Hi Everyone

I am interested in any thoughts and opinions of the introduction of satnav into the UK driving test.

I'm sure this will not be much of an issue for you and in any case you are satnav savvy.

I do often see signs of over complacency and over belief in satnav. It's like a 'fact' that you have pinpoint accuracy everywhere in the world. Just follow instructions and you can't go wrong!

I wonder how much failure rates will increase.

Is this view shared?

What a benefit this forum would be to learner drivers.

Many thanks and cheers

Personally I can't see the use of a Sat nav will improve the standard of UK driving. Laughing

Although there may be more learner drivers swamped in rivers and stuck down narrow country lanes Rolling Eyes
