First Drive Exclusive

Our First Drive Exclusive is a great fun way to introduce youngsters to the art of driving. This friendly and relaxed event will help attendees get a head start in car control from age 10 years on. We only use ADI instructors for this activity to ensure that the correct information is imparted right from the start.  We use a separate section of the airfield track for First Drive and parents will be able to spectate from the side of the track.

The Exclusive First Drive gives you up to two hours of exclusive time with an Approved Driving Instructor. The First Drive is suitable for young people who are keen to learn how to drive early, but correctly.   Why not treat your child or young person to this exclusively or get some of their friends along, this is a popular option for birthday parties, and is suitable for up to three drivers.

The young driver is assessed individually and the course is tailored to each individual’s requirements. When not driving the children will be watching and learning from the next driver to maximise the learning and hopefully to have a laugh along the way. For an exclusive one to one session, the course may take less than two hours as there is less time hanging around.  All exclusive drivers will cover the full course.

We aim to get each pupil to be able to pull away smoothly, steer correctly and stop safely, subject to capability drivers will also be shown gear changing, using mirrors, positioning the car and even reversing.
