Pass Plates

By Lewis on 18th February 2016 - View Comments

Congratulations, you’ve passed! Well, hopefully you have if your reading this and this now makes you a newly qualified driver. So the question is, to P or not to P…

Most of you have probably seen the bright green ‘P’ plate. Some of you may wonder what it is, why it’s used and whether there’s a need for it so we thought we’d explain to help you out.

What is it?

You can display green ‘probationary’ P plates to show that you’ve just passed your driving test. You don’t have to display them. You can leave them on your vehicle for as long as you like

What are the benefits?

  • People know you are a recently qualified driver with little experience and therefore give you extra space
  • Reassures you as people know you are inexperienced

Are there any drawbacks?

  • Some drivers won’t respect the fact your an inexperienced driver
  • It may cause certain people to treat you in an unfair way
