    Background: CHILDREN AGED 13 AND 14 HAVE BEEN LEARNING TO DRIVE AT THE MOSCOW CHILDREN'S MOTOR ROUTE FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS. GRADUATES OF THE DRIVING SCHOOL WILL TAKE PART IN THE GRAND PARADE ON MOSCOW'S RED SQUARE DURING CELEBRATIONS OF THE OCTOBER REVOLUTION.

    THE TRAINEES AT THE SCHOOL WILL TAKE PART IN THE PARADE ON NOVEMBER 7TH. MANY OF THE THEM ARE ALREADY PROFICIENT ENOUGH TO DRIVE ON THE OPEN ROAD.

    BUT BEFORE THEY REACH THAT STAGE THEY ARE SHOWN HOW A MOTOR WORKS, AND HOW TO MAKE SIMPLE RUNNING REPAIRS. THEY WERE INITIALLY TAUGHT THE FUNDAMENTALS OF DRIVING ON AN ENCLOSED COURSE AT THE MOTOR ROUTE, BUT LATER WERE TAKEN ON A ROUND TRIP DRIVE FROM MOSCOW TO LENINGRAD.

    THE CHIEF OF SERVICE AT THE MOTOR ROUTE SENT THE CHILDREN OFF ON THE DRIVE, AND SCHOOL-AGED CHILDREN WERE POSTED ALONG THE ROUTE TO GIVE DIRECTIONS AND ISSUE INSTRUCTIONS.
