Teendrive Under 17

Teendrive Under 17 Driving Lessons

Why under 17 Driving Lessons

The whole purpose of pre-seventeen driving lessons is to instil safe driving practices from a younger age, Sweden introduced road safety courses into schools and they reduced their accident rates among young drivers by over 40%. Young drivers account for a high percentage of road accidents and the main reason cited is a lack of experience or road safety knowledge. At Teendrive we intend to make a real difference to road safety through our young drivers at experiences in Sunderland, Durham and Washington.
I created a under 17 driving course for one reason and that is to reduce road accidents among young drivers. I have always been determined to make a real difference to road safety in our area. I have worked for a number of years for a road safety charity and now I have set up the Teen Drive North East Road Safety Charity. The aim of the charity is to offer free road safety courses to schools and educational providers within our area. Only through education can we reduce road accidents among young drivers.

Some driving schools teach under 17 driving lessons in public accessed driving areas which means that your child is driving illegally and can get penalty points and could be prosecuted by the police. Instructors are not insured to teach on public accessed roads for under 17 driving lessons as it is illegal. The general rule is that if anyone can drive into the driving area while under 17 lessons are been taught it is illegal, check before you book as it could be a very costly lesson for yourself and your child with them being banned before they even get their driving license.

Teendrive only teach under 17 driving lessons on private land.
