You don’t have to wait until your child’s 17th birthday to get them behind the wheel.



Thanks to Vauxhall dealer Tony Levoi, young car fans aged 10 and up can drive a brand new Corsa as part of the Young Driver programme this Saturday (March 10) between 9am and 5pm at the Lakeside Shopping Centre in Thurrock.



The ground-breaking course allows children to practice driving in a safe, yet realistic closed environment under the tutelage of a specialist instructor.



With one in five new drivers crashing within the first six months of having their license, Tony Levoi hopes the course will help produce safer drivers by teaching them the basics over a longer period.

The specially constructed road system features the usual traffic signs and areas to practice manoeuvres without the pressures of other road users.



Simon Dayes, managing director at Tony Levoi Group, said: “Research shows that early driving experience cuts road accidents by 40 per cent, so the Young Driver training course is perfect for youngsters who are interested in learning to drive before they’re 17. The fleet of Corsas supplied by Vauxhall for the programme will offer young motorists invaluable experience thanks to a host of class-leading technology and safety features.



“The Corsa is also fast becoming the ultimate car for first time drivers thanks to its reliability and good value for money, making it an ideal car for those who are learning to drive or are newly-qualified.”
