Getting experience of driving at night time is considered to be particularly important for young drivers, as many accidents involving this demographic happen after dark. This should be done through lessons with your driving instructor as part of your driving lessons.
With our instructors, DEC can offer you driving lessons in the night time, as many drivers find that they are not as confident as they could be in the dark after having passed their driving test and gaining their full driving licence, as they did not get enough practice beforehand.
When it comes to driving in the dark, certain rules apply. These include:
- Using your headlights in failing light and when darkness has fallen
- Making sure that your sidelights and rear registration plate lights are on
- Using dipped headlights in built-up areas
- Not wearing tinted glasses or lenses while driving in the dark, as these can restrict your vision
