What Can I Expect

Move over adults and bigger kids, this is the under 10 driving experience! Time to leave the driving to the very youngest motoring fans with these lessons for under 10s. And don't worry, there's no panic about reaching the pedals, these are electric cars specially designed for younger children to drive.

And when we say these are electric cars for kids, they are nothing like the toy cars you can buy everywhere. The Firefly has been designed by a proper car designer who did all the fancy drawings so that the clever automotive engineers could do all the measuring and complicated calculations. Then the highly skilled technicians went to work with their machines and tools to actually build these fab little cars.

Every one is hand built in the Midlands, which is the home of British car manufacturing. Each one has a proper chassis. That's to say there's the proper steering wheel and steering column, suspension, disc brakes and pretty much everything else you'd find in an electric car - but in miniature. There are even indicators!

The reason why these electric cars for kids are so realistic is because the team behind the concept wanted a smaller version of a real car so that the very youngest children could have a go at driving responsibly. And that's exactly what happens on these driving experiences just for the under 10s.

With a temporary road layout set-up that features junctions, roundabouts and your typical Highway Code signage but in reduced dimensions, baby drivers under the age of 10 will be able to learn about what driving on the roads really feels like on these lessons. And they can't overcook it in these mini motors, as the maximum speed is 10mph and the clever car has an automatic sensor to detect objects, which will instinctively cut the power. Handily, there's also a remote cut-off switch, so parents or instructors can magically stop the car from a distance!

What's more, the Firefly electric car is actually a two seater, so fledgling motorists can invite a passenger to join them to encourage and coach youngsters in the ways of the road.
