WOULD-BE drivers as young as 15 are being given the chance to get behind the wheel of a car – legally – in a scheme being run by Notts County Council.

Pre-driver training experiences for pupils between the ages of 15 and 17 are being offered as part of the county council’s ongoing programme of education for young people in a bid to cut road traffic casualties in the county.

As well as two hours in-car training, the pre-driver training day also includes advice on how to choose a good driving instructor and workshops on the responsibilities that come with being a driver, including the effects of drink or drugs.
