It’s helpful if you arrive 15 minutes before your lesson and make your way to the Young Driver™ reception. One of our team will get you checked in and let you know who your instructor will be. Your instructor will greet you a few minutes before your lesson time and ensure you are comfortable in the car. If you have purchased the in car film of your experience you will be given the memory card at the desk, please give this to your instructor, and you will get it back from the desk before you leave.
At Young Driver™ we are fully inclusive and want to welcome everyone. We cater for a wide range of physical and mental disabilities. We are experts at teaching youngsters with special needs and have automatic cars with hand controls for wheelchair users. Please call our team to discuss your individual requirements.

Could be within the shopping centre itself or a converted double decker bus. At every venue there is somewhere nearby to grab a coffee, soft drink or snack.
We recommend arriving 15 minutes before your lesson to allow enough time to get checked in and ready to go.
