Learner Drivers and the Law.
Let's take a look at the law for learner drivers under the age of 17 and learner drivers in general.
As stated above you may drive at any age on 'private land' but we would advise you to make sure you can reach the controls and are properly supervised for your own safety. Private land means not the public highway nor anywhere the public has general access. Car parks cannot be used unless they have proper barriers, are closed to the public and display signs saying that they are not subject to road traffic regulations. The same applies to disused airfields and so called Private Industrial estates. If you are in any doubt DO NOT DRIVE! It is you taking the risk and if the police stop you it is always the driver who is responsible.
Before you drive on the road:
N.B. L plates need to be a specific size and failure to comply may result in being charged with not driving in accordance with your licence and subsequently no insurance as well.

and get your freedom...
It is of the utmost importance that you realise that in all cases the legal responsibility lies with the driver of the vehicle, it is you who must make sure that the car you are driving is legal, that all the tyres have sufficient tread, the lights are working and the vehicle is insured. If you were to break the law during your lesson by speeding or running a red light for instance it is you as the driver of the vehicle who would receive the penalty
(though your supervising driver may also receive a fine).
Please note for moped riders: It seems to be quite a common occurrence at the moment for moped riders to be stopped by the police for having a cut down L plate and in the majority of cases they have received 3 points and a fine, in some cases they have also had their mopeds impounded!! Please be aware of your responsibilities ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of the Law!!
