British travellers who are worried about hitting the highway on foreign holidays can hone their skills with special lessons
Motorists nervous about driving on the ‘wrong side of the road’ during foreign holidays can attend special lessons.
The first ever driving school for motoring on the right has been set up by travel search site ‘Skyscanner’, after research it carried out revealed more than a quarter (27%) of UK motorists are afraid of taking a car out on the other side of the carriageway.
It’s teamed up with expert driving instructors to offer free classes to drivers who want to sharpen their skills for tackling roads in the likes of Europe and the USA this summer.
Skyscanner’s study also found just over a third (36%) of British travellers admit they don’t research driving laws before driving abroad and 24% would prefer their partners to do all the driving.
A spokeswoman said:
“With two-thirds of the world’s countries driving on the right-hand side of the road we wanted to give British holidaymakers the confidence they need to drive overseas.”
