Baz, a driving instructor from Leicester, uploaded the video to his TikTok account. The driving expert uses his social media to help others learn to drive and stay on top of changing road laws.

Baz Vaghela, who has been a driving instructor since 2006, addressed the new phone use laws in the video.
Breaking these laws can have very, very serious repercussions.
In the helpful video, the driving expert clearly explained the new rules and surprised many drivers.
He said: “The law has changed when it comes to using your phone while driving.
“It is now illegal, totally illegal, to hold or use a phone, sat nav or tablet or any device that can send or receive data while driving or on a motorcycle.”

Baz said, “This law still applies if you’re stopped at traffic lights, if you’re queuing in traffic, if you’re supervising a learner driver or if you’re driving in general, that goes without saying.”
There are a few ways you can still use your phone while driving a car, though they are much more limited in number now.
“You can only use a phone to make an emergency call like 999 or 112, but make sure you’re parked safely before doing so,” Baz explained.
He continued: “You are allowed to make contactless payments at a self-service if you are ordering food, for example.
“But it must be stopped, the vehicle must not be moving.”
So what are the repercussions for Britons who have broken this law?
“Of course you can get six points on your license and a £200 fine,” Baz explained.
For those who have recently passed away, this could cause a great deal of irritation.
“If you just passed your driving test in the last two years, that means six points on your license will mean an automatic license revocation,” Baz said.
“You will lose your driver’s license and have to retake your driving theory test.”
The Government said of this new law: “It is illegal to hold and use a phone, sat nav, tablet or any device that can send or receive data, while driving or riding a motorcycle.
“This means that you should not use a device in your hand for any reason, be it online or offline.
“For example, you shouldn’t text, make calls, take photos or videos, or surf the web.”
This still applies even if you are:
You can use hands-free devices, as long as you are not holding them.
