OUR MOST COMMON FAQS

WHAT AGES ARE THESE DRIVING EXPERIENCESS 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 inform us about any disabilities or learning difficulties in advance.

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY OF THE DRIVING LESSON EVENT?

We ask that you arrive 10 to 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.

 

HOW DO I BOOK?

You can choose your Under 17 Driving Experience start time and length through the links on either the Driving Experiences or Book Now pages.

HOW MUCH DO THE DRIVING EXPERIENCES COST?

The cost for instruction from the Driving Instructor, and a contribution to the use of the dual control car and the hire of the venue is:

  • 30 minutes in a dual controlled car: £39

  • 45 minutes in a dual controlled car: £57

  • 60 minutes in a dual controlled car: £74

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY?
