Back at Christmas time, the kids were given a gift of driving lessons. Yes, at the ages of 12 and 10, they can get driving lessons for Christmas.

Well, today we booked in for the driving lesson – a one-hour session each in the car park of Hamilton Racecourse.

To say that they had a whale of a time would be an understatement! By the end of their hour each of them was able to start the car and move off safely, having checked the mirrors. They could change from 1st to second gear, and they successfully negotiated a slalom of cones without hitting them.

Absolutely wonderful fun – what a great present!
