Working in partnership with PSNI, the DOE in Northern Ireland has produced a ‘Safe Driving Teaching Aid’ to support the role driving instructors play in preparing new and young drivers for the risks of driving independently.

The pack includes a booklet which addresses topics including the risk of being a new driver, speeding, drink driving, seatbelt wearing, vulnerable road users, drug driving, inattention and mobile phone use.

Each topic has a section of key facts that can be discussed, and a real life story about the consequences of taking risks on the road. The pack also contains prompt cards which can be used as a quick reference.

The pack is an interactive aid designed to help the ADI discuss risks with learner drivers. By choosing one topic to discuss during each driving lesson, the ADI can help new drivers feel the risks that they will face every day on the road. The teaching aid is designed to create debate and stimulate discussion between the instructor and student.

The pack is available free of charge to ADIs in Northern Ireland - see contact details below.
