FirstCar, Road Safety GB (RSGB) and the RAC Foundation are some of the most respected brands in the young driver market and they combine forces to present Young Driver Focus 2022. This one-day conference is uniquely focussed on cutting young driver casualties. It will specifically address key road safety issues for the 17-25 year old high-risk group of drivers.

This is the event’s seventh year, and once more it will take place at the prestigious, five-star Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall, London.

Young drivers and road safety take centre stage at the annual Young Driver Focus conference.

For anyone involved in teaching and educating young drivers, or with a general interest in road safety, this remains the ‘go to’ event.

Evolving skills

As all driver trainers know, young drivers are more at risk of being involved in a car crash in the first few months after passing their driving test. Compared to other road users, the statistics remain an upsetting reality.

An 18-year-old is six times higher risk of crashing than their parents, and three times higher risk than a 35-year-old who has just passed their test.

Peer pressures, distraction, brain development, there are many ingredients in the carnage.

Young Driver Focus examines the facts, statistics, theories and the latest thinking on reducing the human damage. Better training and testing methods, technology and lifestyles will be touched upon to help us fully understand the issues. Through these we will undoubtedly be better equipped to find the best solutions.

The future

Technology continue to evolve in its scope, power and influence. It plays an increasingly important role both in terms of the problems facing young drivers, and the remedies for their safety. This is why this year’s conference has a particular focus on ‘Technology Matters’. It is here and will continue to be a fundamental part of our lives on and off the road. So, understanding it and utilising it for our and our pupil’s advantage is key to better training and road safety.

From Baroness Vere of Norbiton, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department for Transport to motoring celebrity and expert Quentin Willson.

From Loveday Ryder, Chief Executive, DVSA, right through to the President of the AA, Edmund King. While there may be too many to list here, the speaker line up is both broad and exceptional.

Scientists to road safety officers, technology experts to captains of coaching, the line-up will be unsurpassed.

The information they provide and discussions they stimulate will help you gain a deeper understanding of this complex issue. Going forward it can only aid you in your quest to design and deliver even better training to your customers and pupils.
