Good Egg Safety, which campaigns for better safety knowledge among young drivers, today announced that it is upgrading its UK programme, in the wake of claims that the government is delaying the Graduated Driving Licence (GDL) until after the General Election. Good Egg has appointed Gill Starkie as the programme’s National Education and Training Manager. Good Egg’s new drivers programme has been extensively deployed in schools in Scotland, backed by 19 year old racing driver Christie Doran, and is now looking to extend across England and Wales.
Chief Executive Jan James said today: “We’re bitterly disappointed that the government hasn’t brought forward the Graduated Driving Licence, and now looks like it won’t before the General Election. Building better road safety into the driving test will save lives. I don’t understand why that isn’t a priority.
