Benefits


Students of the Pathfinder scheme have been statistically proven to be much less likely to be involved in an accident, and are more advanced drivers.

accident rate

Using the education that we give attendees, they have a better chance of staying alive. Using the statistics within the survey we performed, we can show our members have a lower accident and conviction rate compared to their peers.

We are the only under 17 (pre-licence) driver training organisation whose training programme is accredited by the Institute of Advanced Motorists.
