North Derbyshire - Learn Safe Drive Safe

Too many young drivers are dying on Derbyshire’s roads.

Luckily the Learn Safe, Drive Safe scheme (LSDS) is helping learners in four Derbyshire districts to stay safe on today’s busy roads.  

Adopting the right attitude is essential for young drivers when they begin to drive unsupervised. That’s why LSDS instructors will prepare learners to deal with the biggest risks they’ll face once they’ve passed their test:

  • Peer pressure
  • Drink and drugs
  • Distractions including mobiles
  • Tiredness

The map below gives details of Derbyshire driving instructors who use the LSDS technique as a standard part of their lessons.  Their lessons cost no more than normal and the LSDS teaching doesn’t affect the amount of on-road tuition that learners receive.

Derby and Derbyshire Road Safety Partnership has introduced the Learn Safe, Drive Safe Scheme in the following districts thanks to funding from the Sheffield City Region Economic Partnership:

  • Bolsover
  • Chesterfield
  • Derbyshire Dales
  • North East Derbyshire
