Drive Safe Driving School not only teach pupils from the age of 17 on the road but we also have an off road area at Waltham Airfield near Grimsby. The area is the old World War 2 runway giving us plenty of space to teach the required skills of learning to drive. We also use this facility to teach car and trailer tuition for the B E driving test but this is usually held during the week. All cars are fully insured for off road tuition and allow us to start teaching from the age of 14.

All under 17 driving lessons are conducted in the safety of a dual controlled driving school car and with a DVSA approved driving instructor.

                      

Drive Safe under 17 driving lessons are aimed at teaching the skills early to the pupil so that the day they turn seventeen they will know most of the skills and take to the road with confidence. Obviously this is going to be a great advantage as the skills required for driving safely come to many of us a second nature once we have been driving for a while, you only have to watch an experienced driver to see how easy it seems to be able to check the mirrors, indicate, slow down, change gear, observe the every day hazards and generally perform a smooth drive. All of these things come with time, practice and experience. Imagine getting a head start on all of this in the safety of off road tuition. This can be achieved with multiple lessons.

All of the lessons given will be with a DVSA qualified instructor so when the pupil turns 17 we will do our best for him/her be kept with the same instructor and car so that they are in familiar surroundings when they are able to drive on the road should they wish to stay with Drive Safe Driving School when the time comes.

The aim of our off road facility is to prepare the pupil so that they may take their driving test as near to turning 17 as possible. (You may apply for a provisional licence up to 3 months prior to your 17th birthday). Each pupil is individual and learns at different speeds, we adapt and teach to the speed of the pupils learning skills.

We have marked out most of the familiar road markings such as Junctions, One Way streets, Mini-Roundabouts, Centre and Hazard Lines etc that you would see on the normal roads. We have also marked out all of the required reverse manoeuvres so that the pupil can learn as much as they can before taking to the highways. 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) so this will be the biggest obstacle to master once on the road.

Lessons have a duration time of 75 minutes and will normally be held on a Saturday or Sunday (Mon - Fri may be available subject to availability and daylight hours). If you are looking to have just a one off lesson quite simply to learn how to make a car move and learn basic car control this is an ideal way to be introduced to driving.

Parents, friends or relatives are more than welcome to stay and watch the lesson in progress and take photo's or video's. (We've even been on facetime to Australia on one occasion)
