Cambs Drive iQ is a free and award winning online learning platform for young drivers aged 16 to 24.
It offers a great opportunity to educate and influence young people, equipping them with the attitude and ability they need to keep both themselves and others safe while driving on our local roads. Not only does it use videos of local Cambridgeshire and Peterborough roads for real world examples, it also teaches about specific risks relevant to the area, such as being alongside water or high volumes of cyclists.
After initial registration, pupils can undertake the modules as self-study, in tutor group time, or as a workshop led by the teacher or road safety professional.
