Young Drivers Feel Unprepared For Driving Alone – And Almost Two-Thirds Are In Favour Of Minimum Learning Periods

Young drivers feel unprepared for driving on Britain’s roads after passing their test according to research from the Co-operative Insurance.

Almost one third of young drivers said they felt unable to drive alone after passing their test, and 14% considered themselves “unprepared” to drive at all.

The biggest hurdle young drivers said they were unprepared for was motorway driving (see table) and 21% said they had avoided motorways as a result. Overall, 64% of young drivers said they had avoided certain situations or manoeuvres as a result of lack of confidence in their driving ability.

Risk takers

Despite this, 90% of the young drivers surveyed said they had taken some risks while driving including speeding (43%) and text messaging (21%).
