Autotest chance for young drivers

By Farnham Herald in Community News

YOUNGSTERS with an itch to get behind the wheel are invited to test their driving skills at a special motoring event.

The Autotest event will take place at Penns Place in Petersfield on Sunday, May 14, and will run from 8.30am.

On the day, people aged 14 and over will be able to practice precision driving around a specially constructed course under the supervision of professionals.

Young drivers will not need any form of licence and will just need to know how to steer and to operate the pedals. There will be an instructor in the car at all times.

The event has been arranged by East Hampshire District Council and Southsea Motor Club and the cars have been provided by TS Recovery.

District councillor Julie Butler said: “I think it’s fantastic that we’re running this event again. It has proved a huge success in the past and it’s sure to be great fun on Sunday too. I think it’s really important that young people get behind the wheel in a safe environment and learn how to control a car.”
