Therapy Seat

As a team that provides learner driver insurance to learner drivers all over the UK we’ve seen the challenges facing people looking to get on the road over recent years, and in particular how mental health can affect people. So, earlier this year after talking to a group of learner drivers we decided to do something about it! 

Veygo therapy seat, learner driver insurance

What is the Veygo Therapy Seat and why is it important?

Learner drivers spend around 25 hours, on average, with their instructors while learning to drive, while as many as a 86% of a recent survey said they open up about mental health to their driving instructors . So, it’s no surprise that more than half (52%) of learner drivers are calling for driving instructors to receive dedicated mental health training.

At Veygo, we have answered that call by launching a dedicated training course for driving instructors up and down the country whose students open up to them about their mental health, delivered by Samaritans. The new ‘Therapy Seat’ programme will see instructors receive tailored training to help them recognise signs of vulnerability, initiate conversations about mental health, and signpost to support.
