Your off road lesson will be on a one to one basis. There are only a few under 17 off road driving schools in the UK. Most schools will get you to share a car with two other learners, but with Driving Ambition it will be just you and your instructor as we feel that sharing a car with others puts the learner under too much pressure and leads to competition between students.

Driving Ambition was established by Mark Prewett in 1990. We have been teaching under 17's at Turweston Aerodrome since 2001. We have exclusive use of the aerodrome for learner driving lessons.

Message: Absolutely brilliant!! I can’t recommend this company enough.
I booked an hour long session for my son Harry’s 12th birthday as he loves anything to do with cars and driving and he thought it was amazing.
His lesson was with Mick who was so friendly and experienced and made Harry feel incredibly at ease even though sometimes he can be a little shy with people he doesn’t know.
Prior to the lesson I spoke to Mark who was so helpful and managed to sort out a session on Harry’s actual birthday and even brought him a little pressie to say happy birthday :)

I had thought about going with other companies but the young person often gets limited driving time whereas Harry was able to experience a whole hour of driving on the roads, between cones, reversing, parking etc with Driving Ambition which totally made his birthday.

I honestly can’t rate this exerience high enough and would encourage anyone to book a session.
Thank you so much to everyone who helped make his birthday so special x
