required to answer a question regarding organ donation.

Officials are aiming to double the number of donors on the NHS register, which currently stands at just 29% of the population.

Under the DVLA’s current system, applicants can ignore a question on donation when applying for a driving licence.

But in future learner drivers will have to state if they want to sign up immediately or decide at a later date.

The NHS says 90% of people are interested in giving organs in the event of their death but few take the opportunity to do so.

Around 8,000 people in the UK are currently waiting for a transplant.

Public health minister Anne Milton said: “Being an organ donor is a truly selfless act and a life saving gift to someone in need.

“We want to make it easier for people to sign up to the Organ Donor Register when they apply for their driving licence and encourage everyone to discuss their organ donation wishes with their loved ones.”

Chris Rudge, NHS transplantation clinical director, told Sky News: “There’s no compulsion about the answer. It’s ‘yes, I’d like to put my name on the organ donor register or not today thank you or I’m already on it’.

“By being required to provide at least an answer I hope this will encourage people to actually do what they know they’ve been meaning to do but just haven’t got round to doing.”

Some Driving Schools on Merseyside have an advertising campaign at the moment suggesting that other schools keep pupils having lessons for too long before letting them take a test.

The report below would suggest that quite the opposite is the case. Certainly as far as Alto School of Motoring is concerned, our pass rate is more than 15 per cent higher than the national average.

Remember that your driving lessons should be designed to teach you to drive safely rather than pass the very basic driving test. If you can drive safely ,independently then you will pass your test !! . . . . . .

 

More than 300 learner drivers and examiners were injured during driving tests in Britain last year, figures reveal.

Five examiners suffered physical attacks and 209 reported being verbally abused as stress got the better of candidates, according to Driving Standards Agency statistics obtained by windscreen repair firm Autoglass.

The figures, released in response to a freedom of information request, also show that nervous or unprepared learner drivers committed more than a million dangerous or serious faults during car practical driving tests.

In 2010 the Driving Standards Agency recorded 147 major injuries to the examiner or candidate which required medical attention from a GP or at hospital.

There were a further 192 minor injuries where the victims received basic first aid, treated themselves or did not need treatment.

Learner drivers were most likely to fail the test for poor observation at junctions (65,988 dangerous and 296,341 serious faults recorded) or bad use of mirrors (32,827 dangerous and 172,945 serious faults).

Driving Standards Agency figures show 1,605,599 practical driving tests were taken in England, Wales and Scotland in 2010-11, of which 744,044 were passed, a success rate of 46.3%.

Autoglass managing director Matthew Mycock said: “Driving tests can be stressful occasions but these figures really are quite alarming. They beg the very real question of how many candidates are being entered before they are fully prepared.

“Of course people are going to make mistakes during the course of a test. But it is worrying that so many dangerous or serious errors are happening, not only from the point of view of candidates and examiners but also other road users and pedestrians.”
