Learn at 16
As you are not permitted to drive on public roads before you are 17 years old, we use an off road circuit at Westpoint in Exeter for these lessons.
It is a purpose built track designed to take the stress out of learning to control the car in a quiet environment. Its practice road network includes junctions, pedestrian crossings, roundabouts, traffic lights and signs etc.
One of our instructors can arrange to meet you at Westpoint near Exeter, or alternatively they can pick you up and take you there, but you will be charged for the travelling time.
During your lessons here, we will introduce all the controls of the vehicle to you and explain how they work, get you moving off and stopping the car and doing basic junction work, which will give you a head start when you get out onto the road when you turn 17.
The opening times for the circuit are Monday to Saturday 9am to 4.30pm, so we can only offer these lessons during these times.
A provisional licence is not required for these lessons, but you will need to bring some form of ID with a photo if possible.
