I'm planning a month in Scotland in February. Does anyone have advice on how to allocate my time in different areas? E.g. spending more time in Glasgow versus Edinburgh, or vice versa
hnmskmeyme2mo
Oof cold time to go
zmiauvtbajmy2mo
Yup. Lucky I like snow ๐Ÿ™‚
kgkuscyimc2mo
Maybe check out the highlands
vqphodcymi2mo
Glasgow Iโ€™m told is more fun to live in with more culture etc
ndwslfmlxf2mo
Edinburgh is more beautiful and touristy
doqqwecgji2mo
I only know Edinburgh really
ffjifzlhnqqe2mo
Hmm thanks! Do you still recommend the highlands if I can't drive?
sufnqowfpz2mo
Ummm probably less so. Iโ€™m not sure as Iโ€™ve only driven and not sure about transport.
luirgtsbki2mo
Snowy highlands shot from 2013
ysnerqdvdcv2mo
Transport in the highlands is pretty difficult without a car, and I'd imagine even harder in winter. You can get to some nice smaller towns by train, but to really explore you'd need to drive (or make friends with someone who does)
ltjyhqdvhcru2mo
That's gorgeous!
nwguicuoexm2mo
If you stay in Edinburgh I'd recommend Leith, there are some good coffeeshops along the main street and easy bus transport links
wvaothybe2mo
I donโ€™t think itโ€™s worth doing the Highlands without a car, personally.
rhayvteqq2mo
But they are sooooo gorgeous so maybe find someone to explore with who can drive!

Anyone have any experience getting a license in the UK?

Iโ€™m Canadian, and have a British passport. Was thinking it would be faster (than 3 years in Ontario) to spend 3-4 months in Belfast and learn to drive there.

Google says itโ€™s 3 steps (provisional licence, theory test, & driving test), just not sure how long it takes between them
ylknj2mo
if you've driven before, there are some intensive courses where you can get your driving licence in a week
nnbdh2mo
grab your provisional licence first, just fill a form online and get it sent to a UK address
jifbp2mo
that allows you to drive with L (learner) stickers with someone holding a full licence in the passenger seat
puzbf2mo
the default will be to learn in a manual (geared / stick shift) car, the majority here still use them for whatever reason
fjskc2mo
either book some lessons with a tutor, they can take you all the way up to passing your driving test
wzzcs2mo
or maybe you have your own idea how you'll practice
wqpzo2mo
the test is in two parts, one is a theory test like you mentioned - this is pretty easy, grab some software to practice the test since I wouldn't really say it's intuitive
ogugn2mo
the theory test is a set of multiple choice questions and a hazard perception test where you'll have a video play and you click as soon as you detect a hazard (think child about to run into the road, car pulling out on you, etc)
cgehm2mo
and the driving test is driving a route around a test centre, they'll check you can follow signage (no GPS), observe speed limits, use a roundabout correctly, and 2 of a handful of manoeuvres (parallel park, bay park, three-point turn, reversing around a corner, hill start)
tfjjl2mo
I find it helped me big time to explain what I was doing while taking the test - takes out any guesswork, since an observed 'hesitation' can be a major fault.. err on the side of caution always, e.g. driving slower than the speed limit is a minor fault, faster is an instant major fault
ttjtk2mo
you pass your driving test if you have no major faults and less than 16 (I think?) minor faults
mllfcmtozlvxj2mo
Just arrived in Belfast. Hi!
bzcmqqzhe2mo
zedkhencfz Basically everything zusqkc said. Apparently Blackpool is the best place to do the 1 week intensive course as the roads are straight up & down. Itโ€™s even easier if you opt to only drive automatic.
fjywvfikn2mo
The actual majors & minors are really annoying so just research those before your test. As ysmibs said they are a bit fickle. However, best advice I ever had was to treat your examiner like youโ€™re chauffeuring them and engage in minimal conversation.
racrtuxq2mo
my random alternative idea after completing was do the test as early as possible, fail it, then put a bit more effort into the re-test once you know what to expect. The test is relatively inexpensive compared to the tutoring, and if you do all that but then get caught out by the format/nerves youโ€™ll have to retest anyway. Personally I had it figured out by the test, but then reversed on a kerb for an instant fail, but sailed through the re-test. That being said I think the intensive options noted above sounds good
