Young drivers in the Midlands countryside are twice as likely to have a serious road accident than those living in cities.
A study by the National Federation of Young Farmers found Lincolnshire to be the third worst place for accidents. Today motorists from across the region got advanced training to help them prepare for dangerous conditions.
It is a smash one young farmer from Herefordshire was lucky to walk away from.
Robert Williams, from Hereford was lucky to walk away from the crash he was involved in.
He wrote off his Landrover earlier this year by crashing into a telegraph pole.
Today he was one of 50 young rural drivers from across the region on a special driving course at the Prodrive race circuit near Kenilworth in Warwickshire.
The sessions are run by training company Drive Doctors, to simulate tricky road conditions that the young drivers could encounters on rural roads.
Instructors took the youngsters out on the slippery track in their own cars to see how they coped when they entered a skid.
ITV News reporter Chris Halpin also tried his hand at keeping a test car under control.
Here owner of the company Mark Johnson explains the importance of ABS brake systems.
Today was a chance for the drivers to have a go at being safely out of control.
The latest figures show more than 2,000 young drivers in the countryside were involved in a collision, where someone was either killed or seriously injured.
The survey also found they were two thirds more likely to crash on a 60mph road. 60% are more likely to risk drinking then driving.
The risks today's drivers were taught to look out for were muddy or icy conditions, over-taking and speed.
Organisers say most of the fatalities are down to age and inexperience.
It is hoped more young drivers in the countryside will heed the warnings, and stay safe on the rural roads.
