Passing your driving test and getting a drivers licence serves as a proof that you are competent and knowledgeable to drive a car and participate in the traffic. However, the driving test is fairly basic and does not provide much information when it comes to stressful situations, aggressive drivers and most importantly, car accidents. It will provide some theoretical background, but no instructor will ever be able to tell you about all possible situations you may encounter and train you to avoid all car accident risks. You will have to learn most about the actual dangers of car accidents from your experience on the road.
However, there is more to what you can do to ensure you become a safe and experienced driver. There are several training courses available to improve your driving skills in order to help you avoid getting involved in a car accident. You may try contacting Pass Plus scheme, The Institute of Advanced Motorists or The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. You may also consider contacting your insurance company to see whether they have a discount scheme for additional driving courses.
