EFA new partner Jellylearn
“We are proud and excited to be joining the EFA as an Affiliate member. I am confident that by combining our skills, expertise and knowledge we can put a very strong proposition to the EU as to what the benefits to EU road safety would be of introducing Hazard Perception (HP) testing as part of a driver licensing system. Every day driving instructors have the challenge of teaching learner drivers a wide range of skills and knowledge to be able to stay safe on the road. Hazard Perception is one of those key skills yet it is very difficult to simulate many of the hazards a young driver will encounter whilst taking lessons. Therefore, using high quality content for training and testing purposes to simulate multiple hazards should underpin and embed this knowledge and there by improve road safety.”
