Andy's Words to New Drivers.
Thank you for coming to my Foundation website.
I want to speak clearly and honestly to all the new drivers who visit here.
Are You A New Driver?
I consider a new driver to be anyone with less than 5 years of driving experience, regardless of age. Some teenagers think this is a long time, but statistically it’s really not. Vehicle insurance companies keep very tight controls on when they drop rates for drivers and they do not consider a new driver to be much less of a risk until they are over 25 years of age.
Driver’s Ed. will help you obtain your license, but having a license does not automatically make anybody a good driver.
My goal in speaking to new drivers has always been to give you understandable and useful information that I believe can really help you while driving on the streets. It is the kind of information that most Driver’s Ed. Courses will not provide. Because driver education has to teach you how to pass a test, my information can concentrate on survival information.

What is the difference between the information I provide and a Driver’s Ed. Course?
The information I provide is knowledge that all drivers need but most likely do not have. It is the kind of information that is used constantly by highly trained driving professionals, at all times as they drive. If this information keeps the experts safer, then it can certainly help you, as a new driver to be safer! Back to Top
As a new driver, you are expected to be in a couple of little wrecks or fender benders…right?
It is not written anywhere that just because you’re a new driver you’re supposed to get into wrecks. However, it is no secret that driving collisions and crashes are the number one killer of teenagers; there are over 6,000 traffic deaths and 500,000 serious injuries of 13 – 19 year olds that occur every year on US roads.
The goal of the Andy Pilgrim Foundation © is to help change these statistics for the better; I strongly believe that good information, presented in an understandable way is vital for new drivers!
The information in our DVD is completely up to date and not found in most driver education curriculums. The Driving Zone 2 © has been picked up by thousands of driver education teachers and helps supplement their mandated curriculums. The knowledge contained in the DVD sits on top of the curriculum and provides teachers with vital information that all new drivers need to help them survive the critical early years of driving.
Please be part of the solution to the epidemic of distracted driving, never drive distracted. Back to Top
