To launch this new and exciting initiative, the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy is offering some incredible prizes for winners including a full course of driving lessons, the chance to test drive new cars, be invited to exclusive events and experience stylish hospitality including the renowned Formula 1™ British Grand Prix. What’s more, successful challenge finalists can go on to become young VIP’s for the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy, experience star-studded VIP treatment and meet famous celebrities.

Once they’re behind the wheel, these participants will practice and perfect their driving skills in five challenges that might not be as easy as they look! A skilled and expert Driving Coach will be on hand to guide and develop their driving accuracy, precision, judgement, concentration and of course, steering – all taking place in a safe and controlled environment at a choice of two specially equipped venues; Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey and Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience Centre at Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire.

So whether you’ve passed your test or just love to get behind the wheel, now’s the time to rise to the challenge and get serious about driving. Britain’s Best Young Driver sessions are £45 for 30 minutes or £80 for 60 minutes and you can enter up until 4th November 2012.
