Rrrrallye Youth Drive is held at the Grampian Transport Museum in Alford , the first
session is at 9am and the second at 1pm. Each session lasts around 3 hours.
In stress free surroundings and with the friendly and expert guidance of a qualified

get behind the wheel and become familiar with the control and performance of a vehicle.

and hands on experience on vehicle maintenance and a demonstraion drive in Alford and
surrounding area focusing on road hazard awareness.

Young drivers on the track at the Grampian Transport Museum
||A quote from the mother of this young driver:
"Thank you so much for today, I am so glad my youngster got a place.
He's not always the most confident or outspoken lad, but he came back beaming and
so proud of driving the sponsor round the track on his own (just need to add,
the instructor was in the car as well) A real boost to his confidence and self
esteem as well as a terrific start to his driver training."
The Rrrrallye Youth Drive is organised by the Rrrrallye Team headed up by Linda Harper. Thanks to Linda
and to Dave and Jim, the instructors from Roadwise Driver Training for running the event.
