The young driver experience is an opportunity for students to experience driving a car on a mock road test track. The course is at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey where the BBC Film Top Gear. Five of our students from the Extended Education Unit whom have been learning to drive were lucky enough to take part in the day.
Three Instructors from Stay Safe ran the course and the students got to drive a VW Polo, Golf and a Peugeot. The students were excited but apprehensive and we had gone through the day’s proceedings before we left so that they could ask and questions. All students got to drive around the course for an hour and each pupil did extremely well and impressed the instructors. It was a pleasure to see the students enjoying the experience and practicing their driving skills. After the course all students were awarded a certificate to acknowledge their achievements throughout the day. Both staff and pupils were very proud of the days achievements.
