Calling all young drivers in Edinburgh! If you’re aged between 12 and 16 years this is your chance to get a head start in driving. We are offering junior first-time driving experiences for teens at Ingliston circuit.
Youngsters just love the idea of being able to actually drive a real car before they can legally do so. These first-time driving experiences allow teens to do just that – in complete safety. The sessions all take place well away from public roads and are hosted by specialist Advanced Driving Instructors.
Ingliston Circuit on the outskirts of Edinburgh is a great place to learn to drive. It’s located within the Royal Highland Centre and just a tyre-skid away from Edinburgh Airport. Ingliston stopped hosting motor racing events in 1995 (after having seen the likes of Scottish legends Jackie Stewart and David Coulthard race there) but is now a really popular driving experience venue.
Your teenage drivers will be tackling the Teen Track a specially coned-out track that’s just for kids. It’s a really cool layout that includes things like roundabouts and junctions so little ones can get a feel of what it’s like to drive for real.
This Edinburgh young driver programme uses small city cars such as the Vauxhall Adam for these experiences. All cars are dual-control so junior drivers will never be out of control even if there are a couple of stalls or a bit of kangarooing going on!
With the instructor sitting alongside in the front passenger seat they’ll be giving encouragement and directions to make sure your little one gets the most out of their time behind the wheel. It might be a bit nerve-wracking for them at first but there’s no denying it’s pretty cool being able to drive!
After the welcome and safety briefing kids will be out in the cars for around 15 minutes. By the end of experience they’ll have a decent idea about car control and have a basic understanding of the rules of the road. Do you know a young driver in Edinburgh who’d be up for this?
