Young Driver Focus - Speaker Annoncement

12 January 2023

Dr Shaun Helman, Chief Scientist at TRL, will be leading one of our five key topics at the Young Driver Focus event in London in May.

Shaun has worked in road safety since 2000. His research has focused on changes to the licensing system for novice drivers. This includes the introduction of independent driving in 2010, the new sat nav component in 2017, and the wider evidence based on Graduated Driver Licensing.
