Using a hand-held phone whilst driving is a huge safety risk and, from 1 March 2017, the penalty for drivers caught using mobile phones doubled.
Check your phone during a lesson and you now get 6 points and have to pay a £200 fine. Driving instructors can be removed from the ADI register so this could cost you your job.
To avoid temptation, THINK! is encouraging drivers to put their phone away in the glove compartment. THINK! have created stickers to remind drivers to put their phone away before driving.
