The scheme is aimed at young qualified drivers aged 17 to 30 and young non-drivers aged 15 years or over. This allows us to run two events simultaneously and provides invaluable, potentially lifesaving skills.
The courses are tailored specifically to impart a dynamic mix of workshops and driving challenges, set within the inspirational British Grand Prix venue and the home of British Motor Racing - Silverstone Circuit.
Over 15,000 drivers have benefited since the CarKraft Driver Improvement Scheme was first introduced in 2001. This high volume scheme continues to be hugely popular and regularly over-subscribed.
Road user behaviour is responsible for or a major factor in 95% of collisions. We are therefore committed to delivering a life-long learning process for drivers in order to establish a road safety mindset.
A full and independent evaluation published by the Department for Transport as part of a best practice study concluded that:
"Catching young road users prior to full-scale independent driving brought about the greatest improvements in attitudes"
