Young driver conference close to fully subscribed
More than 80 people have already registered to attend a one-day conference which will focus on young drivers, which is being organised by Road Safety GB in partnership with FirstCar.
The event, “Young driver focus”, was conceived by James Evans, publisher of FirstCar and is being held in Swindon in May 2014.
It is free to attend for Road Safety GB Academy members, but the maximum capacity is around 100 delegates so anyone who has not already registered is being advised to do so as soon as possible.
The conference will look at “cutting young driver casualties now and in the future”. As this suggests the event will be forward-focused rather than a retrospective look at young driver collisions and casualties.
The agenda is currently under development but is likely to comprise the following five sessions: a strategic overview; understanding and influencing young driver behaviour; an expert panel discussion; current campaigns and interventions; and an open forum for delegates to articulate their plans and intentions going forward.
The event is a collaborative partnership between Road Safety GB and FirstCar, supported by Arval who are providing the venue, technology and refreshments.
Young driver focus will be held at The Arval Centre in Swindon (just off the M4) on Wednesday 14 May 2014, 10.00am – 3.30pm.
As stated earlier, the event is FOC for Academy members and the delegate fee for other public sector attendees is just £35 plus VAT. The fee for delegates from the private sector is £100 plus VAT.
New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
