DVSA launches the official DVSA guide to better driving

3 November 2015

The DVSA has launched a new book to help drivers understand how their attitude, mood, health and other human factors can affect the way they drive. The book has been produced by the DVSA in partnership with Dr Lisa Dorn, a leading psychologist in the field of driver behaviour.

The book aims to help drivers develop their skills in driving situations which may be unfamiliar such as motorways, complicated junctions or driving in bad weather. It has advice on how to recognise risks, avoid distractions and overcome anxieties to help drivers become safer and more confident.
