    The Experience

    YoungDrive! is open to anyone aged 11 and over, allowing your youngster to gain their first experience behind the wheel much earlier than they would on the open road. They will be taught the basics of driving by one of our elite team of highly trained instructors within the confines of the race circuit, creating a safe and stress-free environment, perfect for their first taste of driving.

    They will be in control of a dual controlled MINI ONE as they practice essential car control and build up their confidence, which will prove vital for when they hit the road for real. Safety is paramount but the emphasis is on having fun!

    The cars are fitted with dual controls and pupils will be accompanied by an instructor and will share the car with up to two others.

    Please note: The YoungDrive! voucher includes cancellation cover free of charge. Spectators are permitted for no additional charge.

Overall I found it to be a great experience and really good preparation for learning to drive. My instructor was really friendly and helpful, and a lot was squeezed into the forty minutes

We purchased this for my son's 11th birthday and just wanted to say what a fantastic experience. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We were greeted on arrival by a lovely lady who explained everything to our son and listened to and answered his questions.

He then had his briefing and got into a mini with the instructor and two other children. For the two hours they were out on the track he said it was amazing and he wants to do it again.

Would highly recommend.

Attended today with both my sons who were pretty apprehensive. Staff soon put them at ease. The experience was better than we all expected. The staff were brilliant and very informative with the parents about the activity. Both my children now want to go on young driver plus- thank you all for a great time!!!

I had a relly good time driving the car at Bandshatch. I thought it would be much harder but it wasn't bad atall. The instructor was relly friendly even when I went wrong and made me relax so I could do it again.

Daughter enjoyed the drive

My daughter enjoyed the drive, although she did have to share the car with other children. She seemed to get the hang of a few things, but I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to get any photos of her in the car as I only brought my camera phone and it couldn’t see her clearly enough. If my younger son does it I will bring a proper camera.

My son will start learning to drive in a few months so this was a perfect way for him to start. He really enjoyed it and it looked as though he picked up quite a bit. I had a nice relaxing time watching him go round so I was happy too!
