The IAM has Momentum!

20 January 2011

The IAM has launched Momentum, a new two-part assessment for young drivers who have passed their test.

It is designed to help new, young drivers improve their confidence, awareness and safety.

After passing the driving test, there is no requirement for drivers in the UK to take any further training. In road safety terms, this confines most 17-25 year-old drivers – who proportionally suffer the greatest number of deaths and injuries – to improvement by trial and error.

IAM CEO Simon Best said, "Momentum is a relaxed and effective way for young drivers to gain experience in a supportive environment to get them through this dangerous stage in their early driving years.

"It's also a practical way for parents to help their children to become safer on the roads. We need no reminding that young drivers – particularly young men – are more likely to be killed in a road accident than any other group."
