This training programme is designed to provide young drivers (14+ years of age) with their first opportunity to get a feel for what driving is all about and simply enjoy the adventure of being in the driving seat. It also provides 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, manoeuvring and forming positive driving attitudes that can improve their safety on the road.
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)
