Motor Vehicle and Road User Studies

Teaching Staff


For many years it has been accepted that our educational system must equip young people not only with the knowledge to pass examinations but with the skills necessary to cope with everyday life after school. In that context one of the most important life skills is the ability to cope with road, and driving conditions as they exist in Northern Ireland today.

The loss of young lives is both tragic and largely avoidable. The importance of road safety teaching has been clearly recognised by the listing of the subject within the Education Reform Order (NI) 1989.

Each year the number of road deaths continues to rise. This subject gives pupils the opportunity of a greater insight in the reality of being a road user both now and in the future.
