Tayto Park and Nissan have joined forces to open Ireland’s first ever driving school for kids. The Nissan Driving School at Tayto Park gives kids the chance to learn the rules of the road and to test their driving skills on a purpose built, road marked traffic course before leaving with their own driving licence which you can choose to buy if you wish at the end of your experience.
The new 1,000m2 track at Tayto Park in Ashbourne, Co. Meath opened to the public on Saturday 24th March. The easy drive track gives young drivers a real experience of what it is like to take to the road.
All drivers arriving at the Nissan Driving School at Tayto Park will enjoy a short video demonstration at the new attraction’s Learning Theatre, where they will learn the rules of the road before negotiating the traffic course. Young drivers who complete the course and prove to their parents that they have what it takes to make the move from the back seat to the front seat can pick up their driving licence.
Speaking at the launch, Founder of Tayto Park, Raymond Coyle said: “Here at Tayto Park we’re always looking for innovative and creative ways to enhance the experience for families at our theme park and zoo. The Nissan Driving School at Tayto Park will be the first of its kind in Ireland of which I’m sure will be very popular among our younger visitors this season. I’m delighted to welcome Nissan to Tayto Park as this marks a milestone as the first sponsored attraction at the park’.
We visited the park last Easter, and I posted a very comprehensive blog post with hints and tips about visiting the park then, if you want to refer back to that. We really enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend the trip down for fellow Northern Irish families.
