LEARNER drivers waiting to take their provisional test are invited to a Drivestart workshop.

The course is designed to prepare young drivers on how to pass their tests and what to expect from them, including the highway code, hazard perception, and vehicle maintenance.

It also aims to educate young learners on how to operate a vehicle, the costs of owning a car, what manoeuvres make up part of the test, and scene management - what to do if you break down or arrive at a collision.
