Our road safety team are working in partnership with the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) to deliver a free driver assessment course (normal course costs £45) to young drivers who live or drive in York.
The driver assessment:
- is not a test
- is an hour of driving in your car with a trained instructor
- provides tips and guidance on your driving style and how you can improve
- makes you eligible to sign up for the IAM 'Skills for Life' course (for potential savings on your insurance)

Momentum in business
Young drivers are 3 times more likely than their older counterparts to have an accident whilst driving for work.
We encourage businesses and fleet managers to sign up and allow young members of staff (who drive for work in and around York), to take part in the scheme, during work time and using a work vehicle - for further information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Employees of businesses who have already signed up can complete an 'employee application' via: itravelyork.info/momentum.
