Liverpool launches pre-driver scheme
Liverpool’s road safety team, in partnership with British School of Motoring, Merseyside Police and Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service has launched a pre-driver training scheme.
The scheme, which targets students before they take their driving test, is designed to improve the attitude and behaviour of future drivers. It aims to maximise the benefits of intervention before driving habits and behaviours are established.
Small groups of students have 40-minute lessons divided between practical driving activities in dual-controlled cars and discussion sessions.
The students are trained in basic driving skills before taking turns to drive through a coned course at 20mph. They then drive the same course with distractions such as changing a CD, using a mobile, wearing distortion glasses and with conversations going on.
For further information contact Martin McIntyre on 0151 233 2440.
New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
