So to help mitigate this, we’ve developed and supported an array of programs and technologies: all designed to encourage safer behaviour on the roadways, for both experienced and novice drivers.
One key example is Ford Driving Skills for Life (Ford DSFL). This innovative and award-winning education program is free and with expert training provided by professional instructors, helps newly licensed drivers improve their motoring skills.
- Recognising hazards on the road
- Advanced car control
- Judging speed and space
- Minimising and handling distractions.
The initiative is designed to teach young people skills beyond those they learn in standard driver education programs. And since launch, we’ve invested over $10.5 million to provide free, hands-on training to more than 6,100 young drivers in Belgium, Romania, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the U.K. and Russia.
