On 17 June, FIA Member Club Koninklijke Nederlandse Toeristenbond (ANWB Netherlands) held its very first national Best Young Driver competition called “ANWB Roadmaster” in Lelystad. The Best Young Driver Contest aims to promote road safety and test young drivers’ skills related to traffic rules, first aid, road safety, and vehicles’ technical aspects.

ANWB, best young driver competition

1,350 participants joined the preliminary round, and were required to complete an online quiz about road traffic rules and practices. The top 10 contestants proceeded to the final round and had to complete six different practical challenges on track.

The winner of the final competition received the Grand Prize – a Honda E car, which he will be able to drive for free for one year.

ANWB thanked FIA Member Club Avto-Moto Zveza Slovenije (AMZS Slovenia) for all the guidance and experience that was shared with them in organising the event.

This year, FIA Region I’s International Best Young Driver Contest will be held in October in Madrid. The event is supported by the FIA Road Safety Grants Programme.
