Help make your learner drivers smarter in 60 minutes!

FirstCar Academy is a FREE e-learning resource consisting of 14 short educational videos aimed at making new drivers smarter. We're actively encouraging ADIs to use the Academy as a complimentary support tool for your students who are cramming hard for their theory or practical test but the Academy is also a useful resource tool for those about to start learning or for new drivers with a licence but who want to keep improving.

You can reassure your students that it's not like being at school or college. The FirstCar Academy comprises of 14 videos split across three modules, which they can watch whenever and wherever they like.  At the end of each module they'll need to answer a question to unlock the next module's videos. They earn a certificate when they complete the third and final module, with a pass, merit or distinction. 

Completing the course won't just make them a smarter driver. We're teaming up with several partners to offer rewards to anyone who successfully completes the course, including winning a car for a year*, our sponsors Adrian Flux Insurance Services are offering a £1,000 cash prize and there’s a monthly prize draw to win £100!

I’ve just done my theory test and passed it. Working through the Academy helped my confidence
— Courtney, Year 13
I found each section easy to follow, the video footage was clear, and I thought it cleverly put together with the use of visuals, moving text and overlapping images, for example in the drink drive section.The length of the videos was also important, they were just long enough to keep my attention without getting boring and the messages were informative without appearing patronizing.
