"By Using a structured methodology, the programme develops safe attitudes and behaviours while introducing the technical skills of driving.
I was extremely impressed by the event and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to be driven safely around the course by some young drivers who only a week before had never been behind the wheel. The benefits of Pathfinder are obvious not just in terms of road safety but also in boosting the confidence of the young people - and their parents, some of whom believed that they would never be able to drive. "
James Plaskitt MP (Labour, Warwick & Leamington 1997 - 2010)
