Practice makes perfect and safer driving

Comment from Crispin Moger, CEO at Marmalade, the providers of cars and insurance for young people, for use in an article on young driving clubs.


He says: “Young driving clubs are a good idea as they offer lots of practice for young people behind the wheel. We know that experience makes safer drivers and we believe in making it as easy as possible for young people to get the practice they need. These clubs can offer invaluable experience for their students, building their confidence and knowledge of road safety from a very young age.


We find that use of our black box technology encourages more sensible and safer driving, in fact 1 in 20 of our customers will be involved in an accident months within passing their tests, compared with a staggering 1 in 5 nationally. That’s a big reduction and something that we’re really proud of.


I strongly believe that it is a lack of real driving experience that contributes the most to causing accidents and anything that encourages young people to consider their own safety, and that of others on the road can only be a good thing.”
