Many adults don’t even think about their children driving until they reach the age of 17 but getting them starting early can put them at a great advantage. Young people often want to get behind the wheel as soon as possible, but it isn’t always easy to find the opportunity to practice and get used to driving before the age of 17.
Here at Young Off-Roader Scotland, we understand the importance of getting junior drivers experience at a young age and have seen first hand the benefits that learning to drive early can bring.
Passing their driving test and having their own licence can open up a whole world of freedom. Giving young adults the ability to get from A to B on their own can help to build independence and confidence, preparing them for adulthood ahead. There will be no more taxi of Mum and Dad when they get their own licence!
No matter where in the country you are living, your children having their own means of transport can greatly increase their job prospects. They will be able to look for work further afield and apply for jobs that require driving as part of the work. Employers are often more likely to hire young adults with a driving licence. Not only is it a practical skill to offer, but it also shows employers they are a quick learner with their own responsibilities.
Driving is the kind of skill that you never lose. The earlier that your children can begin learning to drive, then the more experience they will gain. Getting increased experience will ultimately make them a more responsible and safer road user. Whether they immediately get a car after passing their test or wait a while for their own set of wheels, the skill will never be lost.
Getting your children some driving experience before they are old enough to begin driving lessons can be a great way to boost confidence and start honing their skills. Our Young Off-Roader Experiences are a fun and exciting way to help your kids start driving, while also creating some unforgettable memories.
