Young driver event fully subscribed
The Young Driver Focus conference being held in May 2014 is now fully subscribed.
Young Driver Focus is a collaborative partnership between Road Safety GB and FirstCar, supported by Arval who are providing the venue, technology and refreshments.
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.
Speakers include Richard King (CEO of ingenie), Dr Lisa Dorn (Cranfield University), Liz Baldock and Bill Pope (both DVLA), Poppy Husband (TRL), Carly Brookfield (DIA), Alan Kennedy (Road Safety GB), Dave Lawson (Sheffield CC), Steve Horton (Kent CC) and Natalie Oakley (Gloucestershire RSP).

It will be held at The Arval Centre in Swindon (just off the M4) on Wednesday 14 May 2014, 10.00am – 3.30pm.
More than 150 people have registered to attend. Anyone still hoping to do so should complete the registration form and if there are cancellations they will be offered a place.
