SQA Safe Road User Award (SQA)

Why this award?

This Award was developed with the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

The aim of the Safe Road User Award is to build positive attitudes to road use and to help young people take responsibility for using roads safely. Becoming proficient road users at an early stage will help set these attitudes and behaviours for life. This, in turn, should result in fewer deaths and serious injuries among road users.

Who is it for?

The Award is targeted primarily at young people from 14 to 16 years of age. This is a group which will have some experience as road users as pedestrians, on bicycles and as passengers in cars and other vehicles. They have, however, reached an age where they are likely to become more frequent road users and to use the roads in different capacities. They may, for example, be preparing to learn to drive a car, or a motor cycle or other vehicle and may be passengers in vehicles driven by friends who have reached driving age. The award is not, however, confined to this particular age group and could be used as an introductory course for any group who wish to develop their road sense.

What time commitment is required?

40 hours positive attitudes 40 hours how to use the roads
