Your child has reached that age where they now can learn to drive
How do you feel?
Nervous? Worried? Anxious?
At Excel Drive we know just how you feel!
Driving is something many teenagers can’t wait to do, but something many parents would like to put off for a long as possible.
It’s natural to be anxious about this new phase of your child’s life. There are plenty of media reports about crashes involving young people, and you might worry about the high risk of danger when young people get behind the wheel.
The most dangerous thing your child can do today is drive a motor car. Make sure they learn with a professional driver trainer!

when on the road?
- Are you up to date with the correct hand positioning while driving, mirror use requirements, correct head checks and correct timing for signal use?
- Are you familiar with the recommended safe following distance allowing for crash avoidance space and tailgaters?
- What about your road law knowledge – how up to date is that?
