SEAT Ibiza used in expanded Young Driver campaign

SEAT has announced an expansion of its successful Young Driver programme.

After receiving high demand for its lessons, the Spanish firm has announced that by the end of this month, young wheelchair users aged 11 years and over will be able to take driving lessons.

The hugely-popular SEAT Ibiza will be used for the programme, which will see those taking part attend lessons in London, Birmingham and Sheffield on October 27th before a nationwide roll-out.

Kim Stanton of SEAT Young Driver, said: "There is overwhelming evidence that early driving experience cuts accidents among young drivers by 40 per cent, and it is great fun for youngsters.

"Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors – SEAT and Admiral – we are not only the first young driver programme with a network of nationwide venues but, now, the first to accommodate wheelchair users."

Sophie Morgan, TV presenter and a contestant on Britain's Missing Top Model, is backing the move and said she "wholeheartedly encourages any initiative aiming to help young drivers be better prepared for the road".
