Who is the ESDC for?
If you’re a Young driver, your risk of being in an accident is at its greatest. This course teaches you essential driving behaviours to keep you safe whilst driving on the road.
If you’re about to start driving, this course will give you an understanding of best practice driving behaviour, why it’s important and the consequences of poor driving behaviour.
If you’re over 55 you may well have passed your test many years ago. Since then, roads and the rules of the road have changed. This course gives you the confidence to drive safely.
How it works
Log in and watch the easy to follow, engaging video lessons. You can watch them at anytime at your own pace from any internet enabled device. The system remembers your progress.
During the lessons you’ll be asked a few quiz questions to check your understanding. At the end of each Chapter there’s an online assessment. Pass the assessment to progress to the next module.
Once you’ve passed all Assessments, you can view your European Safer Driver Certificate online. Simply email your insurer a unique link to your Certificate to receive your discount.
