The Under 17 Car Club
Our philosophy promotes safe driving skills and attitudes through our continuing programme of volunteer run pre-licence driver development events.
We believe that the most effective way to enable this vulnerable group to respond to the challenges faced by novice drivers is by:
- Substantially increasing their awareness and understanding of road risk ;
- Supporting them in developing a positive safe-driving attitude;
- Increasing their level of technical competence as drivers; and
- Learning to drive to a high standard while having great fun and meeting new friends.
More Club Members achieve IAM Passes
Adding to Megan's success, two more Club Members have passed their IAM tests which they took on Sunday both aged 17 yrs, which has astounded the IAM examiners by the quality of drivers that we as a club produce which further provides evidence that our methodology with young people really works! See news item for more information.
Praise Indeed From First Buses

Nick was extremely impressed with the competance of our young drivers, leading him to comment on his days experience.
