Young male drivers overconfident

IAM research reveals that nearly two thirds of young male drivers think they are more skilled than the average driver

The research uses DfT statistics from 2010 on road accident causalities. 30% of car occupant fatalities are in the 17-24 age range but this age group makes up only 8% of all licence holders.

The IAM suggest that curfews and licence restrictions for newly qualified drivers should be introduced to allow them to gain the necessary experience.
