Learn Safe Drive Safe
South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership has identified
that the biggest killer of young people and cause of serious injury in
Sheffield is not drink, drugs or crime, it is road crashes. Together with
a core group of local Approved Driving Instructors, the South Yorkshire
Safer Roads Partnership have got together and developed the Learn Safe
Drive Safe scheme, aimed specifically at younger drivers to tackle this
Being part of the original Driving Instructors, Lynn's School of Motoring
is committed to working with our local authority with the aim of reducing
the extremely high number of younger driver fatalities and serious
injuries that happen every year on Britain's roads.
Through a series of micro-lessons, (see subjects below) young drivers are
asked for their opinions and thoughts regarding these topics before being
given a section to complete at home (which should take no longer than a
few minutes) and return it for the following lesson.
- Self Evaluation
- Influence of Others
Getting the pupil to evaluate his/her actions will highlight that they do
have a choice as to how they drive and behave on the road once they have
passed their driving test. More importantly, how their actions affect
other road users, friends, and their families. Helping to further prepare
them for today's roads and other drivers will hopefully enable them to not
become part of those young driver accidents and casualty statistics.
The Learn Safe Drive Safe Scheme can only be delivered by those driving
instructors who have received the additional training from South Yorkshire
Safer Roads Partnership. If you are a parent who wants your son/daughter
to receive the safest possible start to their driving life, then contact
Lynn's School of Motoring to arrange lessons.
Once your son/daughter has passed their driving test then South Yorkshire
Safer Roads Partnership are running a FREE 3 hour Post-Test Driving Course
worth £75.00. To qualify for this course you must be aged 25 or under,
live in South Yorkshire and have passed your test. For further details
please contact Lynn's School of Motoring.
