What Can I Expect

Young driver lessons are the genius solution to end teenage nagging once and for all, as this Into the Blue voucher will see youngsters enjoying 30 or 60 minute lessons behind the wheel. This means that from the age of 10, they can gain essential, practical driving experience that will be invaluable once they come of age and begin driving on the public roads for real.

Specially designed for younger drivers, all lessons take place at driving centres where realistic roadways and layouts have been built to simulate actual driving. This way, your son or daughter can experience being in control of a car in real-life situations, but without the worry of additional road users.

Each learner is accompanied by a professional instructor in the latest dual controlled Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi or similar vehicle. Teens will learn exactly the same skills as they would in a normal driving lesson at 17 - starting and stopping, pedal control, gears - all as per the Driving Standards Agency curriculum. Most centres can also accommodate disabled youngsters keen to hit the road too, by using specially adapted vehicles that have the addition of hand controls for ease of manoeuvring.

Practice makes perfect as they say, so the emphasis for each young driver on these lessons is to maximise the time spent behind the wheel learning how to safely handle the car, rather than getting bogged down with boring theory tests. It's all about getting out there and giving it a go, learning to handle the car safely and sensibly in a friendly atmosphere.

And kids - regardless of how long you spend on the purpose built route, you will be given your very own driving log book to catalogue the skills practised. So when you do get your provisional license and start lessons with an instructor, they can see what you've already done and simply build on it.

And parents - these lessons are also much-loved thanks to the magic words: "someone else's car". Adults can bundle their eager, underage offspring into one of the school's cars and watch with pride, as they negotiate the intricacies of driving…safe in the knowledge that their own vehicle is parked, locked and off-limits! And don't forget, young driver lessons are available at over 70 centres around the UK, so no teenager will have far to go to get behind the wheel.

Absolutely fantastic experience My 11 year old has autism so I called ahead of his appointment, and I was blown away at how amazing they were with my son! My son has now got another lesson booked in and can't wait! So a massive thank you from myself and my son. I always recommend and also booked a lesson for my other son for his birthday.
