2016 Young Driver’s Guide on the horizon
The 2016 edition of the Young Driver’s Guide will be published in late-March and the publisher is offering a discounted rate for road safety teams who place an order before the end of this month.
First published in 2013 by FirstCar, the Young Driver’s Guide is a comprehensive guide to getting a provisional licence, choosing an instructor and preparing for and taking the theory and practical driving tests.
It also provides information on how to buy a new or used car, how car insurance works and how to get the best deal, advice on running a car including essential maintenance, and the key road dangers and how to deal with them.
The 2016 edition extends to more than 116 pages.
James Evans, founder of FirstCar, said: “We’re so pleased that the Young Driver’s Guide has become a staple young driver engagement resource for road safety teams.
“As well as the 2016 edition of the Guide, we are also taking orders for the new editions of FirstBike and the Ultimate Guide to Cycling.”
The Young Driver Guide costs between 50p and £1 per copy, depending on volume. Copies of the Ultimate Guide to Cycling, DriveOn (for older drivers) and FirstBike range from 35p to 60p.
Anyone interested in ordering should contact James Evans by email or on 08451 308853/07800 822818.
