Driving Ambition

All new Full time students joining Darlington College (Sept 2022) who are aged between 16-18 years are eligible for the Driving Ambition Scheme.

This scheme was set up in order to allow our full time students to gain a valuable skill outside of the classroom, to make them more employable and to access work off the main transport routes. In order to book the driving lessons students must have 95% or above attendance in their main qualification as well as 95% or above attendance in English and/or maths if they are required to study GCSE as part of their study programme.

Students will be given a voucher that entitles them to 3 free driving lessons after Christmas 2022 and if their attendance remains 95% or above after Easter 2023 across the required disciplines, a further voucher can be issued for another 3 free lessons.

Lessons must be booked through one of the driving instructors that are on the approved list. A list will be held by each progression coach and the vouchers will be issued through them at both points in the year.

  • 6 driving lessons are equivalent to a maximum of 6 hours

  • 95% attendance is individual in each aspect of the study programme to qualify
