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.
