The Young Driver Challenge 2021

The finals of the Young Driver Challenge 2021 were held at the British Motor Museum on Saturday 2nd October. 

Forty young drivers made it through to the final event and were split into two age categories, 10 to 13s and 14 to 16s, before taking part in a number of driving challenges, which included tackling junctions, manoeuvres, parallel parks and handling a steering slalom.
