Drivewise Borders

Road safety scheme

Drivewise Borders is the name for a series of road safety initiatives.

It provides a variety of driving courses in the Borders - basic driving tuition for under 17s and advanced driving for 17 to 25 year olds.

We support Drivewise Borders alongside partners Police Scotland, IAM RoadSmart, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Scottish Ambulance Service, Transport Scotland, former racing champion John Cleland and Volvo.

Over a number of years, we have worked with a range of partners as well as various road user groups to promote road safety in order to improve the quality and standard of driving and riding on local roads, by increasing road user awareness of the risks on the roads and providing better driving skills.
