The MasterDrive Youth Driver Programme (MYDP) is designed to provide more advanced training to young, new drivers on the road. These drivers will learn about all the aspects that will make them confident, safe and capable drivers.
The MYDP provides a unique opportunity for parents to ensure young drivers can access more comprehensive training. It fills the gap between the traditional K53 training and advanced driver training at a more affordable cost for parents.
This training will teach new drivers how to raise their awareness levels so that they can understand more than what was learnt at the start. It will help new drivers better understand the machine that they now control and why certain safety skills are so important. It also includes theory that is often overlooked when learning to drive such as what warning lights mean and how to react should one light up.
Practical elements also form a major part of the course. This will cover a variety of issues from something that seems as simple as changing a tyre (but which often proves quite a different story late at night when you have never actually done it yourself) to more complex and essential safety lessons on issues such as brake distance control.
Many of the issues are of vital importance in creating safe and competent drivers on the road. The difficulty, however, is that before now many of these lessons were often only learnt when faced with them in real-life situations on the road. The MYDP course can provide an opportunity to experience these lessons with experienced instructors by your side and in a controlled environment.
