FirstCar launches FirstCar Academy

4 October 2017

Story from FirstCar.

The brains behind it is FirstCar’s Founder, James Evans:

'‘For over a decade FirstCar has been at the forefront of providing new driver resources, predominantly publishing specialist printed magazines for these high-risk drivers to make them safer road users. In this digital world, it is only right that FirstCar looks to engage further with these drivers online.'’

Users register here, then watch and learn from a series of 14 short, road safety, educational videos which help raise awareness of important road safety issues. Topics covered include how to be a good passenger, hazards, motorway driving and driver distractions.

The modules can be watched whenever and wherever the user likes. Candidates need to correctly answer one question per module to progress to the next level. It takes around 60 minutes to complete all 14 online modules. A pass, merit or distinction is awarded based on how many attempts taken to answer all the questions.

To find out more about FirstCar Academy please visit at firstcar.co.uk/academy where a short introductory video explains all. It encourages all road safety professionals to take part to better understand how it works.
