Gary Lineker to help young drivers
March 21, 2012
Former footballer and host of BBC's Match of the Day is to help teach younger people to become better drivers with the release of new education software.
He is teaming up with not-for-profit road safety organisation, a2om CIC, to launch the program called Drive iQ.
It helps individuals before they get behind the wheel for their first lesson all the way up to when they take their driving test.
Brain training modules are used to prepare young people mentally for driving so that they develop appropriate behavioural skills on the road that are regularly missed by normal teaching methods.
Lineker is taking an active role in launching the product, including attending Old Trafford for a special launch event.
He said: "As a father with sons making their way out on to the road, I want to be sure they’re as prepared as they can be."
Through software such as this, young drivers can become much safer on British roads, which could lead to cheaper car insurance premiums.
