Megadrive is a multi-agency project between Capita Symonds' road safety team, Trading Standards, Red Cross, Drugaid, Drugs and Families Support, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, the Institute of Advanced Motorists, the Gwent Association of Approved Driving Instructors, Welch Vauxhall of Newport and the five unitary authorities in south east Wales.

The initiative is aimed at 16 - 17 year olds and is designed to educate prospective young drivers about the responsibility of driving a vehicle and give them a positive attitude before they get behind the wheel.

New young drivers between the ages of 17 and 24 are involved in a disproportionately large number of road accidents.

The Megadrive initiative aims to address this disparity by developing good driving skills and highlighting some of the most risky situations that young drivers may encounter.
