Lineker promotes online driving aid
Former England footballer Gary Lineker is promoting an online training aid for young drivers.
The Match Of The Day presenter will launch Drive iQ for the not-for-profit firm a2omCIC (pronounced "atom kick").
The community interest company said Drive iQ represents a new approach for novice drivers offering expert driving education to use before getting behind the wheel, right through to taking the driving test.
The e-learning course guides young drivers through a series of online modules which help anticipate danger, control emotions and assess risk. It also addresses night time and poor weather driving in both urban and rural settings.
The former Spurs, Barcelona, Everton and Leicester striker has four sons and is aware that car insurance for the under-25s can be expensive.
He said: "As a father with sons making their way out on to the road, I want to be sure they're as prepared as they can be."
