Arrive & Drive, Aged 14+  |  Saturday 22nd February 2020 11am - 3pm  |  Prestatyn Market Car Park

Being a young person these days is tough. There are a lot of restrictions and sanctions which you have to deal with and then before you know it, you come under pressure to grow up and be able to tackle the world with limited experience. We understand that here at Progress Youth - and that's one of the reasons we launched this service - to give teenagers road safety and driving experience in a safe, qualified and fun way.


 

What’s on Offer?

What we specialise in is making sure that young people have the experience necessary to approach some of the most important challenges in life with confidence. So, for example, you’ve got things like driving a car. Normally, you don’t have any experience with something like this until such time as you are 17. 
 
We aim to change that, however. What we try and do is to make sure that you can get behind the wheel as young as 14, under controlled conditions, so that you can experience what you’ll be seeing in a few years with an instructor. 



The Driving Experience

The experience itself is very safe and designed to be suitable for young people. What we will do is get you set up in one of our special vehicles which have been outfitted with dual controls - so you’ll be driving and the instructor can take over at any given point.
 
On that note, let’s talk a little more about your instructor. They’ll be someone with years and years of experience behind the wheel. They’ll have done this a lot before and will be able to help you see what driving is like. They’ll point out what some of the common road hazards are, they’ll help you to become familiar with the basics of life behind the wheel and they'll keep you safe. 



Just For Kids?

We like to think that this is a practical and useful experience for anyone, so if you’re someone who is new to driving and doesn’t know how to do it, or you haven’t been behind the wheel of a car for ages and want some help, we can get you booked in as well. 
 
The next session that we offer is on the 22nd of February, which is a Saturday. From 11AM to 3PM, you can come on down to Prestatyn Market Car Park, and for £5 a go, try out life behind the wheel. Doing this will allow you to feel more confident in a couple of years when you start learning properly. Speak to us on the day - we can help with that too! 
 
So all in all, we’re so excited to have you come and try out driving a real car - getting behind the wheel with one of our experienced qualified driving instructors. Everything that we do is for you, and we want you to be able to enjoy life to the fullest. Driving doesn’t have to be scary when you’re comfortable with it, and what we intend to do is make sure that you’re as comfortable as possible from a young age. So come and get some great life experiences - we look forward to seeing you!
