A new road safety driving course for young people who live in rural areas is being launched in the Midlands today.
It comes as new figures show young rural drivers are twice as likely to be involved in a collision than young urban drivers.
The National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs and NFU Mutual are working with professional racing drivers to teach young farmers how to control their vehicle if they skid on ice, snow or mud.
The first course is in Kenilworth at the Prodrive Centre today.
