Pre-Licence Course

Our Pre-Licence Course is for 16 year olds who are planning to start learning to drive when they turn 17.  Consisting of four 3 hour sessions spread over 2 days during school holidays and weekends, the course provides a good foundation in the driving skills they will put to use in later preparation for their driving test and beyond.


The aim of the course is

 

For Students

  • To be able to safely start and stop a car.
  • To have a basic knowledge of car controls and safety checks
  • To develop an awareness that good driving is not just skill based and be aware of problems associated with the misuse of speed.
  • To know how driving habits will change after passing their test and the problems that are likely to be encountered.

To Parents:

  • To offer a degree of peace of mind whilst their children are using a car, now and for some time in the future.
  • To have confidence in their children's knowledge and ability.
  • To be aware of and respect their children's attitudes to driving.
  • To have a heightened awareness of the likely inter-personal problem areas which come with learning to drive, and after the text.
  • To be aware of how attitudes and mode of driving changes after the test. 

Parents and Students will also establish an agreed workable contract for use of a car to include times of access to a car, financial implications, mode of driving and a responsible attitude.
