Caledonian Young Driver Sessions - Under 17s Driver Education

Pre-provisional driver training for under-17s, designed to target thoughts and attitudes on driving behaviour and to encourage reflective processes

19 out of 20 crashes are attributed to poor driver attitude and behaviour as opposed to a lack of driving skill” (a2om, Drive IQ). With this in mind, Caledonian Young Driver is delighted to introduce a unique behavioural based training programme for 15 and 16-year-olds.

Using the Goals for Driver Education Matrix as its starting point, our off-road training courses challenge under-17s to question their motivations in decision making and to critically consider concepts such as how emotions affect moods and actions. Clients will learn about basic car safety issues and will have the opportunity to learn how to control a car, but will also be introduced at this early stage to some of the many mental processes that are vital to a lifetime of safe driving. Demonstrations in distracted driving will be given, and short coaching conversations will encourage clients to reflect on what they have seen and experienced. As part of their continuing professional development, all Caledonian LDT Instructors who deliver the Caledonian Young Driver course are required to have attended a bespoke training course focusing on coaching for driver development.

Each student will receive handouts and a certificate of attendance

Phase 1: Car safety checks, clutch control, steering, reversing, 1 x in-car coaching sessions on risk-increasing factors.
