Young driver driving lessons #Review

Young Driver Driving Lessons


Young Driver offers driving lessons for 11-17 year olds (i.e. before they're legally able to drive). The lessons take place on specially designed courses at 40 venues across Britain. Youngsters have lessons in real, dual-control cars, with fully qualified instructors and learn the same skills as they would on the road at 17.

The emphasis of the lessons is very much on safety - our research, and research from other countries, suggests that encouraging youngsters to learn over a longer period of time halves the likelihood of them having an accident when they do go on to pass their test. We also find younger children are far more receptive to safety messages than their older teen counterparts.

My partner and i attended one of our local young driver venues and the NEC Birmingham with our 12 year old son Callum. 
When we got there we were greated by a very kind lady who signed Callum in for his very first lesson, he was very nervous but also excited and bout driving his very first car.
I must admit i wass a little nervous my self my 12 year old son was going behind the wheel of a very powerful vehicle in my eyes.
But the good thing was he had a instructor in with him helping him and telling what he needed to do. 
There were quite a few people there also doing lessons which reassured me Callum was in safe hands and had a very pleasant driving instructor who was very patient with Callum.
Callum had a little booklet given to him which the instructor filled in at every task Callum completed this book would be filled in every lesson you had and shows you the progress you are making and what needs improving.

I think young driver lessons is a fantastic idea and hope many opt in to getting their children in to doing them early on in their life as its around a quite course no panics no worries and helps your child get use to a car before they hit the busy streets.
I wish it had been out when i was younger i would have loved to have done it before i hit the busy main roads.
Callum really enjoyed his day and he cant wait to do another lesson.
