Young drivers get the chance to take their driving test around the streets of Cloud Cuckoo Land...
|Theme Park||Alton Towers|
|Park Area||Cloud Cuckoo Land|
|Opened||17 July 2006 (as "Peugeot 207 Driving School")|
2012 (renamed "Driving School")
25 March 2017 ("Cuckoo Cars Driving School" retheme)
Cloud Cuckoo Land has its own Driving School, allowing young children to get behind the wheel for their first experience of driving their own car.
Each of the cars is loosely modelled on a Peugeot 207 and is fully controllable via its steering wheel and pedals. Luckily - especially for those less cautious kiddie drivers - each can also be remotely controlled by the ride operator to avoid any nasty crashes!
The roads of Cuckoo Cars Driving School are surrounded by colourful oversized signs and obstacles: There's a giant car wash, huge traffic cones, and a group of hedgehogs waiting at the zebra crossing.
Once the ride is over, there is of course the opportunity for parents to buy their children the licence they have earned for successfully passing their driving test!
Cuckoo Cars Driving School was originally sponsored by Peugeot and named Peugeot 207 Driving School when it opened in 2006. It was renamed to the simpler Driving School once the sponsorship ended in 2012, then closed for the whole of 2016 while it was rethemed into Cuckoo Cars Driving School and reopened for the 2017 season.
