A Mansfield driving instructor has launched an innovative campaign to help improve safety on the region’s roads, by giving lessons to underage motorists.

As part of the initiative Hoot Hoot Driving School U17s Academy is helping 14 to 17-year-olds get experience, build confidence and be educated on how to drive safely before they set foot on the road.

Hoot Hoot driving school owner, Kevin Hooton, hands over the keys to James Robinson, who at 12 years old, is the youngest driver to take lessons in the Ratcher Hill Quarry.
