These come in many forms, some are self-imposed, and some are outside our control. As a learner increases their skills some distractions need to be introduced. Surely, not you might say? Yes, it is no good there being complete silence in the car up to the driving test and then, turning the radio on full blast once your on your own the first time
Mobile phones, are of course an exception to allowable distractions, GPS’s should be set before taking off not while travelling. Ipods in your ear are another no, no.
So, what are allowable distractions? The radio and/or music playing, and of course, talking. Remember though, that too much noise and you might not hear the emergency services sirens.
At all times your responsibility is to be always aware of what is going on around you, for your life, your passengers lives and for all other road users including people.
