Pre-driver course returns
Buckinghamshire’s road safety team is working in partnership with the Association of Wycombe & District Driving Instructors (AWDDI) to promote a two-day pre-driver course on 17-18 February.
The course includes how to apply for a provisional licence and preparation for the theory and practical driving tests. There will also be presentations by the DSA and Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue. The highlight is the opportunity to drive a car with the help of an approved driving instructor.
