Christmas gifts to remember - give 4 to 17-year olds a driving experience they’ll never forget
- 10-17s can get behind the wheel of a Vauxhall Corsa SE Premium (or a luxurious Bentley, retro classic or even a fire engine!)
- 4-10s can have a turn in the two-seater electric Firefly
If you’re sick of ‘stuff’ that never gets played with – instead, why not give gifts which will create memories youngsters will never forget this Christmas?
10-17 year olds
Tricky to buy for teens can get behind the wheel of a brand new dual controlled Vauxhall Corsa with a fully qualified instructor and learn to drive! Taking place at 70 private venues across the UK, youngsters can learn to brake, steer, change gear, tackle roundabouts and even parallel park with Young Driver. It’s great fun (and also helping them become a safer driver, but they don’t need to know that!)
Lessons start from £39.99 and gift vouchers are valid for nine months - www.youngdriver.com
For something a bit different, at selected venues they can also get behind the wheel of a luxurious Bentley, a selection of classic cars dating back 90 years or a genuine Fire Engine! Don’t worry – adults can have a go too. Prices start from £25 and lessons can be booked at www.youngdriver.com
4-10 year olds
Mini petrolheads don’t need to miss out with Young Driver’s Firefly car. The specially created two-seater electric vehicle is perfect for younger visitors to begin learning what it’s like to be behind the wheel – they can even take mum or dad out for a spin! Every learner gets their own driving licence at the end of their lesson. Lessons start from £21.99 and gift vouchers are valid for nine months www.youngdriver.com/5_10_lessons

Notes to editors:
Young Driver was established in 2009 with the aim of helping to teach youngsters to drive over a longer period, therefore encouraging a safer generation of new drivers at 17. The scheme is sponsored by Vauxhall and is the only driving school in the UK to offer carbon negative driving lessons.
Anyone aged 10 and over and above 1.42 metres tall can get behind the wheel of a brand new dual controlled Vauxhall Corsa SE Premium car with a fully qualified ADI driving instructor. Lessons take place on private property which has been developed into a realistic road system complete with road signs, junctions and car parks. A free Drive Diary helps each pupil to monitor progress. More than one million lessons have now been delivered and there are more than 70 venues to choose from across the UK.
All Drive Diaries and leaflets are printed on carbon capture paper and Young Driver’s office only uses Woodland Trust FSC paper. The Drive Diary is also available as part of the Young Driver App, which offers virtual driving lessons via unique 360° videos - taking learners from first lesson to test.
Young Driver Motor Cars Ltd, a subsidiary of Young Driver, launched Firefly, the world’s first electric cars developed specially for 4-10 year olds, in September 2016. These cars are available to drive throughout the year at selected venues.
Driving experiences for 10-17s (and adults) are also available in three classic cars - a Vauxhall VX490, Morris Minor or Austin 7, along with a genuine ex-service fire engine.
