Some say that its better because more drivers are understanding, give way most of the time and don't honk unnecessarily while other new drivers complain that they face a lot of nasty tailgaters and aggressive 'experienced' drivers. Well its not just the drivers under probation who are 'under attack', it seems that experienced drivers also have complaints about new drivers hogging the roads and changing lanes without looking out for traffic.
So who is at fault here?
All I can say is that from my own experience when I was still driving under the P-Plate, most drivers on highways were very impatient even though I was travelling slightly above the speed limit of 90, most of them were traveling at around 105 to 110. I think it really depends on where you're driving and the current road condition. In traffic jams, having the P-plate did help quite a bit especially when changing lanes and in the smaller roads as well, most drivers tend to be more understanding. But on the highways, P-plates stand no chance...
