    The holder of the permit is entitled to drive onto the premises of the shipyard

    Hello all users!

    The holder of the permit is entitled to drive onto the premises of the shipyard.

    Is it correct to say that "the holder of the permit is entitled to drive onto the premises of the shipyard" or should I use "the holder of the permit is entitled to enter the premises of the shipyard"? The verb "enter" would be very general, since I know for sure that customers from outside the shipyard get to it in their cars, thus they drive onto the premises.

    What do you think of the whole sentence, taking into account the verb drive onto.

    Thank you.

    "Enter" doesn't mean "enter with your vehicle."

    What about "drive onto"?

    I'd shorten the end to "... the shipyard's premises".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
