Why would anyone take an extra driving course before going out in traffic? How about passing a theory test Edinburgh? The lack of experience is one of the main reasons. Basically, anyone can pass a classic driving test. You have to study a little, pass a simple test, then drive for a few minutes. What can be easier than that? However, most people fail to realize that you simply cannot buy experience. Experience is something you gain with time. When your instructor mostly trains you around empty streets, chances are you will have no clue what to do in critical situations in traffic.
