Senior optometrist Peadar Kearney visited local school Holy Cross College to meet sixth year students involved in the Specsavers backed young driver initiative, New Driver NI.
Specsavers stores in Northern Ireland are a partner with the programme, which is rolling out an advice and information programme to Years 13 and 14 students at secondary schools throughout Northern Ireland.
Practical information for learners and new drivers
It provides practical tips and information for both learners and those who have recently passed their test to help them stay safe on the roads. Engaging directly with young people, New Driver NI delivers drive safe presentations at school as well as offering online content.
Good vision and safe driving
New Driver NI Manager Stephen Savage said,‘Driving safely has never been more important and we aim to provide our young people and their parents with essential, invaluable and useful advice and information to help new drivers be sensible and proficient now and in the future.
‘With Specsavers as our partner we also aim to drive home the link between good vision and safe driving.’
