Colne and West Craven Police Command shares recap of rules for learning drivers


The officials of the Colne and West Craven Police Command have issued an advisory for the people of Pendle, a local government area in the jurisdiction of the command, about the safe driving practices for new and learning drivers of the district.

The police command shared a list of requirements meant to be met by the “new and learning drivers”, keeping in mind the road safety for all the area drivers.


This gesture became essential because the police officials of the Colne and West Craven Police Command, on Sunday, November 27, 2022, seized a vehicle from a new learner driver for several violations of road safety regulations.

In light of the incident, The Colne and West Craven Police Command shared a recap reminder of regulations for individuals driving with a provisional license.

The rules are as follows:
Must display learner plates
• Be in the company under the supervision of someone over the age of 21 and who has held a full substantive licence for three years or more.
• Hold valid car insurance as a named driver with the policyholder as someone who holds a full substantive license.

Regarding the reasons for seizing the vehicle, the Colne and West Craven Police Command sources reveal that while driving on a provisional driver’s license (learner’s permit), the driver was not accompanied by anyone over the age of 21 who has held a full substantive licence for over three years.

Further, the vehicle did not have learner plates displayed. The police command officials later noted that they found the learner plates in the vehicle’s glove compartment. However, this does not count as correctly displaying the (learner’s) plates.

Meanwhile, the post shared by the Colne and West Craven Police Command revealed that the vehicle seized by the police authorities did not have valid insurance. This further violates the road safety regulations put in place by the authorities.


The post also featured an image of the vehicle while the police towed it away after seizing it for violating road safety rules. It was a silver vehicle.
