We really love our brand-new Vauxhall Corsas. Easy to drive, stylish and economical.
But what if your young driver wants to explore what driving used to be like back in the day? We’ve teamed up with the British Motor Museum to offer Classic Car Driving Experiences for kids of all ages, from 10 to 100 years old! We have three real motoring classics – a Vauxhall VX490, a Morris Minor and an Austin 7. Why not try something different and take one of these classic cars for a drive?! Not only are these classics a bundle of fun, they are more challenging to drive and will test your young driver’s skills – and make them appreciate the comforts and driveability of modern cars!
And if that wasn’t exciting enough, we have also added a Fire Engine Driving Experience…
For kids of all ages - don't let the youngsters have all the fun, parents and grandparents can enjoy an experience too!
Currently available at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warwickshire.

The Austin 7 was introduced to the British public in 1922, just four years after the end of World War One. By the start of World War Two in 1939, some 290,000 Austin 7s were in use around the world.
The Young Driver car is a 1963 Austin 7 Ulster Replica. The original car was made in 1934 and was most likely a saloon body. The two seater, Ulster-style aluminium body was specially made after this date.
Take The Wheel
You’ll be with an ADI at all times to show you the controls, keep you moving and make sure you enjoy every minute as safely as possible.
The Morris Minor was a British car that made its debut in 1948. Designed by motoring legend Alec Issigonis (he went on to design the Mini), more than 1.6 million Morris Minors were manufactured between 1948 and 1972. In fact, the Morris Minor was the first British car ever to sell over a million units.
The Young Driver car is a Tourer model in Old English White with a red interior.
Try a Classic
Driving classics is great fun and will give you an extra feel for sensitive and delicate car control - a rare skill.
The Vauxhall VX490 was produced between 1963–67 during which 31,000 saloons were made of the HB spec of which only 10 are on the UK roads today making Young Driver’s model a very rare classic car indeed!
Driving a real fire engine complete with lights and sirens will give kids a new confidence and improve their spatial awareness. It’s also unforgettable fun!
