Driving: An essential skill in diaspora

As a diasporan living in the UK, one of the most important skills you can acquire is the ability to drive. Driving offers a range of benefits that can significantly improve your quality of life, whether you are a student, a professional, or simply trying to navigate your way around a new city. In this article, we’ll explore the importance of driving and the advantages it offers.

It is advisable to learn how to drive in your home country before moving abroad. This will save you time and money spent in learning how to drive in a foreign country. In places like the UK, for someone who already has a non-European union licence or an international licence, you could use your licence for 12 months, however if the licence from a designated country or territory you can then apply to exchange it for a GB licence up to 5 years after becoming a GB resident. Upon your arrival, you can apply for your provisional licence, you can then take your theory test and if you pass, you can take your practical tests too. We recommend using the Driving Theory Test 4 in 1 App for practice.

You can also watch YouTube videos to help you understand the skill alongside your lessons. A good place to start is DGN Driving School. You can also checkout The Ultimate Driving Course for more tips.
