Road Safety

Young and novice drivers are more likely to be involved in road accidents than more experienced drivers. They are more likely to be involved in high-speed accidents, accidents in the dark, accidents when overtaking and when negotiating bends. They are also more likely than experienced drivers to be at fault for accidents.

Many things can affect your safety on the road whilst driving such as using mobile phones, your use of speed, fatigue, drink and drugs, distractions in the car and so on. If there is anything you're unsure about, ask your instructor. Where appropriate perhaps instead consider a Pass Plus or refresher course.

To further support you online, you will find useful information throughout and a number of Youtube Directgov, Driving Standards, and Driver Vehicle and Licensing Agency short films. Video buffer times may vary.
