Why Did We Start
StartinYoung was started through necessity. It had long been the belief of the founders of our scheme that training pupils from a younger age will make them far safer drivers.
Pete Leach, one of the founders, had been teaching at an established under 17 driving scheme organised by the local I.A.M for 8 years and had found it benefited the pupils enormously. Then unfortunately the I.A.M's scheme had to close, and it is from the ashes of that scheme that our first Under 17 Scheme arose like a Phoenix.
Pete found a new venue, and then with some friends, Pete set a start date and organised the first meeting. We started with 45 young drivers, but this grew to over 100 within the first few months. The increase was mainly through recommendations.
Will It Make My Child Safer?
A Government study in Sweden showed that accident rates were reduced by a staggering 40% among those pupils who commenced their driver training early
When It Comes to Driving Why Is It Better
Research shows that when learning a new task much more of the brain is assigned to that task, to the detriment of other functions. After repeating a task over some time, the synapses grow new pathways, and through time and repetition, more and more of the new task is assigned to the subconscious, allowing more of the brain to be freed up for other tasks.
How does this affect driving?
Simply put, the earlier you start to drive, the more time you have to develop the skills necessary, and assign the mechanical tasks of driving, to the subconscious part of the brain. This means that once you reach 17, you will be able to concentrate far more on the important driving tasks such as awareness and planning, avoidance of other traffic/pedestrians, road signs etc.
Drivers who participate in underage schemes tend to pass their driving test quicker; are more likely to pass first time; and are much more likely to become a safe, responsible drivers.
Don't wait, get on the scheme as soon as you can, and reap the benefits of a safe driving future!
