Children as young as 11 have been learning to drive as part of the training programme ‘Young Drivers At School’ which spent 18 months working with Milton Keynes Academy, delivering nearly 4,500 lessons to students and the local community.
Students took part in computer-based road safety training whilst Key Stage 3 students were allowed to get in a car and drive. Research by Young Drivers suggested that those who start to learn before the age of 17 are half as likely to have a road traffic accident after they pass their test.
