Headstart is now finished for 2023...but we are working on our 2024 calendar so watch this space for date announcements. If you'd like to register your interest, you can do so here.
Sessions run at the Grampian Transport Museum, Alford and each young driver enjoys 1:2:1 for 2 hours with one of our highly experienced and patient instructors. They start by learning the controls and progress to driving around the track, working up to manoeuvres such as reversing, overtaking and emergency stops. The cost of the programme is £130 (which includes entry to the museum for 2 adults during the seasonal opening hours).
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 can even be helpful for young drivers who have recently passed their test but are struggling to gain confidence on the road.
Headstart aims improve 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.
