They are delivered by highways contractor Amey and are designed to improve their driving knowledge and skills.

More 16 gives 16-year-olds their first driving experience and they will gave the chance to attend theory workshops.

Parents are also given advice about choosing a driving instructor.

More Drive is available for 17-30-year-olds who have already passed their test, it offers the chance ti drive on a skid pan and experience ABS braking systems.

Sara Cannon, who attended the MORE 16 parents’ workshop, said: “Many thanks for providing a well-run and thought-provoking course. Courses like this don’t just happen and there will have been a lot of hard work behind the scenes to give all the participants (young and not so young) a really useful and memorable event.”
