I did a 3-day first aid course and was taught the basics of first aid. If I try to do CPR on someone, but they die anyway, I won't be held accountable. However, if I try to do brain surgery, which I'm not trained for and they die, well, I was acting far beyond my training and would be negligent to have tried brain surgery at all. I would be held accountable.

Similarly, learner drivers are required to be accompanied by trained drivers. If they aren't accompanied, they are acting beyond their training and need to be held accountable.

Knowing how to drive properly in poor conditions is an important part of learning to drive.

Well the Audi that overtook me seemed ok, yes I was driving for conditions but I will admit and fully fully back the major contribution was cheap a#s Chinese Dutch finders.

I've driven in much much worse conditions faster then I was but also I found the car itself at the time was a sh1te handling car. Vectra 1.6 big standard.

Yes, I had assumed that but which part? Can't understand where you'd draw the conclusion from.

So you were aware of your cars poor handling and rightly couldn’t compare it with the Audi’s
