Specialist Private Driving Courses
Our specialist private driving courses are designed for individuals that wish take their driving to a higher level with one-to-one training. We have a range of advanced and defensive driving courses, bespoke and designed to fit exactly with your needs and requirements.
We understand every driver is unique, and so an individual approach is what makes us different. This understanding is a key element, which separates us from other driver training providers. We listen and understand you and your needs. Our customers are very diverse, and range from owners of sports cars who want to learn more performance based techniques, to drivers who may have lost their confidence following a road traffic collision – or have a driving phobia.
We also help newly qualified drivers, or perhaps more accurately, their parents, who anxiously want their child to learn vital additional skills, such as driving on motorways, and dealing with more challenging situations, they may not have encountered.
General Advanced Driving Courses:
We offer a training package, which is bespoke to your specific needs, and is designed to not only make you much more confident, it will make you a safer more skilful driver too.
During a driving confidence course we cover a wide range of things including:
* Looking at the reasons for a lack of confidence
* Working with you to help create a plan of action of the course, based on your unique needs
* How to quickly develop your driving confidence for busier roads
* Speed awareness
* Developing a positive attitude towards safer driving
* How to become a safer driver on all roads
* Car control (gears, steering, foot controls, signals)
* Reversing and manoeuvres
* Town and urban defensive driving
* Driving in heavy traffic and motorways
* Eco-safe driving (effective use of speed, gears, planning)
* Anticipation – Learning to see and not just look
* Understanding other road users and their intentions
We will start the course with a relaxed initial drive, where you will be asked to drive in the way you would normally, with no coaching input from the tutor. This allows you to relax and for us to get a feel for what you are like as a driver. After the initial drive we then mark you either Excellent, Very Good, Good, Adequate or Poor in 25 key areas of driving, using one of our bespoke training reports.
We discuss the initial drive and actively encourage feedback before the coaching starts. We will base the coaching on what we see during the initial drive, what you specifically want, and the feel our tutor gets having spent time with you. For example, if you are having issues with observation and forward planning, but maybe have excellent speed control, more time will be spend on developing your observational skills, than use of speed and so on. It’s all based around you.

Driving Confidence Courses
Performance Car Intro
This course is designed for new owners of high performance cars, who realise that the car they are now
(or soon to be) driving requires a higher level of driver ability, which focuses on safety and smoothness. Many of our customer taking this course are those who have recently taken delivery of a range of prestige marques including BMW M models, Mercedes AMGs, Porsches, Ferraris and much more.
We will start the course with a chat about your car and what especially you would like to focus on. Many drivers taking this performance course tend to want a session, which makes them safer drivers, but with an added focus on being able to safely enjoy the additional power. If the car is new and unfamiliar to you, we can spend some time with you learning the various controls and driver aids fitted. This is not a high performance course in the sense that we teach you how to “drive fast”. However, we do focus a little more on car control and building a safe progressive driving style.
On the day the session starts with a relaxed initial drive, like with our other courses, where you will be asked to drive in the way you would normally, with no coaching input from the tutor. This allows you to relax, and for us to get a feel for what you are like as a driver. After the initial drive we then mark you either Excellent, Very Good, Good, Adequate or Poor in 25 key areas of driving, using one of our bespoke training reports. This is not a test, but we tend to use these results as more of a benchmark to show how you have improved during the day. We discuss the initial drive and actively encourage feedback before the coaching starts. We will base the coaching on what we see during the initial drive, what you specifically want, and the feel our tutor gets having spent time with you.
Ideal For: Owners of high performance cars, who want to ensure their driving is up to the standard to enjoy their car in a safe yet enjoyable way. All training takes place in your own car. We can
provide training on a Saturday for no additional cost.
Post Course: After the course a full report will be sent via email with the free option of a certificate of completion too.
