      I’ve just got the welcome email from Prescott Driving School and it tells me I need a Motorsport UK Approved helmet – nice of them to give me a decent warning (it’s next Wednesday!!)

      Any advice?  Full face vs open?

      I’m guessing my motorbike helmet won’t be allowed?

      Hi Ben,

      I searched for a new helmet for a long time and found this to be the perfect solution at a reasonable price. Hope this helps.
