Giving young drivers a safer start

The Admiral Young Drivers Academy gives 11 to 16 year olds a chance to develop their driving skills long before they venture onto public roads.

The Admiral Young Driver Academy gives 11 to 16 year olds the chance to experience life behind the wheel before they even have their provisional licence.

According to research carried out by the RAC Foundation, young people who learn to drive at 17 are almost 50% more likely to be involved in a crash than those who learn at 25*. The Admiral Young Driver Academy was set up in order to arm young people with more knowledge and experience than the average 17-year-old driver would have before they take to public roads.

"Once they hit 17, for many it's about passing their test as quickly as possible, which can mean they actually spend very few hours driving before they qualify. When passing their test is still five years away, they can focus more on the responsibility of being behind the wheel." Kim Stanton - Young Driver.

At Admiral we want to provide low-cost car insurance for younger drivers, to do that we need to prepare the next generation of new drivers to be safe and aware when hitting the roads. The Admiral Young Driver Academy is helping develop better-trained, safer young drivers in the UK.
