The 2young2die campaign does not presume all young people want to, or will, drive. It does not teach driving skills. Instead, it helps young people consider the carnage and global warming caused by driving, their options as drivers, passengers or non-drivers, and encourages them to campaign to end dangerous, unnecessary driving.
An important starting point is getting young people together in workshops that are led by volunteer ambassadors. This gives young people the opportunity to view hard-hitting online resources and have group discussions to explore the issues among themselves, including solutions, and start to plan their own campaigns for their own communities.
You can become one of our network of volunteer ambassadors, delivering such workshops, by attending the low cost, one-day 2young2die course. No experience is necessary to attend the course, although you do need a passion for the cause, and the confidence to go on and lead inclusive and inspiring workshops with young people that stimulate campaigning.

The road safety charity Brake and insurers Direct Line recently commissioned a survey in which 1,000 drivers showed support for a minimum learning period to be introduced.
Approximately 85% of all drivers supported the idea, including just under 70% of drivers under the age of 25. Seven out of ten drivers support a zero tolerance on drink-driving among young drivers while 90% support lessons on motorways in poor conditions.

Just recently, Ayaz Mohammed, one of our driving instructors in Birmingham, recently passed his part three test of Instructional Ability.
Ayaz won’t mind you knowing that this was his third attempt at the exam, the pressure was now on him to pass. On previous attempts he had narrowly missed being successful but he knew that he had the benefit of having a trainee licence which gave him the opportunity to put all he was learning into practice with his pupils ensuring that they too were having driving lessons with an instructor who was using the latest techniques.
Here’s what Ayaz has to say about the advantages of having a trainee licence with Surepass.
If you’d like further details on having a trainee instructors licence, earning while you’re learning, (and you don’t need to have been trained by us) then please call our team today on 0800 08 38 441.
