Recent changes to the structure of and the laws supporting the licensing system for novice drivers means parents
and their teenagers are looking for support to navigate their way through the learner and provisional licence stages.
Parents of learner drivers are looking to make the most out of their on-road supervised driving sessions, particularly
as the upcoming holidays are a very popular time to go out on the road. Those young people already with their
licence will no doubt be spending a lot more time in the car heading out with friends – which can increase their risk
