We're now offering 11 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.
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:
Young drivers must be over 1.5 metres tall, and able to read a new-style car number plate from 20.5 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.
To get even more experience behind the wheel before you start taking lessons, you can get discounted prices for booking additional practice sessions:
Sessions will be offered in several UK venues, and tickets are now on sale from £69 (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.
