Also, are there any things I should look...

Yep, a guilty pleasure of mine as well.

Can't get over the fact that they're all meant to be late teens/early 20s - they all look mid-thrities!

And you'll be on a bus, so it there is an accident at least you won't be alone on a deserted road. Also, when the snacks run out, reverting to cannibalism will be an option!

Has anyone here done a driver refresher course to build confidence after a period of not-driving or after an accident?

If so, was it useful and how many lessons did you need?

Thanks
