The UK Young Drivers Survey: Full Data Breakdown

At The Car Loan Warehouse, we conducted an online study to find out what Brits think of proposed measures designed to reduce the number of traffic accidents involving young drivers. With options covering everything from late night curfews and probationary periods to black box systems and motorway bans, we wanted to find out whether these are measures the British public support or reject.

After being asked which of 6 measures faced by young drivers they supported, if any, 1088 participants across the UK gave us their insight on the measures – voting for any they felt were justified, and offering alternative solutions of their own.
