Age 16-24? FREE Driving Courses In Luton and Central Bedfordshire

Only a few places are left on a young people's driving course!


Get advice, drive on a skid -pan or even learn about rallying! The driving courses are open to young drivers from across Central Bedfordshire and Luton Borough Council areas, and the Councils are funding them.

The courses run on 22 September 2013. 16 to 24 year olds living in the area should sign up by writing to roadsafety@amey.co.uk.

MORE 16 is aimed at 16 year-olds to provide their first experience of driving. Parents are encouraged to participate to receive advice on choosing a driving instructor and how to help their teens when practising. A high-speed passenger ride with a Millbrook pro-driver with competition history in motorsport such as rallying or racing is available to all parents that attend.

MORE Drive offers 17 to 24 year olds, who have already passed their driving test, the chance to drive on a skid-pan and experience ABS braking systems, as well as practising emergency stops at speed to demonstrate varying stopping distances.

Five workshops, covering driving skills, maintenance, what to look for when buying a used car and distractions and safety, will be run by the local authorities, Bedfordshire Police and Three Shires Driving School.
