New Driver Safety Ambassadors complete presentations in post 16 schools and colleges across Northern Ireland.

The presentations are tailored for each individual school and lasting from 40 minutes to 1 hour 20 minutes depending on the time allocated by the school to us.

During the presentation, the following is discussed:

* Learning to Drive.

* Buying, insuring and maintaining a car.

* Penalty point and the consequences

* Road Safety including explaining and signing of the “Share the Road to Zero” pledge

* Discussing the impact of distractions to young people driving and the impact of passenger distractions.

* Explaining the financial and social benefits by adapting a positive attitude towards driving.

The presentations finishes with me asking the students a number of questions to open their minds to the consequences of not following the Share the Road to Zero pledge.
