Under 17s driving experience

A chance to learn before you take driving lessons

Under 17s driving experience

We're now offering 13 to 16-year-olds the chance to learn the basics of driving in a safe and controlled environment – away from the stress and traffic of busy roads – under the guidance of one of our experienced and qualified driving instructors.

This is an ideal learning experience before starting to take driving lessons.

On the day

Participants will be given a full safety briefing and introduction to the car and its controls. After that they will be able to negotiate a small circuit under the guidance of the instructor, and have the opportunity to practise some essential driving skills:

  • moving off and stopping
  • steering and cornering
  • changing gears
  • manoeuvring

Young drivers must be over 1.5 metres tall, and able to read a new-style car number plate from 20 metres.

This is an ideal opportunity to start to learn to drive, and like most learning activities, is best achieved early. The many skills of controlling a car, once mastered, become almost automatic. And these skills can only come with the practise and confidence of driving experience. This stress-free and controlled experience is a great way to begin.

Choose your date and book now

Sessions will be offered in several UK venues, and tickets are now on sale for £59 (including VAT) for one hour. Places are limited, so if you have teenage children, book now to give them a head start to becoming a safe driver.
