Learn Safe Drive Safe
The biggest killer of young people in Rotherham ?
The biggest cause of serious injury?
Not drink, or drugs, or crime......
Road crashes .... and young drivers are four times more likely to be in a crash than any other driver.
How can we make it safer for them? ......
The Learn Safe Drive Safe scheme prepares young people to deal with the biggest risks they will face when they start to drive unsupervised:
- Peer pressure
- Drink, drugs and tiredness
- Mobile phones and other distractions
One of the best ways to help new drivers be safe is to prepare them to deal with these issues when learning to drive.
Approved Driving Instructors
A core group of Approved Driving Instructors have teamed up with the South Yorkshire Road Safety Teams to use the Learn Safe Drive Safe technique as a standard part of their lessons.
The listed instructors are the only instructors who have received the additional training required to deliver the scheme to ensure new learner drivers get the safest possible start to their driving career.
The lessons cost no more than normal and don't affect the practical side of learning.
