      You feel so helpless, and the worst thing of all is that you will not see the end of it, and when it does, you pray this will never happen to you again.

If you get six points within two years of passing your test, your licence will be revoked and you will need to re-sit the test. Remember to look first to the right when crossing the road and drivers of left-hand cars should make sure that headlights are dipped to the left when driving at night. However, faster drivers may legally pass in the slower lanes if conditions allow by CVC
