Transition Years Driving module

TY students visited the Munster Driving Campus on Thursday, 22nd November.

Students were given a preporitry course for the Driver Theory Test. They tested their reaction times for stopping in an emergency. Best times were Patrick Cotter, Ben Ward and Sally McCarthy.

Every student got the opportunity to drive a car around the off-road track. A presentation on the workings of an engine was given. Student raced each other in changing a wheel.

This was an excellent introduction to driving for Transtion Year students. The importance and implications of road safety were continually stressed. We wish the students the best in a long and safe driving career.
