Kids get driving at shopping centre
7:00am Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
CHILDREN as young as 11 can get behind the wheel as part of a campaign to get youngsters ready for the road.
Young Driver will be at Lakeside Shopping Centre on Sunday, October 28.
The scheme offers 11 to 17-year-olds the chance to have a driving lesson with a fully qualified driving instructor in a new Seat Ibiza.
Using the top floor of one of the car parks, a specially designed course that replicates public roads gives youngsters the chance to learn how to use junctions, roundabouts and manoeuvre the car.
They will also be shown how to start, stop, steer, reverse, corner and change gear. To book, visit www.young driver.eu or call 0844 3719010.
