Learner driver publication features real photos and events
Driving instructor Andy Hall has published a book, Hazard Ahead, using real photos of events and junction, to help prepare learner drivers for the road.
He says the book, which will also be made available in CD format, has had a favourable response from the DSA, Driving Instructors Association (DIA) and the Association of Industrial Road Safety Officers (AIRSO).
Andy Hall says: “It has taken me around four years to compile 400 pictures of actual events on the roads, grouped into subjects that instructors teach in a general drive situation - ranging from meeting traffic to all weather driving.
”The book could be used in schools as part of the core curriculum and driving schools could also benefit from an additional teaching aid.”
