Norwell Motorplex caters for drivers of all ages and experience levels – from pre-license teenagers through to CAMS race license testing.

For teens, getting their license is a milestone. For parents, it’s an opportunity. At Norwell, with our Defensive Driver training program, we instill the fundamental habits of safe, controlled driving that drivers can build upon for years to come.

Our Defensive Driver training program builds skill and confidence within your new or long-time driver, with an understanding of car control, active driving, and awareness. With Safety in mind, this course includes our Accident Avoidance exercise, Skid Control and ABS Braking exercises. This isn’t just a great experience for your teen – it’s the gift of peace of mind for you.

Students are required to have a valid driver’s license and a minimum of Learners to participate in Defensive Driver Program. Parents must accompany minors upon check-in. The Norwell Motorplex Defensive Driver program is the most fun a teen/ driver can have while learning these important skills.
