Now i've passed can i drive straight away? - You are certainly licenced to drive and the certificate from your examiner will prove it to anyone that asks. Just make sure the vehicle is suitably insured and roadworthy... and please drive safely!!

Is it true that for 2 years after passing your test you only need 6 penalty points to lose your licence? - Yes i'm afraid so. But what better incentive is there to take your time and gain experience in situations that might not have arisen during lessons. Remember that it's important to keep your car roadworthy too as a single tyre found to have a tread depth lower than the legal limit would mean at least 3 penalty points.  The safety benefits are of course an even better reason to drive safely and legally!!  

Now i've passed can't i just drive how i like? - But wouldn't it be a shame to undo all the hard work you and your instructor have put into getting you to test standard? :-)  And of course you wouldn't want to have to do it all again!! (see previous question).  It all comes down to one thing .... responsibility. By maintaining and of course improving the standard of your driving you will help to keep yourself, your passengers and other road users much safer.
