Essex Young Drivers Scheme
RPL Driving is part of a group of Driving Instructors who teach under 17s to drive once a month at the YDS (Young Drivers Scheme). It was started several years ago to help young people develop their car control before they move out onto public roads to start their driving lessons. It is run on a closed industrial estate, and therefore is as close to driving on public roads as you can get. There is space to practice dealing with different types of junctions, emergency stops and even reversing exercises.
If you are interested, or know someone who might be, the lessons take place on the 3rd Sunday of every month at the Earl Colne Business Park. People come from areas all over Essex to take lessons here, including as far as Brentwood, Billericay and Chelmsford.
