About Drive B4 U Turn 17 Driving School

Drive B4 U Turn 17 LogoOur under 17 driver training sessions were started in November 2009 by Jon Reynolds, an experienced grade 6 driving instructor who has been teaching in the Winchester area since 2004.

Our under 17 driver training takes place on large areas of private road with professional line markings which enables young drivers to master basic driving techniques without the added pressure of oncoming traffic.

Under 17 Training Site

All our driving instructors are fully qualified and teach in cars which are equipped with dual controls.

Under 17’s driver training sessions will generally cost more than on road driving lessons due to the fact that an area of land needs to be hired for the purpose. However, our sessions are very competitively priced compared to other companies offering this type of driver training. Please check this by visiting Google and typing in 'Under 17 Driving'.

All our instructors have the same goal and that is to teach young people how to drive safely for the rest of their lives, something which we all feel very passionate about.

PLEASE NOTE:

We are very fortunate to have such fantastic sites for our under 17s driver training, however, we hire the land from third parties with the condition that they take priority on its usage which means they could cancel one of our training dates at short notice. This situation does not occur often but if and when it does, we will endeavour to rearrange your session for a future date. We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

We brought our son Jake, 14, for his first driving lesson on the 28th of June. Directions to find the centre were very good and we arrived early, in time to see other young drivers from the previous lesson being put through their paces, which was interesting for Jake. He was allotted his instructor, a lovely young lady named Becky, and we were told where we could go to watch the majority of the lesson, which was ideal. Watching Jake's tentative first steps on the road to adulthood in a car was quite moving. Suddenly he's not our little boy any more, but the person behind the wheel of a car travelling at speed on occasion! We watched him go from crawling along in a low gear, to going round the laid out course of junctions, roads and roundabouts, and learning to reverse into a parking space by the end of the lesson. His face never wavered from the excited grin we could see fixed to it every time he drove past us, and when he finally came to a halt, he was on a high that lasted the rest of the day. We are definitely bringing him for another lesson in the autumn, and plan to keep him going until he is seventeen and ready to get on the road, hopefully with a greater degree of understanding than most of his contemporaries will have.
