Get in Gear is a course being offered by Suffolk County Council for young drivers aged between 17 and 19. The course aims to give newly qualified drivers the skills to cope with driving independently and to reduce the chances of being involved in a crash.
The course aims to –
- Evaluate your own driving performance
- Cope with distractions and peer pressure
- Improve journey planning skills
- Improve driving on rural roads
The interactive classroom session lasts 2 hours, and the two on-road sessions last 2 hours each.
The classroom sessions take place across the county, usually in Bury St Edmunds, Lowestoft or Ipswich. However, we can arrange them in other locations if we have a group of students in a different area.
The on-road sessions usually take place from your home, or a mutually agreed location with your trainer.
