A MOTHERS WORDS….”My daughter had her first off road driving experience today for students under 17. It was brilliant and safe, teaching standards are excellent.The instructors were professional, friendly and patient. I would recommend all parents to arrange this experience for their children before they reach 17. It is fantastic opportunity for children to learn how to control car before they can drive on the road“


Well done Megan (16) and Tom (14), what a great lesson learning turn in the road, reverse around a corner and parallel park all in one hour!

U17’s Driving Lessons.

There are many reasons for wanting to learn to drive but at 15 it has to be the excitement of actually being the one in control of the car! Although I am a few years older now I can still remember how I felt on my first ever lesson! So if you are looking for something different as a birthday gift  or just to treat someone this will be a great experience.

That first  lesson was pretty scary and having other road users around made it at times terrifying. That’s why taking these first steps in a safe and pressure free area makes so much sense. Here you will be able to relax and you will learn so much faster that when you actually take to the roads you will have the skills to be able to fully concentrate and progress through our syllabus that you will take fewer lessons before sitting and passing your driving test. Its not an age criteria that makes a good driver its experience so the earlier you begin the chances are you will have more knowledge and remain safer.

We are located within the grounds of Ferndown 1st School. Your driving experience will last an hour. There is no access for the general public as we are in a secure site and the gates will be shut behind us. There is a viewing area so you will be able to take photos and film if you wish.

Your instructor will then get you driving straight away and take you through a programme that will have you steering correctly, braking in time, changing the gears smoothly and show you how to park a car which some adults still find extremely difficult! For anyone returning to the programme we can progress your lessons to a  more advanced level.

The more you learn off road the quicker you will take to the public roads.

Have fun and stay safe at the same time

Warm Regards.
