Reviewer: 12 year old Ross and his mum Cheryl
What they say: You can’t get a driving licence in the UK until you’re 17 but now, thanks to Young Driver, if you’re 11 or over, you can learn to drive at one of our UK centres.
Research shows that it is a lack of driving experience – not a lack of years on the planet – that causes 1 in 5 newly qualified drivers to crash within 6 months of passing their test. Something had to be done to reduce this frightening statistic – and so we started Young Driver!
Are you over 11 and 1.42m/4ft8+ tall? Then we will put you behind the wheel of a brand new dual control ŠKODA! Let one of our fully qualified ADI driving instructors teach you how to start, drive, brake, corner, change gear, stop and even reverse – all on your first lesson! Move your life up a gear, learn to drive now!
What we say: “Check in was swift and efficient and we were handed a driving record for the instructor to tick off various aspects of what had been covered during the lesson.
The instructor, Paul, came to meet us in the waiting area and promptly took Ross to the waiting car. They had about 10 cars in total, some manual and some automatic. All cars had dual controls. After less than 5 minutes behind the wheel, adjusting the seat, mirrors etc, they were off and driving! The top of the multi storey car park provided a large driving area with various cones providing obstacles.
There were children of all ages taking part from 11-17 and lessons ranged from 30-60 minutes. They also do birthday parties starting from £99 for 6 children – great value and something a bit different.
So, at 12 years old Ross completed an hours driving experience of which he spent at least 50 minutes driving at various speeds, stopping, starting and negotiating small obstacles. He had the most amazing time. The instructor was patient, kind, funny and professional. Ross can’t wait to have another go!!!!
I cannot praise this company enough. They were absolutely amazing. Ross had the most amazing time!”
Young Driver has 27 venues across the country and prices for lessons & vouchers start from just £31.99 – for more information visit www.youngdrivers.eu
