About the New Starter Driver Training experience

It's never too early to start driving. If your under seventeen, then Croft has the ideal experience to give you the essential driving skills you'll need to start driving and also get you behind the wheel of a MINI Cooper S to drive the legendary Croft race track as well.

The new starter experience aims to help you aquire the car control skills that will be invaluable when you apply for a provisional driving licence.

Under the expert guidence of your driving instructor, you will learn how to drive as MINI Cooper S smoothly, progressively and importantly under control.

The initial part of the training will take place in the Paddock areas at Croft Circuit. Each session is two hours long with two pupils sharing a cars - so you'll get lots of time behind the wheel..

The highlight of the training is an opportunity to drive the full 2.12 FIA licenced Croft Race Circuit - the same track that the BTCC, F3 and GT's visit every year.

This experience takes place on weekdays during the school holidays.

Please note that the minimum age is thirteen years old and pupils must be at least five feet tall.
