17-24 year olds are at almost twice the risk of being killed in road accidents as other drivers. Road accidents account for one in every four deaths of teenagers aged 15 – 19 in Britain and a third of people killed on the roads is under 25.
The young driver debate has been growing within the industry and government. The British government have been developing the ‘green paper’ . Currently parliament have ‘stalled’ their decision making on this issue, meaning that we will not see any changes.
Graduated driver licensing was a potential part of the development. In our opinion, the licence is not the problem, the method of acquiring the licence and the time spent under professional supervision compared to the non supervision time – often 53 years…..is the problem.
Graduated driver learning is a system whereby driver development (knowledge and practical skill) starts from an earlier pre-test stage and continues beyond the actual test, Autotutors Young Driving School provides this system.
The feedback we have gained from parents and young drivers on our programme confirms that we provide an invaluable solution. Contact us to discuss in more detail or go to calender and booking to get started.
