Pre-Driver Days

Leicestershire County Council’s Safe and Sustainable Travel Team offers year 11/12 students, who are 16/17 and have not yet started to drive, the opportunity to take part in a Pre-Driver Day aimed at young people who are interested in learning to drive.  The course offers a variety of workshops highlighting key issues faced by young and inexperienced drivers. The course will include an introduction to driving, issues relating to speed, impairment and also a practical off road driving session using the Mallory Park track and paddock area accompanied by a qualified driving instructor in a dual controlled car.  More information about PDD and Sage can be found here https://www.tjunction.org.uk/

What we offer:

Current rate of pay for ADI’s for a Pre-driver Day are £215.00

For more information on dates this course is running please visit: https://www.tjunction.org.uk/pre-driver-days/


SAGE is a driving assessment for mature drivers but SAGE is definitely not a driving test! The assessment is based on common sense, safe, skilful, everyday driving. There are no trick questions or unusual manoeuvres.

The assessment will take about one hour to complete and your assessor will be a friendly experienced Approved Driving Instructor.  We present each person who completes the assessment with a certificate and written feedback.

What we offer…

Rates of pay are £40 per session for an ADI, work is allocated geographically, so ADI’s are able to work generally within their own work areas.  Occasionally, depending on the location of clients ADI’s may be asked to work further from their usual place of work. 


Please contact Simon Wilson on 0116 305 0521 or Terry Laywood on 0116 305 4874 for an informal chat about the position.

Please complete and submit your expression of interest by email to roadsafety@leics.gov.uk.

Once we receive an expression of interest we will contact you and arrange to meet somewhere mutually convenient for further discussions.
