With an ever increasing number of cars on the roads and a multitude of hazards to manage, for some drivers, being in control of a vehicle can be daunting and scary. It may even be something that you avoid doing unless you really have to. This nervousness may be a natural fear, the result of a road traffic accident or perhaps you just haven’t driven for a while and need a refresh. Whatever the reasons, we want to help you to overcome this anxiety with our Nervous Drivers Advanced Driving Course.
We will work with you to address any specific concerns that you have and customise the lesson to help build your confidence in these areas. We’ll also give you some general tips and advice on how to drive more safely and with more assertiveness across a variety of road types.
Lucky enough to have a high performance car? Let us show you how to use it to its full potential – safely and within the law, whilst also getting lots of enjoyment from your new toy! High performance cars offer lots of power which can be exhilarating and fun, but it’s important to know how to handle this extra energy on public roads to ensure that you, your passengers and other road users are not put at risk.
Furthermore, if you are a bit perplexed by all of the extra controls on the dashboard and steering wheel, we can explain these too.
Driving a van or larger vehicle can be very different to driving a standard car. You are typically sat in a higher position, have a longer wheelbase, no rear-view mirror and might be carrying heavier loads.
On our Van Driver Training Course we’ll take you through all of the skills you need in order to be a safe van driver, including spatial awareness, how to use your side mirrors, driving without a rear-view mirror, how to position the vehicle on the road, parking, driving with heavy loads and speed control.
This course is aimed at those of you whose employer has requested that you take an advanced driving course.

On the course, we’ll show you how to drive with confidence and in a safe manner on all types of roads including motorways, dual carriageways, country lanes and within busy towns or cities. From speed control and reading the road ahead to vehicle positioning, economic driving and coping with different weather conditions, we’ll give you the skills you need to become a safer and more efficient driver, which will not only benefit the business that you work for, but your own personal driving experience too.
