Young Driver Focus 2018

31 October 2017

Story from Road Safety GB.

Young Driver Focus 2018 is once again being staged at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall, London, on Wednesday 25th April 2018.

It is jointly organised by FirstCar, Road Safety GB and the RAC Foundation, in association with the young driver insurer and  Prince Michael International Award winner ingenie, who has been the event’s headline sponsor for the past four years.

The first confirmed speakers for Young Driver Focus 2018 are a pair of academics who will deliver a joint presentation looking at how driver attitudes change once they’ve passed the driving test.

Professor Rowe and Dr Poulter will present findings from a recent study investigating the behavioural factors underlying the improvement in road safety for new drivers over the first months of their driving careers, and how their attitudes and behaviour change over time after passing the driving test.

This presentation will form part of a session titled ‘What’s new?’, which will comprise a round-up of the latest thinking, insights and research into young driver behaviour.

The conference programme will also include a session looking at how the new driving test is bedding in six months after its introduction (in December 2017); and a session titled ‘Practitioners in action’ in which road safety practitioners will outline current interventions/campaigns/initiatives they are deploying in their local areas.
