RoSPA awarded funding for Young Drivers at Work project
RoSPA has been granted funding by the Department for Transport to develop and carry out research on young drivers (aged 17-25) who drive for work. RoSPA is steering the project in partnership with the DSA, road safety advisors and key stakeholders. The research will take the form of a feasibility study and will be aimed at employers of young drivers and young drivers themselves. Specifically, the research will test the thesis that employers are concerned that young drivers require skills and experience additional to those taught in the present system of driver training and testing. The DSA will use the results of the project to help determine the need for work-related post-test education, training or qualifications for young drivers.
