Anxious or Nervous Driver – Confidence to Drive
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.
