You and your Licence
As a driver you are responsible for ensuring that the vehicle you are using is legal and that all of the documents are available. Make sure that documents with a time limit are still valid, such as the road tax. Find out what you are responsible for by clicking this link.
Road accidents and anti-social driving happens when road rules are broken. You, as a driver, are responsible to know the rules, follow them and to keep their knowledge up-to-date. The rules are published in the Highway Code, available at most bookshops. You can also buy it online or view online free of charge here.
