Do your local schools know about Theory Test Pro?

31 July 2009

Road safety is set to get a much higher profile at secondary schools. A new pre-driver qualification course is to be introduced in September 2009. The course will be available to 14-17 year olds and take three months to complete. At the end of the course, students will get a partial credit which will count towards their theory test.

What this means for students is that they will need to know more about the Highway Code and the theory test much earlier in life. Research shows that earlier exposure to driving and road safety reduces injuries and fatalities. Introduction of similar learning programmes in New Zealand saw car crash injuries fell by 23% for 15-19 year olds and by 12% for 20-24 year olds.

If you have Theory Test Pro in your library then I’d encourage you to approach your local schools to make them aware that this service is available to students. This will be an excellent way to introduce students to library resources and grow your membership base.
