According to Government statistics, around one in five newly qualified drivers is involved in a crash within six months of passing their test, with male drivers between 17 and 19 being 9 times more likely to crash compared to females of the same age.
Young drivers, those 17 to 24, are most at risk, not because they are reckless by nature, more to do with a lack of experience and over confidence, a symptom of youth.
This group is the most likely to benefit from TTC DriverProtect® young driver training so if you have young drivers undertaking work-related journeys on behalf of your business, it is important that you mitigate the risks with appropriate training.
At this in-class young driver training course delegates will learn about the key causation factors that make up the most common reasons for your driver incidents, these being:
- Speeding or inappropriate use of speed;
- Impaired driving through drugs and/or alcohol;
- The non-wearing of seatbelts;
- Combatting peer pressure;
- Coping with inexperience.
The key aim of this young driver training course is to provide drivers with a personal coping strategy so that they can avoid being involved in such an incident themselves.
This fun and relaxed workshop is delivered by professional driver trainers and takes around 2 hours to complete.
