Children as young as 10 can swap the classroom for the driving seat - News

  • Primary lessons of a different kind as 10 year olds now learning to drive cars on new Under 17 driving experiences
  • Skills taught include accelerating, steering, braking and changing gear
  • Youngsters wanting a head start behind the wheel can learn with TrackDays.co.uk

Brand new Under 17 Driving Experiences are letting children as young as 10 swap the classroom for the driving seat in a high performance hot hatch.

Designed to give youngsters, some still of primary school age, the basic skills of driving a fully functioning car, the new junior driving lessons are now available with TrackDays.co.uk.

Once behind the wheel, children learn how to accelerate, steer, brake and change gear – all the basic requirements needed to drive a car, giving participants a head start and confidence for when the time comes to learn for their driving test.

Dan Jones, operations manager at TrackDays.co.uk, says: "Confidence and experience are key when learning to drive a car. Youngsters with more miles behind them will benefit from a self assuredness that comes through early years of practice."

Each junior driving experience is tailored so it is based on the child's driving ability, including if the youngster has any previous skills of driving a vehicle.

This unique driving experience is also behind the wheel of no ordinary car but a Ford Fiesta ST complete with a 1.6 litre Ecoboost Turbocharged engine, 17 inch alloy wheels and half leather Recaro competition seats.

Dan added: "As well as being educational, these Under 17 driving experiences are also great fun and provide an alternative activity for youngsters to enjoy, whether they are staying close to home over the holidays with a staycation or looking for some excitement during term time."

Meanwhile, for those even more adventurous children then there's also the chance to test their driving skills in a Supercar, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens and Aston Martins, at venues across the UK.

To view and book from our complete range of driving days for Juniors, including our Under 17 sessions, visit the Junior Driving Experiences page on the TrackDays website today, where you can book from forthcoming dates on our Events Calendar or purchase one of our open gift vouchers.
