This Easter, Mercedes-Benz is giving away a thousand incredible Driving Experiences at its Driving Experience Centre at Silverstone Circuit; incredible because they are designed for anyone without a driving licence.
From 30 March to 7 April, the lucky winners can put down their Easter eggs and get a taste for driving instead, with their very own driving lessons in the brand new Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
There’s no age restriction to enter to be in with a chance of winning one of over 100 driving experiences taking place each day. Entrants just need to be over 1.5 metres tall. So if you’re under 16 years old and tall enough to reach the pedals, you can drive the latest A-Class on the specially designed driving facility located at Silverstone Circuit.
For Under 16s, a complete road layout featuring roundabouts, junctions and road signs make it a perfect driving environment to enable anyone who has never driven to get behind the wheel for the first time. And with a professional Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy coach with dual controls in the passenger seat, each driving experience is perfectly tailored to everyone on a one-to-one basis.
For anyone over 16 years old and approaching the legal driving age, successful entrants can sample a HeadStart session. These 30 minute sessions are designed to prepare new drivers for the public roads by developing key driving skills in a safe and controlled environment. Doing this before taking to the roads for the first time is hugely valuable, providing full concentration and confidence to deal with road risks and other road users.
Andrew Mallery, Commercial Operations Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars, commented: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for under 16s and their families to find out for themselves what’s on offer at the Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience Centre at Silverstone Circuit. With dual controls and a professional driving coach in the passenger seat, it’s a safe and fun way for young drivers to get behind the wheel in the stylish new A-Class”.
