Barnsley college students star in driving test awareness campaign

Have your say

Students from Barnsley College are to star in a national series of videos and leaflets aimed at young drivers preparing for their driving tests.

Young people taking performing arts, film and TV courses passed auditions held by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.

They will appear in YouTube videos, the GOV.UK website and print and online publications as part of the initiative.

The DVSA also plans to include students in script development for videos.

Joe Dodgson, 20, said: “This is a really exciting opportunity as most of my studies are based around stage acting so it will help me to gain a broader range of skills.”
