Safe Driving

Drunk and Drug Driving

In the last 50 years road casualties caused by drink driving have fallen dramatically, but in 2014, there were still 240 deaths due to drink driving – accounting for 14% of all road fatalities. By drinking and driving, you risk your life, those of your passengers and others on the road.

Tiredness and driving

Studies have shown that drivers don’t fall asleep without warning. Drivers who fall asleep at the wheel have often tried to fight off drowsiness by opening a window, or by turning up the radio. This doesn't work for long.

Keep to the speed limit

The difference of a few miles per hour can mean the difference between life and death. The faster someone is driving, the less time they have to stop if something unexpected happens.

If you kill someone while speeding, you will have to live with the long-term emotional consequences.

Speed limits are there for a reason.

Mobile Phones

Using a mobile phone, sat nav or any similar device whilst driving means that the driver’s attention is distracted from the road.

PCA SAFE DRIVING PROGRAMME

In 2006 the PCA launched it's Safe Driving programme. As part
of this programme, the PCA is offering players the opportunity to
take the ROSPA Advance Driving Test. Research indicates that
drivers trained to advanced standard are 20% less likely to be
involved in an accident. Apart from being safer on the road you
could also benefit from:

  • Lowering your insurance premiums
  • reducing levels of driving stress
  • improved fuel consumption
  • less wear and tear on your vehicle

Learning to drive?

If you've yet to take your driving test the PCA will pay for your driving lessons up to a maximum of £250. Just pay for your lessons, keep your receipts, fill out an Education funding form and send them all back to us and we will reimburse you.

Pass Plus

To improve your driving and insurance premiums, newly qualified drivers can take the Pass Plus course. This can be taken any time within 12 months of passing your test and consists of 6 hours of on road training. The PCA will pay for half of this course.
