Our Under17’s learner driver tuition course offers a superb opportunity to teenage pupils to gain a head start and get valuable driving experience before going onto the roads. Learners are instructed professionally on handling a car in a controlled and safe environment in their own time without the fear of causing disruptions and problems for other road users. Safe4Life Driver Training provides a hign level of driver training to its customers in the hope they will continue to use the skills and knowledge obtained during their training course throughout the rest of their driving life, and not just to perform for an examiner on a driving test. Our aim is to educate and develop trainees to create safer drivers for the roads in the future.
