The Home Office collects data on police recorded offences, including a group of offences classed as Death or serious injury – unlawful driving. These are published quarterly by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). The latest figures for the year ending March 2021 can be accessed here:

The Home Office does not collect data on the age of drivers in these offences, or the number of drivers in these offences who did not hold a valid licence at the time of the offence.
