â€œAs strong supporters of anything that can help learner drivers improve their driving skills, a piece in the Daventry Express caught our eye this week. So learner drivers, if you fancy a spin at the world famous Silverstone race track, read on…â€
If youâ€™re aged between 15 and 25 and live in the vicinity of Silverstone, you can take advantage of a brand new initiative. CarKraft targets two groups, unlicensed/learner drivers who can experience their very first driving lesson in a controlled setting and licensed drivers who can increase their driving skills, under the watchful eye of an advanced driver during a simulation of adverse road conditions.
Book Theory Test Today says: â€œThe CarKraft sessions for this year will take place in May, June, September and October. If you live in close proximity to Silverstone, why not register for this initiative? Visit www.carkraft.info for further details.â€
CarKraft tutors are renowned as some of the most highly qualified motoring professionals, boasting years of experience in motor racing and advanced driving techniques. The sessions offer participants both classroom and practical training.
The first session is on May 10, 8.15am â€“ 10.45am, with three further sessions throughout the day for non-drivers. For full licence holders there is one session on this date running 8.15am â€“ 13.00pm. Please note â€“ full licence holders need to show both parts of their driving licence to participate.
The September session takes place on the 20th and the October session is scheduled for the 11th. Youâ€™re advised to book quickly as places are limited and theyâ€™re free. Check the CarKraft website for current availability.
Foundational skills for learner drivers
Councillor Michael Clarke, the Northampton County Council cabinet member for transport, highways and environment, said: â€œThis is an excellent initiative which was designed to give young people the chance to acquire some basic skills in a safer and supervised environment.
The intention is for these skills to provide a foundation for them to then learn to drive in a way which increases their safety on the roads.
This course has proved enormously popular in the past with learner drivers and Iâ€™m confident that this will continue.â€
The scheme is provided for the county council by Northamptonshire Highways with 50 percent of the funding given by Northamptonshire Police. Vehicles are provided by Renault UK and the insurance is covered by insurers, Adrian Flux.
