Young Driver new dates added for 2021

Following the sell-out success of the first ever Young Driver's courses held in the Sheffield Arena car park between August & November 2020 we are pleased to announce that the event will be returning to the Arena in 2021 for another 7 events and tickets are now on sale.

The Young Driver Scheme will be at the Arena throughout 2021 with the following dates now on sale Sunday 25 April, Sunday 27 June, Sunday 11 July & Saturday 24 July 2021 - events scheduled for Sunday 31 January, Sunday 7 February, Sunday 28 March & Thursday 8 April 2021 have been cancelled - a full statement from Young Driver is available here. 

The driver training scheme allows 10-17 year olds to get behind the wheel and drive, instructed, in the safe self-contained Arena car park which will be transformed into a realistic road system so youngsters can work on a range of driving skills and manoeuvres in a bid to create a safer next generation of drivers.

Young Driver is the UK’s largest provider of pre-17 driving lessons, having delivered over 800,000 lessons at more than 70 venues across the UK. Youngsters have lessons in dual controlled Vauxhall Corsas – with a brand new fleet of Vauxhall Corsa SE Premium arriving since lockdown began – with highly qualified approved driving instructors.

A road system is created, with traffic signs, roundabouts and junctions, along with special areas to practice manoeuvres such as steering control and parking. The emphasis of the lessons is on safety and fun and encouraging youngsters to consider how to drive responsibly, giving them time to perfect driving skills such as gear changes, braking and steering without the pressures of public roads.

Safety procedures are currently in place to protect both pupils and instructors, including the wearing of masks, social distancing and regular hand and vehicle sanitisation.

Detailed instructions are sent to customers by email ahead of their lesson.
