Drivers as young as 15 being given the chance to get behind the wheel of a car in a scheme run by Nottinghamshire County Council to prevent road traffic casualties.

The pre-driver training experience for pupils between the ages of 15 and 17 is being offered during the October half-term holiday at the Elizabethan Academy in Retford (October 29) and the Nottingham Forest football ground (October 31).

Spaces are limited so booking is essential, and the one day event from 9am to 4pm costs £35.

Bookings can be made by phoning 0300 500 8080.

Pupils don’t need a provisional driving licence to take part.
