Role
Concept & art direction Client: Volkswagen Agency: TMF

Goal
One of the main ‘events’ for young people between the ages of 16 and 22, is getting their driver’s license. Volkswagen wants to claim this important moment and launch the new Volkswagen Driver’s License concept, aiming at students and owners of driving schools.

Concept
For young people getting their driver’s license is a big step in their life. But even though it will bring them more freedom, they mostly see it as a struggle. Therefore it would be better to focus on the final goal and make the road to get there more fun. In License to Liberty - shown on TMF in the summer of 2009 – we gave contestants a chance to get their driver’s license. A driving instructor in a Volkswagen took them on ‘one long driving lesson’ straight to their final destination – a holiday location!
Results 
The show generated 200 leads of driving schools that wanted to become Volkswagen-driving schools. More than 450 Volkswagen-driving schools took part. Volkswagen agreed to a new series of License to Liberty in 2010. Other countries have also shown their interest in the format
