Young Driver Focus is a one-day road safety conference, bringing together the best and brightest speakers from academia, road safety teams, the police and fire services, and the insurance industry. As the name implies, Young Driver Focus addresses key issues around young motorists and road safety.
Founded by FirstCar and Road Safety GB in 2014, Young Driver Focus has quickly become an important date in the diaries of road safety professionals, attracting the support of DVSA, DfT, IAM Roadsmart, RoSPA, Roadsafe, PACTS, Road Safety Wales, Road Safety Scotland and Department for Infrastructure (NI).
Held annually in the impressive surroundings of the RAC Club in Pall Mall, London, Young Driver Focus is an opportunity for delegates to learn about the latest research, share best practice, and network with other professionals.
As well as the inspiring line-up of speakers, there's also a dedicated exhibition space which delegates visit during breaks in the day's agenda.
For sponsors and exhibitors, Young Driver Focus is an opportunity to expose their brand and products to an audience of highly skilled professionals with influence among their peers and with young drivers.
The event also celebrates achievement in road safety through the FirstCar Young Driver Road Safety Awards. Judged by an expert panel including representatives of Road Safety GB and the DVSA, the awards cover education and training initiatives, private sector initiatives, partnership schemes and young driver campaigns.
For delegates, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors, Young Driver Focus is a red letter day in the road safety calendar.
