Anxious or Nervous Driver – Confidence to Drive


Driving Confidence

We help any anxious or nervous driver of all backgrounds, regardless of age and experience to become safer more confident drivers. We offer a bespoke driving confidence course, based all over the UK, to help address your own specific needs. All our courses are car based and we offer a 3.5hr or 7hr session.

Typical Clients

Our Typical clients Include: Post-Accident – Those who have had an RTC (Road Traffic Collision) and wish to take additional driver training to help address their anxieties, and give them back their control when driving. Fear of Driving – Those that have developed a fear of driving for any reason, which they wish to address.
. Needing to Drive More – Those that generally lack confidence in driving, and as part of their job (or any circumstance) need to drive more, and so want to arm themselves with increased skills and added confidence.

Lack of confidence

For an anxious or nervous driver, or those that simply find themselves lacking in confidence and need help.
 Whatever your reasons, we have a small team of caring, non-judgemental DVSA (Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency) advanced driving instructors who can help you, with a one to one, bespoke course designed perfectly around what you want.

How a course runs

All training starts from your home or office. We come to you for the training, not the other way around. We can also provide training on a weekend too. After you book a course, your tutor will call you to introduce themselves, and to discuss your situation and circumstances in more detail.

On the day of the course you will meet your tutor for a further informal, non-judgemental chat before the driving starts. If appropriate, we allow you to drive in a way you normally would for a short time, for you to relax and for our tutor to get a feel for what you are like as a driver.

We then spend some time talking over what the tutor observed on the initial drive, and what the rest of the day will focus on. If you are having issues with motorways and overtaking for example, then the course will be focused more on that. Our courses are different as they are bespoke to your exact needs. We don’t just offer an “off the peg” course to fit all drivers.

At the end of the course, there will be a full debrief, along with tips and advice for the future. During the day there will be plenty of times to stop and discuss various aspects of driving and most importantly you’re driving and anxieties. You won’t be driving continuously for a full or half day.
