Learner drivers across England, Wales and Scotland will soon be able to have lessons on motorways. From 2018, a learner will be able to practice on motorways as long as they are with an approved driving instructor in a dual control car. The law change is set to come into affect next year. Currently, drivers with provisional licences cannot go onto Britain’s fastest roads. Although there are advanced driving courses, which provide instructor-led motorway for drivers who have passed their test, the cost of these can be off-putting. For the vast majority of new drivers, their first time on a motorway and driving at the upper speed limit of 70 miles-per-hour happens without a teacher in the passenger seat. Image:It is hoped the law change will better prepare learners for independent driving The Department for Transport, which consulted driving groups ahead of the change in law and received “wide support”, believes it will make roads safer. “Younger drivers are up to seven times more likely to be killed or seriously injured compared with drivers over 25 and lack of experience is an important factor,” said Transport Secretary Chris Grayling. “Allowing learners to drive on motorways in a supportive environment will help them develop a practical understanding of how to use motorways safely before driving independently.” Learner driver Ellie Mason-Bush, 22, from Bristol is due to take her test next week. She told Sky News she believes the law change is positive news for learners who feel nervous about motorway driving but who could not afford advanced driving lessons. “I think it is definitely going to help,” she said. “They say motorways are some of the safest roads you can be on, so it is not going to harm. Naturally it will slow the process down but, if it makes the roads safer, it is something we all have to get on board with.” Image:Currently, drivers with provisional licences cannot go onto Britain’s fastest roads The RAC motoring body and the DVSA, the government agency which sets the driving test, have both welcomed the law change. But some driving instructors have concerns about how safe it is. Over a 10-year career, James, who did not give his full name, has taught hundreds of learner drivers. Although it will not be compulsory for instructors to take their pupils on a motorway, James thinks the law change adds unnecessary risk. “If we take learners to the motorway, there is a danger they might find they panic,” he said. “They may go too slow, they may get intimidated. And if they do have a moment of panic, there is no way no pull over.” For now, there are no plans to include motorway driving as part of the basic driving test – but the Department for Transport told Sky News that this is under review. Earlier this year it was revealed that learners would be tested on how to safely use satellite navigation systems, as the Government moves ahead with plans to modernise the standard driving test.

Where can I get reliable offline drivers for a PS3 Controller?
I know of two driver/software combos that allow me to use my PS3 controller as a PC gamepad: MotionInJoy - I am using this right now but I have an older version which I was able to install and use without an internet connection. (I've unfortunately lost the instructions on how to do it again so I can only get it to work on my main computer and not my laptop) SIXAXIS - Which is easier to use offline and easier to install, but I have to run a batch file every time the controller disconnects. It's not as robust as MotionInJoy, as it doesn't allow me to remap the buttons to key-presses (which is annoying, as some games such as Melty Blood don't seem to recognize some of the input values) So I'm wondering if there is any other PS3 Controller Drivers out there which I can install offline and are more reliable. I don't care if they are digitally signed or not since I can disable that dam system in Windows 7 easily enough. I mainly use the controller for the following games: Melty Blood ePSXE (for playing Games incompatible with the PS3 like Final Fantasy 8) Kamidori Alchemy Miester (never got a controller to work for it but would love to have one) Megaman X3 PC

The current qualifying system was adopted in the 2006 season. Known as "knock-out" qualifying, it is split into three periods, known as Q1, Q2, and Q3. In each period, drivers run qualifying laps to attempt to advance to the next period, with the slowest drivers being "knocked out" at the end of the period and their grid positions set, based on their best lap times. Drivers are allowed as many laps as they wish within each period. After each period, all times are reset, and only a driver's fastest lap in that period (barring infractions) counts. Any timed lap started before the end of that period may be completed, and will count toward that driver's placement. The number of cars eliminated in each period is dependent on the total number of cars entered into the championship. Currently, with 20 cars, Q1 runs for 18 minutes, and eliminates the slowest five drivers. During this period, any driver whose best lap time exceeds 107% of the fastest time in Q1, will not be allowed to start the race without permission from the stewards. This rule does not affect drivers in Q2 or Q3. In Q2, the 15 remaining drivers have 15 minutes to set one of the ten fastest times and proceed to the next period. Finally, Q3 lasts 12 minutes and sees the remaining ten drivers decide the first ten grid positions. At the beginning of the 2016 Formula 1 season, the FIA introduced a new qualifying format, whereby drivers were knocked out every 90 seconds after a certain amount of time had passed in each session. The aim was to mix up grid positions for the race, but due to unpopularity the FIA reverted to the above qualifying format for the Chinese GP, after running the format for only two races.

Wherefore, a common place hath no _exhordium_, or be- ginnyng, yet neuerthelesse, for the profite and exercise of the learner, you maie place soche a _proemium_, or beginnyng of the oracion, as maie be easie to induce the learner.
The youth went along with slipping uncertain feet. He kept watchful eyes rearward. A scowl of mortification and rage was upon his face. He had thought of a fine revenge upon the officer who had referred to him and his fellows as mule drivers. But he saw that it could not come to pass. His dreams had collapsed when the mule drivers, dwindling rapidly, had wavered and hesitated on the little clearing, and then had recoiled. And now the retreat of the mule drivers was a march of shame to him.
