Too many young drivers and passengers are at risk of dying or being seriously injured on our roads. If you feel unsafe as a driver or passenger in a car, don’t be afraid to ‘speak out’: it could save your life or your mates’ lives too.
Kent Road Safety’s goal is to educate young drivers and passengers so that they become safer road users. To do this, our team offer virtual Young Driver Courses to all schools in Kent. Designed with Years 12 and 13 in mind, our sessions build awareness and challenge young driver’s perceptions of road safety.
What we offer:
The Young Driver virtual programme provides participant schools with:
- Four virtual sessions, each of which are around 30 minutes.
- The flexibility to access the programme with 1 or 2 sessions a week or all the sessions as a drop-down day.
- Our Young Driver workbook.
- Our Young Driver answer book to help you guide and support your learners.
- Quick knowledge checks and reflection challenges to help your learners consider how to best put their learning into practice.

The KCC Road safety team are offering this free 4-part Young Driver workshop to all Kent Schools.
The course specifically supports young people to understand the key skills required for driving, but it has been written to compliment the Speak Out campaign, designed to empower those young people as passengers too.
Our engaging road safety courses help change the behaviours of young drivers and passengers, making the roads a safer place for everyone.
What does the Young Driver programme need from your school?
- We just need to schedule links with you and seek completion of pre & post surveys.

On top of our courses, Kent Road Safety also offer Theatre in Education sessions throughout schools in Kent.
These performances raise awareness of issues such as impairment through mobile phone use, drink and drugs, inappropriate speed and peer pressure.
