DVSA partners with Good Egg in young driver pilot scheme

14 March 2018

Story from Road Safety GB.

A pilot scheme with DVSA driving test centres has been launched in a bid to reduce the number of ‘major incidents’ involving young drivers and their passengers.

Created by Good Egg Drivers , the guide, entitled ‘Getting your licence and keeping it… everything you need to know’, highlights the dangers young drivers face at the wheel while providing ‘positive, practical advice’.

The guide was developed in collaboration with academics and road safety experts to provide ‘clear warnings’ on the dangers posed by passenger distraction, mobile phones, alcohol, drugs and speeding.

It also contains practical advice on matters including insurance and buying your first car.
