New website urges parents to help learner drivers
RoSPA has launched a new website designed to cut the number of crashes among the UK's novice drivers and motorcyclists.
The site, www.helpingldrivers.com, encourages parents to ensure that their children gain as much supervised driving or riding experience as possible during their learning period.
The website has been funded by the DfT and contains information about private practice, professional lessons, the test, the law and where to go for help.
Kevin Clinton, RoSPA Head of Road Safety, said: "If parents are unsure about how best to help their children who are learning to drive or ride, this website has all the answers.
"We hope the site will help parents understand that their children need to gain as much supervised experienced as possible while they are learning. They also need to be encouraged to take further training after they have passed their test."
