Young drivers

Title: Momentum

Momentum is a two-part assessment designed for younger drivers (17-25 years) who have passed their driving test.

Momentum incorporates two modules; an interactive online assessment, followed by an on-road session with an IAM examiner. It does not involve an exam and there is no risk of failure. It is designed to offer a quick, low-cost option for improving the confidence, awareness and safety of younger drivers.

After passing the driving test there is currently no requirement to take any further driver development training - despite substantial evidence that post-test training reduces young driver fatalities by up to nearly a third.

The cost for Momentum is 40, which will be taken off the fee for the IAM's full Skill for Life programme if purchased within 12 months of the Momentum assessment.
