About the New Starter Driving Experience
It's never too early to start driving. If you’re under 17 then Croft has the ideal experience to give you the essential driving skills you'll need to start driving and also get you behind the wheel of a MINI Cooper S to drive the legendary Croft race track as well.
The New Starter experience aims to help you acquire the car control skills (clutch, braking, steering, accelerating, vision, awareness) that will be invaluable when you apply for a provisional driving licence.
Under the expert guidance of your driving instructor, you will learn how to drive a MINI Cooper S smoothly, progressively and importantly under control.
Each student has 3 x twenty minute sessions over a 2 hour period. Two pupils share a car, but the actual time spent in the car is one to one with the Instructor.
The initial part of the training takes place in the Paddock areas at Croft Circuit, with the highlight of the training being an opportunity to drive the full 2.12 FIA-licensed Croft race circuit in the 3rd session – the same track that the stars of the British Touring Car Championship visit each year.
