Take the wheel!
For those of you who can’t wait until your 17th Birthday to get behind a wheel of a car, then we have the perfect solution. First Drive is an exciting and safe way to learn to drive a car on a specially designated area.
After an introduction to the rudiments of driving it will be into the car where each child will have 2 sessions driving of around 15 minutes each. The driver is assessed individually and the course is tailored to each individual’s requirements.
When not driving the children will be watching and learning from the next driver to maximise the learning and hopefully to have a laugh along the way. The aim is to get each pupil to be able to pull away smoothly, steer correctly and stop safely, subject to capability drivers will also be shown gear changing, using mirrors, positioning the car and even reversing.
