Learn the basics of motoring on a BMW Mini first drive! These sessions operate from several different driving circuits around the country and offer kids from the age of 10 years the chance to get behind the wheel early to get a head start in driving.
We are offering 60 minute junior Mini driving lessons for your little ones. Youngsters will get to sit in the driver’s seat, start the engine, move off and drive. Then there’s cornering, braking and changing gear skills to master too, not forgetting the all important part - how to stop the car safely! The kids will also get the chance to try reversing in their Mini. And if you remember the first time you tried that on a driving lesson, you’ll recall it’s not easy.
All this takes place in the very safe and controlled environment of a motoring circuit. You might think airfield tracks and race circuits with all those high performance cars whizzing about would be the last place to take a child on their first drive in a little Mini, but actually it’s ideal. These junior sessions are scheduled apart and mostly use a separate area. There’s no other traffic, no traffic lights, junctions or anything else to distract the mini drivers.
And we should mention the cars your children will be driving. The BMW Mini is a proper funky little motor that kids will love to boast was their ‘first car’. This driving operator has a rather nifty fleet of Minis, including the Mini ONE, the Mini Cooper S and even convertibles. So if the sun’s shining, it’s top down first driving fun in the open top Mini. Very cool.
Of course, there will be an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) in the car at all times and every Mini used is actually dual-control, so the safety aspect is very much there. All kids taking part need to be accompanied by a responsible adult whilst on site and spectators can watch the action from the adjacent viewing areas.
Plus Supercar Blast Option
This is where youngsters over 12 years, will take the skills they learnt on their first drive and apply them to a supercar! It’s quite mad to think little ones as young as 12 years old can actually get to drive a gleaming (and very expensive) supercar, but they can. That’s the beauty of being on an off-road driving circuit on private land. No licence issues, just great driving fun for your teens.
The line up of supercars available varies according to the venue, but needless to say, all the favourites feature. From fabulous Ferraris and slick Subarus, to awesome Astons and amazing Audis, the collection of cars is going to blow the kids away. They’ll be utterly excited, for sure.
These first drive and supercar experiences are offered at a variety of UK circuits.
