As a Learner driver, you are guided through the official DVSA syllabus that prepares you to take the 'L' Test. In addition, where opportunities and ability allow, I also incorporate elements from advanced driver training to complement a variety of topics.
Pass Plus pupils are guided through the 6 topics that form this important extension to basic driver training. It is common for the newly qualified driver to use their own vehicle and to commence this additional training programme within a month or so of passing their 'L' test. If you are aged 17-24 and live within the jurisdiction of Hampshire County Council you are eligible for a £75 subsidy towards the cost of this course.
Mature drivers generally have fewer accidents than young drivers. However, as we grow older gradual changes take place which mean our ability to deal safely with some situations diminishes. Should you wish to enlist professional help to stay safe on the roads I'll happily help with this. As a trained assessor for Hampshire County Council's 60 Plus Skills Scheme since 2015, I'm experienced in this field and will respect your many years experience on the roads whilst assisting you to stay safer for longer, wherever possible. Sessions can take place in my tuition vehicle or your own vehicle.
Eco-Driving Training can be delivered on a one-to-one basis or in small groups (generally up to 3 people for comfort in the car). It is generally preferable to use the trainees' own vehicle so a personal skill set can be gained, suited to the specific vehicle driven on a daily basis. However, for groups, the training car can be used for demonstration and practise. The aim of this programme is for trainees to learn about how they can save money on fuel, reduce both harmful emissions and general wear and tear costs.
Having been the victim of three non-fault collisions, two of which were criminal acts, I'm fully aware of how some driving related incidents can affect confidence and lead to avoidance and fear. If you feel you lack confidence, for whatever reason, we can work together both in car and at your home to come up with strategies to help you get back on the road and stay there, making whatever modifications we can to route, vehicle, times of travel etc. Sessions can take place in my tuition vehicle or your own vehicle.
If you've not driven for a while, lived abroad, passed your driving test then went off to University or to work in a big city with public transport, I can assist you with a refresher programme tailored to your requirements, either in my tuition vehicle, or your own. Also, if you are considering switching from manual to automatic and would like to try an automatic first, I can arrange this for you.
