Shift into gear...learn to drive!

This experience will teach you the first steps of driving. Sometimes a book of rules just won't cut it, we'll look at how to do a proper safety check, what road signs mean, different car light mean, and how to set up the driver's seat for when you start driving.

To explore this experience together, we can...: You'll see the car, street signs, hazards, under the car hood, smell the gasoline, tires, and hear the engine.
-: You'll look through the car and inspect its safety, you'll try sitting behind the wheel to see what it feels like, and you'll get to think like a driver when we go check out neighbourhoods.
-: You'll understand the responsibility of being a driver.
