In April of 2006, Advanced Driving UK launched the UK’s first focus group on the BBC Action Network website aimed at improving the skills of Young Drivers and has gone from strength to strength in promoting activities in this area.
This initiative coincided with activites taking place at Universities in the UK and the first University Advanced Driving group being setup at Staffordshire in 2006. Since then both the IAM and RoSPA have both followed suit with their own Young Driver initiatives and focus groups targeting educational establishments.
Advanced Driving UK has been a Forum for novel and innovative ideas to push the boundaries of road safety amongst young road users and most recently working with the author of Mind Driving, Stephen Haley in his work on Essential Thinking Skills in a bid to persuade the DSA and DfT into thinking differently about how people should be taught and tested before taking the roads.
Our dedicated Driver Network Forum is unique for the small user groups and meets that take place amongst Advanced Driving UK members in a bid to talk about the skills required as an Advanced Driver. Being a member of Advanced Driving UK gives you access to such people to gain advice on motoring related topics, take part in meets, even show off your pride and joy in a like minded motoring environment.
