About Young Driver Focus

As all road safety professionals know, young drivers are at high risk of crashing when they obtain a full licence and begin to drive unsupervised. As an example, an 18-year-old is at six times higher risk of crashing than their parents and at three times higher risk of crashing than a 35-year-old who has just passed their driving test.

Finding ways of reducing crashes and casualties caused by young, newly qualified drivers is a key challenge for the Government, road safety professionals and private sector organisations such as insurance companies.

Now in its sixth year, Young Driver Focus 2019 will examine current and future thinking with regard to this vital issue, and what is being done now and in the future to improve the situation.

Organised by Road Safety GB working in partnership with FirstCar and the RAC Foundation, Young Driver Focus is designed to be of interest to:

• Public sector road safety professionals - road safety officers, fire & rescue, police and others involved in road safety delivery
• Private sector organisations and individuals with an interest in working in partnership with the road safety profession.

To register interest in attending please contact Sally Bartrum by email and she will add you to the database to ensure you are notified when the booking form goes live.
