The 15 part series from Rumpus Media will see our famous faces join a specially created intensive driving school run by three fully qualified instructors. The celebrities will learn and take part in a series of core driving skills and challenges, all in the newly launched Suzuki Ignis. Providing how well they do, this may lead to forfeits or treats for our celebrity learner drivers.
The celebrities will also be putting in extra practice sessions and helped across the week by their friends and family who will also be there to rally them on the day of their practical driving test; hopefully the positive culmination of all their hard work on the road…
