The IAM has launched Momentum, a new two-part assessment designed for younger drivers (17-25) who have passed their driving test.
Momentum incorporates two modules; an interactive online assessment, followed by an on-road session with an IAM examiner. It does not involve an exam and there is no risk of failure. It is designed to offer a quick, low-cost option for improving the confidence, awareness and safety of younger drivers.
After passing the driving test there is currently no requirement to take any further driver – development training – despite substantial evidence that post-test training reduces young driver fatalities by up to nearly a third.
Simon Best, IAM CEO, said: “Momentum is a relaxed and effective way for young drivers to gain experience in a supportive environment to get them through this dangerous stage in their early driving years.
“It’s also a practical way for parents to help their children to become safer on the roads.”
The cost for Momentum is £40, which will be taken off the fee for the full Skill for Life programme if purchased within 12 months of the Momentum assessment.
