Phyllis used to give me a few driving lessons in her old Citroën Picasso, and we bought L plates for that reason.
For various reasons, I stopped learning to drive temporarily, but I’ve now started again, this time with a real instructor.
However, we thought it’d be good to get some additional experience, so Phyllis has now added me onto her insurance (funnily enough, it’s cheaper while I only have a provisional license than it’ll be after I pass the test).
We were going for a quick drive after dinner, and we were going to put on the L plates when we discovered that the entire back end of our Citroën C8 is non-magnetic, so the plate won’t stick. The rest of the car is fine, but the law says that one of the L plates needs to go on the back.
We stuck in on with sticky tape, but it’s just such a hassle compared to having a car made of iron!
