Jo Folkes Driver Training have always advocated that learning to drive should be taken seriously and learners should not be taught to drive purely to pass tests.
As part of driver safety awareness week Jo Folkes Driver Training will be bringing you a different article each day this week.
Too many young drivers are killed or seriously injured on our roads each day. Here are some shocking statistics:
As many 5,419 people were killed or seriously injured in accidents involving at least one young car driver last year.
In 2011, 2,776 young people were killed or seriously injured on UK roads . Rural areas top the list of places that accidents are most likely to happen.
The single biggest cause of accidental death of young people aged 15-24 is road accident.
40% of 17 year old males have an accident in their first six months of driving.
One in eight drivers is under 25, but they account for a third of people who die on UK roads.
18-year-old drivers are three times more likely to be involved in a crash than a 48 year-old drivers.
Make sure the young driver in your family does not end up as one of these road crash victims by ensuring they are taught to drive safely.
