Driving Lessons – Independent Driving In The Driving Test
The one flaw there used to be with the test was the fact it did not properly prepare you for driving on your own once passed. Being able to drive well whilst being clearly directed all the time is one thing, but it is quite another when you are also having to concentrate on finding your way to somewhere.
Just like when you are beginning your lessons, you may be great at something you have just learnt and had a good amount of practice at. But then a new procedure or routine is introduced which will then require most of your attention and the thing you were good at before starts to fail a little because you haven’t got as much time to think about it anymore. It then takes a little time to be able to do both without thinking about it.
Its the same with the independent driving. Its designed to make sure you can think about where you are going, looking for sign posts or particular roads, and still be able to correctly check your mirrors and get into the correct position or lane safely without impeding any …
Feature: Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Goes Into Production!
Growing up, I didn’t hang posters of the Backstreet Boys, Leonardo DiCaprio or 2pac. My room was adorned with four posters that I still remember vividly. The Lamborghini Countach, Ferrari Testarossa, Nissan Skyline R34 and the McLaren F1, you know, the orange one with the wooded backdrop that we are probably all too familiar with. It’s been many years since I’ve truly fantasized about owning one of those rare exotics, even though by today’s standards they would be considered fairly “cheap” relative to their original MSRPs. So what would I hang on my wall right now? It wouldn’t be the Bugatti Veyron – that would be almost too predictable, nor would it be the Mercedes-Benz SLS – that would be too clich. The Nissan GTR would be a good option but then that would be too practical. What car could I hang up today that I know would be cutthroat, nosebleedingly awesome like the cars of my youth? I haven’t been able to find a car for years, until now: The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was originally revealed as only a technological showcase concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. …
BMW Electric Cars
BMW has long been a leader when it comes to producing high-quality, technologically advanced cars, so it is no wonder that BMW owners have been waiting (sometimes rather impatiently) for a BMW electric car. BMW has researched electric cars for decades, but, like other companies, never made any real strides in the area because of all the politics around the gasoline/electric debate.
For a long time, American emission and MPG guidelines were stalled. Companies were allowed to continue to produce cars with low-MPR vehicles while other countries made amazing gains in that area. Recently, though, new efforts have been made to reduce the carbon footprints of American vehicles (meaning vehicles driven in America, not necessary produced there). Now the Environmental Protection Agency is placing new, stringent regulations in place that force companies to double their fuel economy within a set period of time. As a result, companies are finally producing environmentally friendly cars that do not pollute the air with their emissions.
Very recently, in 2011, BMW made a definite public commitment to finally produce and release an all-electric car, the ActiveE. This is considered a gamble by some because the company is well known for its …
Wedding Cars for Hire – How to Choose Yours
There are plenty of companies out there which offer wedding cars for hire but you need to make sure that they have exactly what you want before you make a commitment. When you’re choosing your wedding cars for hire, there are a few important points that you need to consider before you finalise your decision.
Vintage or Modern: Classic wedding cars include Rolls Royce, Jaguar, Daimler and Bentley which really are timeless. Vintage wedding cars come in a wide range such as a 1960s Princess, a Beauford, a Regent Convertible, Regal Landaulette or a Fleur de Lys. If you want to take advantage of an open-topped vintage car, do consider what the weather might be like on your wedding day.
Of course you can be ultra modern and go for an upmarket sports car such as Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Ferrari or Porsche or for something larger, a Hummer or Range Rover.Chauffeur-driven or drive yourself: If you’re having a traditional wedding with classic or vintage wedding cars, with the bride and her father arriving together then chauffeur-driven is fitting, it’s also useful if parking or waiting is a problem near the wedding …
