Be Wiser Insurance

A course orchestrated by automobile manufacturer Nissan is attempting to cut down incidents of vehicle crime.

Prison officers Neil Dainty and Dave Phelan are attempting to teach young motorists the implications of a life breaking the law.

In doing so, it may be that the number of car insurance claims made falls, leading to a similar reduction in the cost of policies.

But Nissan has stated that its aim is to "keep youngsters on the straight and narrow after their time in prison".

Accreditation for the programme has been received from the Open College Network while the Prison Service has also commented on the firm's efforts.

Nissan is also offering basic motor skills training should offenders wish to pursue a career in the industry once they are back in society.

Statistics from the Home Office show that there has been a 51 per cent fall in vehicle crime from 1997.
