Confidence Building Driving Lessons This is a course for learner drivers who have been suffering from a lack of confidence when it comes to driving. The aim of this short course is not to pass your driving test, though you will develop skills for your test. The aim is to purely help you develop the skills and confidence you need to take control of the car and feel comfortable in doing so. Once the anxiety has subsided we can then work on the remaining skills you need to be a safe driver and pass your driving test.
A Little Bit About You… We meet people like you everyday and we want to let you know that feeling the way you do is perfectly normal. You might be thinking “yeah right, they are bound to say that” but consider this. We are human beings and have been on this planet for thousands of years, yet its only in the last 200 years or so have we been able to travel faster than a horse with the use of a train, and only in the last 30 years or so has almost every family had access to a car.
We are talking about traveling distances and going at speeds the human race wasn’t designed for, so what happens is your inner brain kicks in and sends signals to say something is different and we must be cautious. That’s it. That is why you are feeling nervous. Even if you have been in an accident that is holding you back, it is still the nervous system saying, “hey this is unusual”.
Before you even get in the car you will need to phone us to book a driving lesson so we believe this should be your starting point of taking control. We would like to know a little more about you. Have you driven before? What was it like? Why do you feel you think you are nervous? Is there any part of driving you are comfortable with? Getting to know you, breaking the ice a little and learning a little bit about you will help your first driving lesson go smoothly.
How Do We Help You?
Have you ever heard of the comfort zone? You know that place where life is a bit easier for you and you are happy to be there? Well that’s where we are going to start. Now this may mean you starting in a car park with no cars, or on an industrial estate with no traffic, or perhaps you can drive a little and start to get phased when you have to deal with roundabouts or driving at 40mph. Where ever you feel most comfortable is where we will begin our journey. Keeping You Safe Your driving instructor is fully qualified, experienced and all cars have dual controls so you are never in danger and are always kept safe.
Developing Your Skills
While in your comfort zone you will get better at what you can already do, you will try new skills which you re comfortable with getting stuck into and you will observe your confidence grow. It’s a bit like learning to ride a bike. At first you are on a tricycle then a bike with stabilisers, then you take off a stabiliser, and then you just have a parent holding on to your seat…and before you know it you are off. What you have done is gradually build skills and confidence in a way that suits you.
Yes we are patient, caring, friendly and at times we have been even known to crack the odd joke!
