Driving up education standards

There is no doubt at all that there are two problems which society faces.

1) That keeping young people in education is hard.  But the benefits are clear.  Especially when there are few jobs for the young.

2) That car insurance is going up and up and up and especially for young people.

It is interesting that given that nearly everybody learns to drive, the one thing that is not part of the curriculum is driving.  Why is that?

Why would you not offer all A Level students free driving lessons as part of the course.  In the last year of A Levels you would be given free weekly driving lessons.  By doing it for free then more lessons (and perhaps go beyond minimum driving standards for the test) could be undertaken by the student leaving them more experienced.  Thus reducing the number of accidents, thus reducing the insurance costs.
