Are you aged 16-17 and want to learn to drive?
Leicestershire County Council run one-day ‘pre-driver’ courses for 16-17 year olds, who have not yet started lessons.
The courses aim to prepare the students for driving and ultimately, their driving test. They are held at Mallory Park race track and consist of a mixture of theory and practical driving, focusing on issues faced by young drivers.
The content of the class-based work includes an introduction to the Highway Code, hazard perception and speed awareness. The Leicestershire Fire & Rescue service also take part in the session, covering aspects of safety from professional and personal reflection. This is usually a very emotive, yet effective part of the course.
Practical sessions take place on the track and paddock area, where the students can get to grips with differing speeds, try out slalom sets and parking, all in a non-hazardous environment.
