As all road safety professionals know, young drivers are at high risk of crashing when they obtain a full licence and begin to drive unsupervised. As an example, an 18-year-old is at six times higher risk of crashing than their parents and at three times higher risk of crashing than a 35-year-old who has just passed their driving test.

Finding ways of reducing crashes and casualties caused by young, newly qualified drivers is a key challenge for the Government, road safety professionals and private sector organisations such as insurance companies. Now in its third year, Young Driver Focus 2016 will examine current and future thinking with regard to this vital issue, and what is being done now and in the future to improve the situation.
