Driving lessons for children as young as five

Youngsters were able to learn the basics of driving at Falkirk Stadium on Saturday.

The Young Driver initiative not only teaches teenagers who are ready to start lessons – it also gives children as young a five a head start on basic driving skills to make them safer motorists when they eventually head out into traffic for the first time.
