About Pre-Driver Days
Leicestershire County Council Road Safety Education Team offers year 11/12 students, who are 16/17 and have not yet started to drive, the opportunity to take part in a Pre-Driver Day aimed at young people who are interested in learning to drive.
The course offers a variety of workshops highlighting key issues faced by young and inexperienced drivers. The course will include an introduction to driving, issues relating to speed, impairment and also a practical off road driving session using the Mallory Park track and paddock area accompanied by a qualified driving instructor in a dual controlled car.
