Thames Valley Police & Safer Roads Partnership – Young Drivers Scheme

Young Drivers, 2009

The UK’s first driver offender rehabilitation scheme that targets a particular demographic group rather than defining groups based on vehicle use or offending behaviour.  Launched in April 2008 by The Prince, 4,000 young drivers passed through the scheme within the first year. Evaluation shows that the Young Driver Scheme is proving to be nearly 60% more effective in reducing re-offending rates than issuing a Fixed Penalty Notice.
