You can't get a driving licence in the UK until you're 17 but, at CARDROME LEARNER CENTRE (working together with Essex council and Essex Police as part of The Young Driver Scheme in Essex) if you're 1.46M/4FT9+ tall, you can learn to drive at our private road complex in Hornchurch, Essex.

No provisional driving licence is required.

Research shows that it is a lack of driving experience - not a lack of years on the planet - that causes 1 in 5 newly

qualified drivers to crash within 6 months of passing their test.
Equally alarming is that about half of all fatal or serious collisions in Essex are caused by drivers aged 17 to 24.

The Young Driver Scheme was started to encourage learning to drive properly from a younger age to gain more experience and knowledge of not only practical driving but also highway code (theory) and hazard perception.

Are you 1.46M/4FT9+ tall?

Then we’ll put you behind the wheel in one of our dual controlled cars. Let one of our fully qualified ADI driving instructors teach you how to start, drive, brake, corner, change gear, stop and even reverse.

Move your life up a gear, learn to drive now!


Driving is great fun! Kids just love driving and the vast majority of our customers come back time and time again! Cardrome makes a great gift and is guaranteed to put a smile on their face while giving them valuable driving experience!


Research shows that early driving experience cuts road accidents by 40% and with 1 in 5 young people crashing within 6 months of passing their tests, anything that reduces accidents among this group must be a good thing.

We use only dual control cars and specially selected driving instructors. All of our instructors have been DBS checked (Disclosure and Barring service - previously CRB criminal records bureau)


There are very few times in life where safety is fun and exciting but Cardrome is one of them! We know that you want them to be safe on the road in later years and that they want to have fun and be the envy of their friends by driving a real car. Cardrome delivers on both counts and that is why we do it! No matter how nervous or shy (or how confident), every young person who has attended has had great fun, learned about how to drive safely and left with a huge smile on their face!
