Royal Russell School Young Drivers Awarded - December 2011

Croydon Road Safety are very pleased to be working with Royal Russell and JEDS Driving School in improving driving standards for young adults. This joint venture has allowed us to provide a solid foundation for students at the school who want to improve their awareness in both theory and driving techniques. Safe driving is the key and it is with this in mind that the students have gained valuable knowledge, equipping them for later life.

This is a great opportunity for young people who are eager to develop their skills prior to taking their driving test.

The overall programme includes a number of road safety disciplines that are not usually undertaken elsewhere. So this is a brilliant opportunity for students attending Royal Russell School to improve their overall driver awareness skills. We are hopeful that other Croydon students will take up this opportunity and get involved in what has proved an excellent course.

The process is quite comprehensive and allows each student to build up their awareness and knowledge in a professional set up. The course is enhanced by established and fully qualified driving instructors whose aims are to ensure a greater understanding of driving techniques and safety.

The ten week theory course is provided by the JEDS Driving Instructor Team. They add a substantial amount of information to the package to ensure that a greater understanding of the theory test is achieved. A wealth of information is passed to the student to increase safety awareness, hazard perception as well as being comfortable with theory test requirements.

What we have at Royal Russell School is quite unique. It epitomises all that is good about learning to drive in a professional and competent manner. Society as a whole benefit by having safer drivers on the road, whilst the student themselves have a far greater awareness and knowledge, before they reach the driving test stage.

Royal Russell School students who have taken the Young Drivers course and then pass their practical test with JEDS Driving School and wish to further boost their driving skills (and reduce their car insurance quotes) Croydon Council will provide each student with a bursary to help with the costs of Pass Plus.
