Our guide to 60 minute Young Driver Experience
With the help of an expert instructor, you’ll get behind the wheel of the latest dual-control Vauxhall Corsa SE Premium, learning how to start, drive, navigate corners, brake, change gear and even reverse park. You’ll be on a simulated road experience with junctions, roundabouts, steering areas and more.
Awarded the prestigious Honest John ‘Best Car Experience’ in 2017, you’re in the right place to get you on the right track for a future on the road! You’ll even receive a Personalised Drive Diary to record your progress, and there are plenty of viewing areas for your friends and family to watch you in action!
What happens on the day?
On arrival at your chosen Young Driver venue, you’ll check in with your youngster. From there it’s into the driving seat of a brand new dual control Vauxhall Corsa SE Premium for a fun 60-minute lesson including a safety briefing, going through all they should expect out on the course and how to stay safe behind the wheel. The lessons start with the driving basics unless they've driven before in which case the lesson can be adapted to their skill level.
At the end of their lesson, your child will receive a Drive Diary with a record of their progress.
