British kids could experience driving a classic Bentley on the road with a certified instructor at their side. We are talking about a Bentley Arnage, complete with a 6.75-liter engine, which has been adapted for dual control and is available for driving lessons at Great Britain’s largest provider of pre-17 driving lessons.
You read that right, a kid aged 11-17 years old could get the chance to take a few hours of driving in a Bentley Arnage, a vehicle most of us could only dream of owning.

Considering that these models are already classics, they are affordable, but ownership costs would make buying a Bentley Arnage an unwise idea for most readers.

Furthermore, along with the fact that the child would have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a Bentley Arnage and drive it on public roads, their parents could be sitting in the backseat.

The driving school came up with this twist on regular lessons to give parents a reward for the costs they will have to pay for their kids to experience driving a Bentley. All a youngster has to do to be eligible, along with the financial part, is to be aged between 11 and 17 and drive at least an hour in a Skoda Citigo from the Young Driver park.

A 30-minute lesson in the Bentley Arnage costs 49.95 pounds, not an excruciating amount for someone who has a petrolhead child. If you ask us, we would have traded a few pairs of sneakers for a chance to drive a Bentley before the age of 17.

Naturally, this requirement is necessary to ensure the child has enough skill, attention, and understanding of the rules to be able to trust them at the wheel of a Bentley. Even with dual controls, vehicles used for driving schools still require responsibility from the driver, as well as respect for the road and mode of transportation.

At first, Young Driver will offer the Bentley Arnage in six venues, including their Crewe branch. It would have been a shame not to get the chance to drive a Bentley in the city where they are made. That would be an exceptional experience, just like driving a Ferrari near Maranello.
