Courses for young drivers


Young drivers are being given the chance to get ahead with their road skills.

The free courses for 16 to 24-year-olds are being run in a bid to reduce road casualties.

They are being funded by Central Beds Council and Luton Borough Council, delivered by Highways Contractor Amey and run by Bedfordshire Police and Three Shires Driving School.

Places are now available for the More 16 and More Drive courses on Sunday, March 9.

More 16 is designed to give 16-year-olds their first experience of driving. Advice is also given to parents about choosing a driving instructor and how to help their teenagers when practising.

More Drive offers 17 to 24-year-olds, who have already passed their driving test, the chance to drive on a skid pan and experience ABS braking systems.
