ISM SafeDrive is an on-line tool, specifically created for young people and novice drivers is now on sale at €12.50 per license. The eight module, six hours long on-line course focuses on raising consciousness and increasing in understanding of young person’s responsibility of road safety and on the road responsibility.

“SafeDrive suits ideally for 16 – 25 year olds. It is an on-line empowerment tool which enables young people to understand their responsibility and their own authority when on the road, either as a driver or passenger”, explains ISM Training Services Manager Paul Kenny.

“This is independent, interactive learning where the young person determines their own learning pace. As a responsible organisation for our young road user community, ISM developed this learning tool that can contribute towards achieving the governmental national policy framework outcomes and aims at an individual level. The policy priorities include the outcome of young people being connected, respected and contributing to their world. SafeDrive provides an opportunity for ongoing education and training and makes young people aware of their responsibilities and be respectful of the law when they are road users.” Kenny says.

The training modules explain the dangers of driving at speed, danger of mobile phones while driving, recognising the signs of fatigue, responsible driving and the dangers of drink and drug driving.

“Sadly, we all are aware of those tragic accidents that have taken young peoples lives in recent years. Prevention and education hold the key to positively influence on behaviors and attitudes. The organisations who engage or work with young people either in educational, training or volunteer setting are in an ideal front-line position to facilitate young people’s access to learning.”
