Motorvate has won the 2007 ‘Investing in Young people Award‘ run by the Coventry Evening Telegraph and the Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce.

Our course, aimed at youngsters from the age of 13 and uses their interest in cars and motorbikes to develop numeracy and social skills. So far we have helped over 3000 teenagers, including those who lack motivation and who may be close to exclusion from school.
Many candidates on our course proudly testify that the course has helped to give their lives a boost.

As well as teaching safe-driving practices it imparts a knowledge of the impact crime can have on victims.

Motorvate was also a finalist for the award in 2006
