Junior Driving Experiences!
The below driving days are suitable for kids as young as eleven or twelve and whilst giving them the opportunity to learn skills that will only benefit them in future years, they also allow them to sit in the driving seat of some of the best and most powerful cars ever produced. All vehicles are fitted with dual controls and an experienced and qualified instructor will be present in the passenger seat at all-time ensuring your child is in a safe and controlled environment.
There are various options and vehicles to choose from in the below selection. Allow your kids mates to be green with envy by treating your child to a Ferrari driving day, or if you would prefer them to try something a little slower (nonetheless just as much fun) then let them tackle some tough terrain with a slow moving and bumpy riding off road day.
Each session will begin with the normal class safety briefing with other participants present, this normally covers advice on safety, handling techniques, driving theory and an overview of the day.
Next up depending on package and venue, a professional driver might take up to four kids at a time on a familiarisation lap around the circuit showing them the layout and thus to help prepare them.
Next up it will be time for your child to jump behind the wheel, and with a qualified instructor sitting next to them, enjoy a specified number of jumps around the chosen circuit. There is no pressure to drive fast, and all vehicles are modified and include dual brakes so the instructor can remain in control. These experiences are not only designed to be fun but also awarding, and at the same time giving youngsters a head start and more confidence behind the wheel for later on in life.
At the end of the activity, it is common for all young drivers to receive a certificate presentation to take home and show off to family and friends!

“ My 15 year old absolutely loved this! He was a bit reluctant to go fast I almost wish I was behind the wheel instead to take advantage of the opportunity! Staff and instructors were great with kids. Bit of a wait but overall a fantastic day out! Will be coming back for a gift this Christmas! ”
