The Government is "carrying out further research" to fully understand why so many young drivers are involved in road accidents.
Speaking after the RAC found almost one in eight injurious accidents involved a driver aged 17-19-years-old, the Department of Transport said:
We know the number of young people being killed on our roads is far too high, which is why we want to do all we can to tackle this issue.
It is vital we strike the right balance between safety and not unduly restricting the freedom of young drivers, which is why we are carrying out further research to fully understand the issues before setting out how we proceed.
