I remember when I passed my driving test aged 17 how unbelievably excited I was about my having the independence that comes with being able to drive. I was lucky enough to have a car to share with my sister and I was so proud of my cute little mini metro. Nowadays, most young drivers wouldn’t be seen dead in what I was proudly driving around in but the vanity that goes with having a “pimped up ride” can result in a new driver’s licence being revoked if you’re not careful!
There are lots of ways in which you can modify your car. Some are legal. Some are not. Most offences relating to the vehicle modification are punishable by fine only but there are some offences for which you could receive penalty points which, as a new driver you would want to avoid as otherwise you may have to re-sit your test all over again…and a pimped car looks far less cool with “L” plates on it!
