Who has the highest risk of crashing?

The first 6 months of being on a P1 licence is statistically the most dangerous period of a driver’s life. The potential of a road crash significantly increases the moment you successfully obtain your Provisional licence. In order to help prevent this, the LTrent Safer Drivers Course and the Hazard Perception Test (HPT) will help learner drivers to learn safe driving techniques.
