Heritage Motor Centre launches 'DriveZone' for under 17's to learn basic driving skills

The Heritage Motor Centre has launched a series of driving packages aimed at those aged 11-17 who want to learn basic driving skills. Drivezone is a purpose built off-road driver training facility featuring a track almost 1 km long with a roundabout, junctions and other
realistic road and driving features. Driving sessions take place in new dual-controlled Fiesta cars from the official supplier Ford, all under the supervision of expert and qualified instructors.

Training packages are available for children as young as 11 and a minimum of 1.5 m tall. These are designed to improve skills and awareness in young drivers. Research has shown that young and newly qualified drivers are at a far higher risk of having an accident than other drivers and that road deaths are the biggest killer of young people. Statistics show that 1 in 5 new drivers has a crash within 6 months of passing their test and that young drivers are involved in 1 in 4 fatal or serious car accidents.

"We are delighted to launch DriveZone which is a great way to learn basic skills in a safe driving environment, away from busy roads and traffic. The sessions will also make an ideal Christmas present for those looking for a present with a difference," said Penny Tyler, Marketing Officer, Heritage Motor Centre.

DriveZone sessions are run on certain weekends with pre-booked sessions offered on a regular basis throughout the year. There are also sessions for qualified drivers including winter driving and car clinics.
