    You might want to ask him to sit in the back before you give yourself a hernia?

    No that isn't true unless you’re a driving instructor as they have the insurance on them for everyone that drives the car. The leaner driver will need to be insured as a learner not the teacher otherwise you’ll get pulled and points for driving with no insurance.

    Exactly the same as normal driving but you need a supervisor that’s 21+ and has a had the license for 3 years, insurance for your self and L plates.

    Yea,the learner needs to be insured.

    I had to get insured when i wanted to drive my own car to work with my dad in it next to me. as i had the car few months before doing me test.

    I know the learner needs to be insured but you are prob right im, don't know why but im thinking of if you as the supervisor have had a drink and are over the limit you can technically be done for drink driving or being in charge of a learner driver whilst unfit through drink, i know there is some stuff the supervising driver cops if for if caught, I did fail my criminal law exam 1st time round LOL (thank God im not a crim solicitor lol).

    The supervising driver basically has to obey all rules he/her would have to if he was driving the car him/herself.

    no drink etc etc all that rubbish.

    as you have to be aware of everything if not more aware than the learner.
    As you are the experience driver.
