The Flying Colours team are all very experienced fully qualified instructors and have been running under 17's events for four years.
We have perfected a technique so that youngsters from the age of 14 can drive a car off road in a safe environment at Matchams. All the cars are modern, dual controlled for safety, and pupils benefit from one to one tuition (never more than one pupil in a car at any time).
Subject to ability, as well as driving around the 3 oval race tracks, there are other areas where pupils will also be challenged with three point turns, reversing into parking bays, reverse parking, zig zag (forward and reverse) and a roundabout or crossroads.
We also welcome pupils who are over 17 and perhaps a little nervous of having a lesson "on the roads". Our oldest pupil to-date was 93!
EXPERIENCE SHOWS US THAT THOSE DRIVERS WHO ATTEND OUR UNDER 17'S EVENTS, TAKE FAR FEWER LESSONS WHEN ON THE ROAD.
Please ring Jane in the office to book or for more information - 01202 432702

Flying Colours Under 17's Driving Day Video.
Our next Under 17's (14 - 17 years) driving event will be held on
Here are a few videos on the day including driving around the track, tackling a roundabout and performing manoeuvres like reverse parking.
We welcome new pupils and also those who have attended our previous Under 17's events. New pupils will learn basic driving skills and control. Existing pupils will further their skills, this will give you a head start for when you start driving on the public roads.
We offer 20 or 40 minute sessions in dual controlled cars with fully qualified driving instructors, on a one to one basis.
If you are over 17 years old but maybe just a little nervous or would like to come and have a go, age is no barrier. No driving licence is required.
Our next Under 17's (14 - 17 years) driving event will be held on TBA.
Events are held at Matchams, Hurn Road, near Ringwood.

We received the following e-mail from one of our pupils after one of our previous events:-
Just want to say a huge thanks for teaching me to drive well enough to pass first time. I had a great time driving with you from the under 17 days, which massively helped when finally learning on the roads. Hopefully see you on the road sometime!
P.S. Thanks Jon for telling me some of the best/worst jokes I have heard.
Just to thank you for a fabulous morning today. I feel i benefitted from the under 17 driving experience; i really want to try again next time you run the day. Please pass on my thanks to my instructor this morning. I have told my friends all about you, so now they would like to have a go.
Thank you again - Abi
Thought you might like to know what Luke said on his e-mail after his driving lesson: "Hi Grandma and Grandad, thank you so much for making one of my dreams come true." He was very much at ease with Debbie so please pass on our thanks and Lukes of course. We were very impressed and no doubt we shall be seeing more of you!
Thanks again, Irene and Lionel - Luke
