SECONDARY school students are getting their first taste of how to handle a car - without having to face the dangers of the open road.
A £500,000 British School of Motoring driving simulator has been touring schools and colleges in Huddersfield.
The "car" is modelled on a Vauxhall Corsa and provides a realistic driving experience.
BSM roadshow manager Andy Brown said: "The roadshow gives students the chance to drive a car in a safe and controlled environment.
"Learning to drive is a priority for most young people."
Huddersfield schools due to take part are Colne Valley High School, Linthwaite, King James's School, Almondbury and Royds Hall High School, Paddock.
Students who miss the roadshow can try the simulator at their local BSM centre.
