According to research carried out by the RAC Foundation one in four UK drivers aged 18-24 crashes within two years of passing their test.
With this is mind several car manufacturers and independent organisations have stepped up to the plate to introduce youngsters to driving safety long before they get to take their test and are let loose on public roads.
Jaguar First is one such scheme. Held at six locations up and down the country, Jaguar invites children aged 11-17 to come and drive a Jaguar XE Saloon on test tracks which have been designed to realistically represent public roads.
The driving lessons are run by qualified driving instructors and cost £45 each. The goal of starting learners early is to increase their awareness of driving responsibly and also to give them insight into cycle safety at the same time.
Once students have cracked the test track, they move them on to a track with a two-way traffic driving experience which includes handling the car at junctions and roundabouts as well as maneuvering through slaloms, and mastering the reverse park.
Another organisation to offer a similar learning experience is the Under 17 Car Club. The club claims to have taught over 4,000 pre-license drivers since 1976 and it is run entirely by volunteers.
Ford Motor Company also provides 'Driving Skills for Life' courses to slightly older, qualified drivers aged between 17 and 24. Their scheme specifically focuses on defensive driving and hazard perception training, along with time in a 'drunk suit' that simulates the effects of being under the influence of alcohol.
