08/01/17 - Bought same Sat Nav as driving examiners are using.
From when the 'L driving test changed on 04/12/17, Sat Navs have been used by examiners in 4 out of 5 test for candidates to drive independently with 1 out of 5 candidates having to follow signs instead. Today I bought the Tom Tom Start 52 Sat Nav which he examiners use so that my pupils will be practising with this same 5 inch Sat Nav as they might get in their test.
