Memories you can cherish forever!

First Drive has fitted cameras into its training cars so that our amazing Under 17 drivers can record their first driving experience to show their friends and family what they've been doing. The camera not only videos the young driver, but also shows the course or race circuit outside of the vehicle.

The introductory cost of the video is £15.99 (usually £19.99) and is available for both 45- or 60-minute experiences during March 2024. Drivers receive their video on a memory card (with USB adapter) at the end of the lesson. Pre-book your film when you book your lesson by phoning 01942 719030.

Youngsters can get behind the wheel with instructors who are experienced, highly trained, and who have the skills to teach them the importance of driving in a safe and controlled manner. Young drivers can build their confidence in an environment that is both undemanding and promises to be great fun. The Novice and Intermediate experiences take place on our multi-activity area, and the 60-minute Advanced experience takes place on part of the race circuit ...not many 10-16 year olds can say that they have driven around a real race track!
