Keith and Gill are the driving force behind KC Under 17 Driving, supported by Catherine and their team of Driving Instructors.

DRIVING LESSONS FROM AGE 14

Through KC Under 17 Driving Keith and Gill offer driving lessons for those ready to get behind the wheel, but too young to get on the road!

Our driving lessons for under 17s are designed around 4 key areas:

  • Support and guidance for each young person as they start to learn the basics of car control - including the skills of observation, awareness and anticipation

  • Taking opportunities to encourage future drivers to start developing an understanding of driving theory - knowledge essential for becoming a safe and responsible driver 

  • Preparing each young person for the move on to public roads - once they reach their 17th birthday

  • Perhaps most importantly - making learning these essential life-skills a fun, enjoyable and memorable experience!
