This training programme is designed to provide young drivers aged 16-17 years old with a head start in the lead up to gaining their provisional license and getting ready for their regular driving lessons. It aims to improve their understanding of the key foundations of driving including learning the basics of car control, manouevring and forming positive driving attitudes that can improve their safety on the road.
Training is most effective if undertaken 3 to 6 months prior to someone’s 17th birthday. A provisional driving licence is not required.
Headstart sessions are conducted in both Aberdeen or Alford.
“Rachael loved the Headstart lesson. She has already told some of her friends about it. Rachael thought it was a really good that you got 2 hours as she felt that helped to master steering” (Lorna)
"Yes, she had a great time doing the course. She was very nervous at the start having never driven before, but she came away full of confidence and really enjoyed herself. The course was very beneficial. I’ve actually mentioned the course to a few colleagues who think it is a great idea" (Blair)
