YOUNG people from the age of 11 will be able to get their first driving experience at this year's Woodvale Transport Festival at Victoria Park next month.  For the 1st time festival organisers have arranged for AA franchised driving instructors to run 30 minute tailor made sessions throughout the two days of the event on 20 June and 21 June 2015.

Keith Maidment School of Motoring will be running the sessions for 11 to 16 year olds in new Ford Fiestas, which will be located in a secured area near the bandstand.  Keith says:- "This is a great chance for young people to get their first driving experience in a safe and controlled environment with professional AA qualified driving instructors."

Young people do not require a provisional driving licence but must be aged between 11 and 16 and above 1.4 metres in height.  The 30 minute experience will include basic driving skills including road safety, clutch control, gear changing and reversing.

Those completing the session will be awarded a certificate of achievement.

Spaces are limited so pre-booking is advisable with £10 deposit. The 30 minute slot is £25. Telephone Keith on:- 07747 530116. Some spaces may be available during the weekend.  Also there will be free parking at Princes Park, where admission tickets will also be sold. Dogs are also welcome.

Public camping is available on site and costs just £50 for 3 nights.

On the gate tickets cost £5 a day for adults, £2 for children aged 6 to 16 and the under 5's are free. Advance tickets are available for the two days and are available at a reduced price via the shows website.
