    I know Dan (DML) pretty much has this in the bag by have had L-Plates on his SL500, we are now teaching daughter to drive ourselves.
    Fortunately the "Magnetic" plates to NOT stick to my CL55 :) but they do look rather daunting on Viviennes L200 Pick-up. Watch out Guildford area :lol:

    I've seen it on the odd Porsche.

    Is the L200 a manual?

    I think Stumpy has seen them on all kinds of Nigerian owned exotica regardless of the legality/status of the ''driving licence'' in the UK or elsewhere for that matter.

    I had the same problem with my L plates - you just have to tape them on :D

    Go on, let her drive the CL!

    this brings back sad memories...under 2 months ago a something similar happened just down the road at the health centre!..it had a bridge to the entrance of the Doctors with a covered roof with GLASS sides! .. old pensioner lost control of their electric scooter / buggy crashed right through the glass 20 foot drop onto concrete:(..air ambulance came but not much could be done

    resting in peace now:(

    That's very unfortunate for the pensioner and probably more-so for their family but this is simply darwinism in action!

    Here is another exampe, yes it looks painful but really - if you make stupid decisions you must live with the consequences... unfortunately she wasn't removed from the gene pool:

    Yeah, I like how she just stands there at the end waiting for other people to lift her scooter down for her.
