A 1:1 basis involves one tutor training one driver for a half or full day. The 2:1 format is ideal for companies that have a number of drivers to train. The 2:1 basis involves training one driver in the morning for 3.5hrs and another for the same in the afternoon, per tutor.

What We Train:

We cover a wide range of elements during the training. To start there is an initial drive, so our tutors can assess the level of driver the driver is up to. After a debrief the training starts, we look at the following:

1. Observation and Anticipation
2. Car control
3. Speed awareness
4. Rules of the road
5. Developing a positive attitude
6. The System of car Control – Used by the Police
7. The Limit Point – and other advanced techniques

Our courses are based on the needs of the driver. So if one needs attention towards speed awareness, we can work on this, of another wants to focus on observation more, we can adjust to suit.

Course Duration:

Whether you are a business client or a private individual – we have a number of specialist courses to increase the skill and safety of a driver. Our courses are available for car and van drivers.

3.5hr – Around 30% opt for this course. Benefits of this course is that it’s the cheapest, and is only 3.5hr, disadvantages is that for some drivers it’s too short. Ideal mainly for companies training 4 or more drivers.

2 x 3.5hr – This is advantageous for customers that can’t driver for 7hrs and need the split to reflect. Often a driver gets homework on this session, so they can practice what has been taught on session 1, to help them with session 2. Older drivers often opt for this course.

7hr full day – Although it is hard work for some, a full day is cheaper than 2 x 3.5hr. It’s good for those who are time-poor. Maybe your company has asked you do this course, or maybe you feel a 7hr will work better for you. Talk with us if you are unsure.

We understand not all drivers want a half, full or 2 half days. Some need or want longer. That is why we offer 3,4 and 5 x 3.5h sessions. These courses are often run over a few weeks, and are mostly designed for drivers who have significant issues, such as a driving phobia, or need confidence training after a serious road traffic collision.
