Parents have a direct role in young driver education as the ‘family driving instructor’, but often feel unsure of their own ability to teach the right driving skills. Even at an early age, parents have a constant indirect role, as young pre-drivers observe their own parents’ driving style and so learn driving habits, both good and bad.
Therefore, we want to provide the right tools to parents, schools and teachers to inspire better learning. With this in mind, we have partnered with the DIA (Driving Instructors Association) to create our Driving Academy Parent Pack which includes tips, advice and games to play with your children, encouraging them to think about road safety and driving.
We believe that children are currently offered too much, too fast. They learn how to pass the driving test, not how to use the knowledge learnt in real life. At Goodyear, we think parents matter, and it should be the role of parents, carers, teachers or grandparents to help teach road safety from an early age.

We hope you enjoy what we have to offer and work with us to educate our safe young drivers of the future..
