New off-road driving adventure for 10 to 14-year-olds is coming to Malvern

Malvern Editorial 3rd Oct, 2022   0

A NEW off-road driving adventure for 10 to 14-year-olds is set to launch at Malvern’s Three Counties Showground on November 12.

Pre-17 driving experts from Young Driver will help participants who would be too young to take to the roads.

The venue will be one of the few in the country to offer the Polaris Ranger Youth driving adventure.

With the Young Driver scheme more typically teaching youngsters safe driving skills in a dual controlled hatchback with a fully qualified instructor sat beside them, the Polaris experience will enable young drivers to try their hand at independent driving in a safe and secure off-road environment.

The agile Polaris Youth Ranger is a real All Terrain Vehicle, but in a smaller size – originally created as tough working vehicles on ranches and farms.

It offers a great way for the young drivers to hone their skills, combining key safety, tech and performance features.

The Rangers can whizz over undulating fields and bumps with ease, letting young drivers practise their steering, braking and reversing in a controlled environment whilst being overseen by specialist staff.

The Youth Ride Control allows instructors to set an appropriate speed limit for the driver’s age, experience and the terrain.

All drivers will wear a helmet whilst behind the wheel and safety is the top priority.

The 30-minute driving experience will see youngsters given some tuition on how to use the vehicle before trying it for themselves on a specially designed course.

A parent can accompany the driver if they want.

Designed to tackle all environments with its 22 inch tyres, the vehicles will be taken on an all-terrain driving adventure.

Sue Waterfield, head of marketing for Young Driver, said: “We’re delighted to announce that we have added the exciting Polaris Youth Ranger to our range of driving experiences for under 17s.

“Our aim is always to give young people a varied and safe introduction to driving and we know giving them a longer time to learn the basics behind the wheel in an unpressured environment helps to make them a safer driver when they go on to pass their test.”

Since its launch in 2009, Young Driver has delivered 1.1million sessions.
