YOUNG DRIVER™ - Read all about it!
YOUNG DRIVER™ offers driving lessons to 10 – 17 year olds.
Tuition is provided by highly qualified driving instructors in brand new Vauxhall Corsas at 60 UK venues. A whole road system is created on private land, to help the drivers learn everything from changing gears and parking to using roundabouts and manoeuvring a slalom.
Lessons mirror those taken on the road at 17, but give youngsters the chance to take their time without any pressure to pass a test. A personalised Drive Diary charts how they get on, and is useful to pass on to their driving instructor at 17.
Motoring expert and presenter Quentin Willson supports YOUNG DRIVER™, saying: "Both my son, age 17, and daughter, age 11, have had driving lessons with Young Driver. I think it's vital - it's a road safety revolution in the making.
The scheme was launched in 2009. There are now more than 60 venues across the UK. Driving tuition is available for disabled youngsters and Young Driver can also cater for birthday parties. Thirty and sixty minute lessons are available and must be booked in advance.
YOUNG DRIVER™ has also created a range of special cars for 5 - 10 year olds to drive at various locations around the UK.
Called “Firefly”, the two-seater cars were especially styled for YOUNG DRIVER™ by veteran car designer Chris Johnson. Firefly cars feature independent suspension, disc brakes, twin electric motors and rack and pinion steering - making them drive and handle just like real cars on the road!
The cars are two seaters with an adjustable driver's seat, so youngsters can be accompanied by mum or dad or a friend! With a top speed of 10 mph, parents can also use a remote control cut off switch in case of emergency. Visit the website at www.youngdriver.com for full details of the different prices and packages that are on offer.
Lesson vouchers make a perfect birthday present and you can book a birthday party at any one of our venues. All guests will get to drive in one of the latest dual control Vauxhall Corsa with a government approved instructor.
Nothing builds your confidence more than getting behind the wheel for real.
