The Young driver Experience

November 18, 2019

This is a gifted partnership

Creating memories is the best gift you can give, so how about giving a young person the chance to learn to drive – from age five?

With statistics indicating that 1 in 5 young drivers will have an accident within six months of passing their test, adding in lessons like Young Driver sessions to master the basics of setting up the car ready to drive, steering, braking, gear changing etc. all before they get ‘on the road’ can only help to benefit them when they come to complete normal driving lessons.

What do Young Driver lessons offer?

Young Driver offers driving lessons for 10 to 17 year olds at 70 venues across the country, giving youngsters the chance to experience what it’s like behind the wheel of a dual controlled Vauxhall Corsa. Learning on realistic road systems with a fully qualified instructor, as they would at 17, not only is it a fantastic experience they’ll remember forever – it’s also helping them become a safer driver. Research shows early driver tuition reduces the accident rate in newly qualified drivers by a half.

Learners are presented with a Drive Diary so they can track their progress. Lessons start at £36.99.

Young Driver Bentley Flying Spur

As an extra special treat, Young Driver also offers lessons in a luxurious Bentley Flying Spur – mum and dad can even be the ones chauffeured around for a change! With a 6.0-litre, twin-turbo engine which does 0-60mph in just five seconds, driving this beautiful car is an experience to remember.

Lessons start at £49.99.

Under 10s can try the Young Driver Firefly

Under 10s can also get in on the action with Young Driver’s specially created electric Firefly. These 2-seater cars have independent suspension and rack and pinion steering – just like the real thing! Suitable for five to 10 year olds, they can get their first experience behind the wheel and have some fun! They’ll even get their very own driving licence to take away.

Firefly experiences start from £21.99.

Roo’s Young Driver experience

Attending the Young Driver lesson site at the Norfolk Showground in Norwich (one of 65 different venues available). Roo was booked in for a 30-minute driving lesson with her instructor Greg. Lessons can be booked for both 30 and 60 minute sessions, with the option to video the lesson for an additional £14.99 – which is something we did. Take a look at Roo’s Young Driver lesson…

After her lesson had finished Roo emerged from the car with a newfound understanding of how much concentration and practice goes into driving a car. Although she did have an amazing time behind the wheel, changing gears and completing manoeuvres. It is something that she has said that she’s love to do again.
