The Learn Safe Drive Safe scheme provides participating approved driving instructors with free specialist training covering the themes outlined below:
- Common crash causation factors linked to the Goals for Driver Education
- An introduction to coaching
- The delivery of the LSDS micro-lessons
- How to use the LSDS e-learning modules with pupils
The micro-lessons have been specifically designed to maximise the learning outcomes whilst minimising the in-car training time to only a few minutes in each lesson.
They specifically look at encouraging novice drivers to develop coping strategies for the range of real life issues that will face them behind the wheel. The practical training is not compromised.
The coaching training is conducted by Ian Edwards of eDriving Solutions who has worked as a consultant for the DVSA on the Learning to Drive Programme and who was the UK representative of the EU funded HERMES Coaching Project.
The one day session has been very well received by participating instructors, is free and instructors receive a certificate which counts towards CPD development and a free book: http://www.edrivingsolutions.com/book.aspx
The scheme has been supported from the outset by the DVSA.
