YOUNG PEOPLE about to learn to drive can pick up some useful tips at a driving event next month.
The pre-driver training event at the Community Trust Academy, Madejski Stadium, is open to 15 to 19 year olds who are applying for their provisional driving licence.
Drivestart is a one-day course with a number of interactive sessions.
•How to apply for a licence, the highway code and the tests you will need to pass
•How to operate a vehicle, and what manoeuvres make up part of the test
•The costs of owning a car
•Scene management – what to do if you break down or arrive at a collision
The event runs from 10am until 3pm and will give teens the chance to get behind the wheel on a taster driving lesson with a qualified instructor.
Over the last decade, Wokingham Borough Council’s pre-driver training sessions have helped over 1,000 young people to develop safe driving skills.
