Driving in the UK from the EU after Brexit

Driving in the UK;The UK currently permits EU nationals to drive within the United Kingdom under their existing EU license. They would be able to do so with only one reasonable restriction: they may only drive up to 70 years of age. This very same restriction exists for those with UK licenses, so places EU license holders on a level playing field.

 

However, it’s currently unknown how this will play out once the transitionary period of Brexit has concluded. This began on 31st January 2020 – and it’s likely not striking a deal to include rights will curtail this ability significantly.

 

A hard Brexit – where the UK leaves with no deal – is going to be felt far and wide: from businesses who haul goods to and from the UK every day, to the millions of tourists who are visiting and enjoying all that the UK has to offer each year.

 

According to DrivingScout, one of the most popular companies that provides a driving test cancellation checker so you can get an earlier driving test, this will result in substantially increased demand for driving tests with increased wait times.

 

The UK already has a tremendous wait time for driving tests – as much as 12 weeks in some areas. This level of wait is currently seen as normal by the millions of individuals who sit their driving test exam in the UK each year. However, any increased pressure caused by Europeans being forced to take a UK style driving exam may well cause test centres to buckle further under the load.

 

If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of needing to take a UK driving exam quickly, when you’re able to lean on DrivingScout to help you out for a surprisingly small fee of £13 (€15) in addition to the usual fees incurred to take your test.

 

Although the tests are currently cancelled due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, it’s really important that you keep thinking about your test readiness. Where possible, practise using a car that is already within your household (to avoid having to come in contact with another person to rent one) and also ensure that the person sitting with you meets the necessary requirements to be able to supervise your driving. For example, they need to be at least 21 years of age and have had a license for at least 3 years. You must also have the right level of insurance to drive the car on UK roads (including private land areas of supermarkets – appropriate insurance is required).

The DVSA will look to reintroduce exams from July onwards, social distancing permitting. Therefore retain your test standard to be eligible to take your test once their online systems re-open. At present, all tests have been cancelled for a period of three months beginning 20th April 2020, though they have no ruled out extending this period should it be prudent to do so. As a result, it would be all too easy to forget how to learn to drive and therefore require total retraining – which will cause significant additional expense (and a shortage of instructors as many will have been unable to afford being out of work for so long – reducing the number available on the market).

 

Until the 31st January 2021, it will be possible to exchange a full EU driving license for a UK one with the DVSA – the UK’s government run driving association – however this process will take at least 3 weeks. In order to not get caught out, those who are considering doing so should apply to exchange their EU licences to UK ones as soon as possible. Once the 31st October passes, the only recourse may be to apply for a UK license by passing a test in the UK, and relying on companies such as DrivingScout to accelerate this process for you to minimise the impact.

Dr. Sudhir Bhola - The Famous Indian Ayurvedic Doctor.

Contrary to the widespread belief amongst the masses, a doctor or a medical practitioner with aid of medicines is the only medium to solve critical problems like erectile dysfunction or P.E., however, this is not true. In the spectrum of majority sexual disorders, counseling plays a pivotal role as compared to medicines.

A plain dialect with a psychologist can work wonders and help you to overcome your fears & stigmas around sexual performance; speaking of which, how can one miss to mention the best Sexologist doctor from India, Dr Sudhir Bhola. Dr. Bhola firmly believes in the balanced theory of medicines, counseling, and lifestyle changes. His ideology of perfect blend between cognitive and behavioral aspects has helped him bag some of the most prestigious awards in the field of sexology over the past 20 years. He is a renowned doctor who has been practicing for over three decades, helping and guiding patients from all over the world.

Dr. Bhola has been active in many charitable events and aims to make the millennials and GenZ more vigilant and informed about the importance of sex education. He is one of the first doctors to introduce Linear shock wave ED therapy in India, which has emphatically proven that even without medicines, critical sexual-disorders can be treated.

India, bestowed by the gift of Ayurveda by Seers and Rishis, itself highlights the profound connection between the mind and the body, retrospectively a healthy balance must be ensured between both to treat any illness. Dr. Sudhir Bhola believes Ayurveda is the key to a healthy sexual life without having to worry about any sort of side effects. The disease is known is half cured and the best part of the treatment offered at Dr. Bhola’s clinic is that you are always in touch with psycho-sexologists and doctors who strive to decipher the root-cause of patient concerns.

With such eminent doctors in the sphere of healthcare, there’s a paradigm shift in the mindset that has altered the stigma around sexual concerns. In addition to this, it has successfully revolutionized the outlook of people in regard to Ayurveda and psychology.

At Curewell Therapies, doctors not only help you recover from these medical problems but help you change and improve your basic lifestyle in order to get long-lasting relief.

How to Buy A Used Motorcycle – Checklist

How to Buy A Used Motorcycle - Checklist

The MENA region has seen a rise in motorcycles on its road in the last few years. The Japanese giant, Honda Motors is known for producing reliable and safe vehicles across the globe and so, it is no surprise that some of the best Honda Motorcycles have taken the more popular spots than the others. 

However, with prices ranging high – Honda Shine’s average price is around $950 while Honda Unicorn is $1,300, maybe opting for a used bike would be a better option, until you gain some confidence and a better handle on the vehicle.

  1. Visual Inspection

To make sure you are not being duped and are actually getting a fair price on the motorcycle it is important you conduct a visual examination first. Before you even start the motorbike or haggle on the price, just look at the vehicle and see if it meets the criteria you already have set out.

  • Cleanliness

Make sure the bike is thoroughly cleaned. Regardless of how old the bike is, if it is well kept and cleaned properly and shines like it would if it was in a showroom, you know the bike was taken care of fairly well and would be up to the standard.

  • Exhaust Pipe

Second, look at the exhaust pipe. Make sure that it is properly mounted on the bike and is not corroded. Ask the seller to start up the bike in front of you and look for abnormal sounds. If they exist, the motorcycle is probably not up to the standard. 

  • VIN

Thirdly, and most importantly, look at the VIN (Vehicle Identifier Number). These usually consist of 17 characters. The following is how they are divided:

  • Characters 1 – 3 are known as World Manufacturer Identifier (WMI). They show where the motorbike was manufactured.
  • Characters 4 – 9 are the Vehicle Descriptor Section. These convey attributes of the vehicle.
  • Characters 10 – 17 are the Vehicle Identifier Section. These give specific information about the vehicle such as the engine, model year, transmission, and plant code.

Make sure you touch the VIN and see that it is engraved and part of the motorcycle and not just panted over or stuck on. This could really help in identifying if the motorcycle is genuine or not. If you are unsure of what the VIN should look like in the particular brand of motorcycle, look them up online and take a screenshot with you. It is better to be safe than sorry. 

  • Wear and Tear

Lastly, while conducting the physical examination, look for the areas where there is usual wear and tear such as the handlebars and foot pegs and even the levers. If certain parts seem odd, example they do not match the rest of the bike or seemed to be dented or bend in another direction, then it is likely that the seller had them replaced which is usually an indication of a prior crash or accident in which the motorcycle had undergone distress. If the seller had said otherwise, then it’s likely that he is not being fully honest with you which begs the question of what else has he not been truthful about regarding the vehicle.

  • Under the Seat

This is quite crucial. Open the seat and have a look inside. If the wires are unicolored, it means the seller was too cheap to buy the proper equipment to fix it. Also, look for pieces of tape holding wires together or mix match connectors. This is not okay, and the safety standard of the motorcycle just went down significantly. So, beware.

  • Test Drive

After conducting the visual examination, take the motorcycle for a spin. Remember, this is very important. Make sure the bike was cold when you started it up, and pay attention to the sound the engine makes, as discussed above. Then take it for a test drive through the route most similar to the one you are likely to take on an everyday basis. 

There is no harm in buying a secondhand motorcycle. It is just important the vehicle you buy is of proper standard and that you are not being duped and get a fair trade.
