Why wait until you are 17 to drive a car?

We can teach you to drive a car on our off road airfield from the age of 14.

This makes a great one off driving experience for birthdays or Christmas.

We offer two types of lessons:

  • A One Off Driving Experience

  • Structured Lessons, where multiple lessons takes place over a given period suitable to yourself

All lessons are on a private airfield for which we have the licence to operate driving tuition on for under 17 drivers. Be rest assured you will not be going to a public car park or Grimsby Auditorium for what some driving schools call ' under 17's off road lessons'  The person driving the car will not be insured if using a public car park where the area is not coned off and a formal agreement is not in place by the car park owners which will more than likely be North East Lincolnshire Council. The Council do not make any formal agreement for off road tuition. Please bare this in mind when booking any off road lessons as we are the only school in North East Lincolnshire that can offer this type of tuition.

Each lesson slot is 75 minutes long, This incorporates a 10 minute introductory cockpit drill to familiarize the pupil with the basic car controls and a 5 minute debrief at the end of the lesson. This aims to give the pupil around 60 minutes of actual driving. The cost of each lesson slot can be found on our prices page.

During the one off driving experience you will learn the basics of moving off and stopping, how to steer correctly and if time allows how to change gears in just one lesson. More lessons are available should you wish to gain more knowledge such as mirror use, junction routines, car ancillary controls such as windscreen wipers, use of the horn and indicators. All these things come with time when learning to drive but imagine getting a head start and learning these things early. It can also take away those first driving on the road nerves. All this can be achieved by having more than just the one off road driving experience.

Our cars are fully insured, fitted with dual controls and with a fully qualified DVSA driving instructor who uses the same vehicle to teach regular driving lessons on the road. If it is possible and you wish to continue driving lessons with us once you turn 17 we will try to keep you with the same instructor that you had on the off road lessons. This is usually possible if you live in Grimsby or Scunthorpe areas.

Each pupil will learn at their own speed so there are no expectations whatsoever, we simply teach to the speed of the pupils learning curve. You therefore have the choice to have more than one driving experience lesson if you do not wish to have structured lessons but enjoyed the experience of the first one. No pressure to perform, it's about enjoying yourself.

It is always worth remembering that whilst we try to make this facility as realistic as possible there will not be any other road users around (except other pupils using this facility).

Off road lessons are normally held on a Saturday or Sunday as our instructors are teaching on road pupils Mon-Fri. However we may be able to fit in lessons during school holidays if we have the available space.

Parents, relatives and friends are more than welcome to come and watch you drive around the airfield but for health and safety reasons they must stay in their car and away from the area that you will be driving around.
