The Recreation Association in conjunction with Young Driver are pleased to offer Under 17’s the opportunity of obtaining some driving experience in a controlled environment at a greatly reduced rate, well before they reach 17 years of age.

Statistics show that it’s lack of experience – not lack of years – that causes so many newly qualified drivers to have accidents. So, young drivers have decided to make that experience available… and fun.

If you are 11-16 and 1.5+metres tall, then Young Driver will happily put you behind the wheel of one of their dual-control SEAT Ibizas.

Encouraged by a Young Driver instructor, you’ll learn how to control a car all the way from how to start, drive, reverse and brake through cornering and lane etiquette – and how to keep your cool while skidding on or performing an emergency stop.

Young Driver has the following venues available within the BT London & Home Counties area, at Bluewater Shopping Centre (Kent), Bicester, Brent Cross Shopping Centre (London), Cambridge, Chelmsford, Colchester, Lakeside (Essex), High Wycombe, Horsham, Kempton Park, West Quay (Southampton), Milton Keynes, Newbury (X 2), Norwich, Peterborough, Reading, Thorpe Park, Tunbridge Wells and Uxbridge.  

The vouchers can also be redeemed at any of the other Young Driver sites around the country.

All young drivers must be accompanied by an Adult or Guardian (over 18) and each lesson lasts for 30 minutes.

A maximum of 4 vouchers per person may be purchased from the Recreation Association.

Full details of how to book can be found on each voucher, with a unique booking code.
