Pre-17 Driving Lessons

Pre 17 driving lessons is a great way to take your first steps behind the wheel of a car, you will be taught about the controls of the car and how to safely drive the car both forward and in reverse gear.

Depending on which venue you visit you will be able to carry out various reversing manoeuvres and the emergency stop once you have reached the required level of skill needed.

Chloe, Gillingham Dorset

I really enjoyed driving and the best part was learning to change gears. Chloe said she will be recommending this event to her friends and would love to come again but she will be turning 17 soon and cant wait to start regular driving lessons.
