One "L" of an experience for young drivers.

Once again, youngsters who want to get their first experience behind the wheel will be given the opportunity of a lifetime at The British Motor Show this August.

Building on the success of the feature in 2021, Budding drivers will get the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a real car for the first time, with more cars and more slots available, including the all new “bugs” allowing drivers under ten to get involved in the experience too.

In their session, young drivers will be under the full supervision of a qualified instructor in a car fitted with dual controls. The lessons will take place around the airfield at Farnborough, located near hall 5.

We’re delighted to welcome Young Driver back to The British Motor Show as our Under 17s driving partner. Their team of specially trained driving instructors will once again be providing taster lessons for under 17s throughout the entire event (minimum height 1.42m).

Running from 10am to 5:30pm each day, the event was extremely popular in 2021 and advanced booking are already sold out.  If you do not already hold tickets to the feature we would encourage you to head to the feature and book your tickets early to avoid disappointment
