Who do you know who is ready to get behind the wheel, but too young to get on the road?
If your daughter or son is ready to make the move to the driving seat, have a look at what we have for them - our driving lessons for under 17s have been specifically designed with them in mind!
WHAT DO WE HAVE TO OFFER?
Driving lessons for those under 17 - specifically designed to build confidence, while developing the basic skills of car control, observation and awareness.
Our aim is to provide a safe but fun learning environment, to prepare under 17s for on-road driving lessons once they turn 17.
Plus we have a few other other sessions to offer you too!
IS IT SAFE?
Our specially designed driving lessons are provided in carefully selected spacious venues, where under 17s can learn the basics of car control away from public roads.
All our Driving Instructors are registered with the DVSA, have fully insured dual control cars, and are experienced in providing driving lessons in a wide range of situations.
WHO ARE KC UNDER 17 DRIVING?

We are supported at our driving lesson event days by our team of qualified and experienced Driving Instructors, and also by Catherine Caunter, our Lead Welfare Officer / Designated Safeguarding Officer.
OUR MOST COMMON FAQS
WHAT AGES ARE THESE DRIVING EXPERIENCES SUITABLE FOR?
Our driving lessons have been designed for young people from 14 years old, but as a parent or guardian you are the best judge of if they are suitable for your young person.
For practical reasons the minimum height is approx. 4ft 8" / 1.5m tall.
Please let us know about any disabilities or learning difficulties in advance.
ON THE DAY OF THE DRIVING EVENT?
We ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your driving lesson is due to start, so we have time to meet you properly.
The young person and those with them will be introduced to their Driving Instructor, and the driving lesson will begin.
A parent or guardian needs to stay on-site or close by for the duration of the activity.
WHY ARE THE PRICES HIGHER THAN FOR NORMAL DRIVING LESSONS?
Provisional licence holders age 17+ are allowed to learn to drive on public roads, so driving lessons charges cover income for the Driving Instructor and a contribution for the use of their dual control car.
Those age under 17 are not allowed to drive on public roads, so as well as the costs above there is also a contribution for the hire of a suitable spacious venue.
