The Benefits of the under 17 driving experience

  • Anecdotal experience, and experience of those continuing lessons with us after these sessions, is that these students progress faster to being ready to take their test

"Jeremy took my 16 year old daughter for a driving experience for her birthday. We’ve done similar experiences before but this was amazing! Jeremy immediately gave her confidence and within 20 minutes she was driving on the Top Gear track! What stands out is that this experience is actually a indepth lesson and by the end she was able to handle gear changes, steering and observations. She LOVED it and I would highly recommend Jeremy to others. Thank you!"

My son is 16 and Jeremy took him out a few weeks ago at Dunsfold to help prepare him for his driving lessons in a few months. Jeremy was excellent, he gave my son the right amount of confidence, balanced with the strong awareness of what he had to do. James really enjoyed it, the track was fairly busy and by the end of the lesson my son looked like he’d been driving for months. Well done Jeremy. Will be booking again before he starts lessons to kick start everything. Thanks.

Jez took on the challenge of teaching my 19 year old profoundly deaf son to drive. 2 lessons at Dunsfold have been fantastic. I am amazed how they have worked together to understand each other. Next lesson is on proper roads!!! Thank you Jez for giving him this opportunity .
