Excited about getting behind the wheel?

Once you are 16 you can get off to a flying start with the Under 17 Driving Course run by North Avon Driving Instructors Association (NADIA) in association with South Gloucestershire Council’s Road Safety Team.

These sessions will include useful information in helping with the theory test, skills and knowledge to improve your experience on the road and tips to keeping a good attitude when faced with tricky situations.
