Underage driving - made legal!
Children and teenagers as young as 11 can sample life behind the wheel for the first time with YoungDrive! - our driving school with a difference.
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 a DSA-approved instructor 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 a DSA- approved 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.
