How Young is too Young to drive?

Source: bbc.co.uk February 2012

There is a call for the government to encourage young people to learn driving skills before they are old enough to hold a licence.

The Institute of Advanced Motoring believes a lack of driving experience, rather than age, is the reason one in 10 young drivers crash within a year of passing their test.

A number of companies are now offering courses for children as young as 11, in the hope that giving them early driving experience might ultimately make them safer on the road.
