Drivewise Borders

Road safety scheme for all ages

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

It provides a variety of driving courses for people in the Borders - basic driving tuition for under 17s, advanced driving for 17 to 25 year olds and driving review sessions for over 65s.

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.
