Prove you’re Ireland’s Safest Young Driver and WIN a year's free driving!

Calling all young Irish motorists: how would you like to win a year’s free driving just by sticking to the rules of the road?

Young drivers across the country are being urged to sign up to take part in a major road safety challenge which could earn one of them the title of 'Ireland's Safest Young Driver' and the chance to drive free for a year.

The competition, which will put the driving skills of more than 60 young drivers from across Ireland to the test using innovative in-car 'black box' technology, is organised by leading accident services provider CRASH and supported by the Hooper Dolan Insurance Group.

Young drivers aged between 17 and 21 who make it to the shortlist – which will include young men and women from every county in Ireland – will have their vehicles fitted with Ingenium Dynamics, an award-winning driver behaviour management system which will monitor and help to improve their driving habits over a 10-week period as part of a wider campaign to promote road safety awareness.

The young driver with the best overall driving score will win a total prize fund worth €4,000 to help keep them driving over the next full year.

This includes €1,500 towards insurance, €1,500 towards fuel costs and €1,000 towards other motoring costs. Each provincial winner will also receive €500 towards motoring costs.

Mayo GAA star Cillian O’Connor, who is supporting the competition, said:

"As a young driver myself, I know it is difficult to get on the road due to the high cost of motoring.

“As a sports person I am fully aware of the need to monitor and improve each area of your performance. Ingenium Dynamics does this for driving. I think it would be great if new drivers were able to prove they are good drivers and get rewarded with lower insurance.”
