What others are saying
Confident drivers has been a really useful tool in changing my attitude to the driving test. I hadn't recognised just how much my negative thoughts about my ability rather than my actual driving ability have been holding me back and putting me off. I particularly liked the quick fix section that gives you strategies to calm down just before the test!
Confident Drivers provide an excellent service to both Learners and Driving Instructors. My learners have enjoyed the wealth of information and techniques to help them feel confident when driving or taking their driving test. I am seeing some really positive results in the learners that have used these resources.
It's great to have a website offering fantastic techniques to assist with the challenges of driving. The website recognises the fact that learning to drive can be stressful and there are strategies to help with this. The website's name, 'CONFIDENT Drivers' is what a learner is aspiring to be, so it's very positive. The techniques also apply to building general confidence in all walks of life, so useful again. Thank you!
I have been using the Confident Drivers website for a year now. It is my go to place of ADI reference when I am assisting a more nervous / anxious client /stressed during their learning to drive journey or test day nerves. The coaching wheel is my favourite coaching tool, my clients love watching their wheel evolve.
I was so pleased when my instructor signed me up for Confident Driver. I loved the hypnosis sessions & I recently passed first time with one fault. Recommend 100%
Pupils love it and I've found it very useful myself. A great resource for people and not just drivers.
Become a Confident Driver
Road safety research shows that many qualified drivers are still nervous in certain driving situations.
It also shows that driver behaviour is the biggest contributing factor in 95% of road incidents.
Recognising and understanding how your personality, thoughts, emotions, values, beliefs and perceptions about other road users might impact your own driver behaviour can help you to be more self-aware and allow you to modify your behaviour and become a safer, confident driver. This is a theme throughout the resources as it is now best practice in driving education (Goals for Driving Education Matrix). Learning to manage driving stress or calm driving nerves and related thoughts and emotions is another way to change your driving behaviour.
We have brought together a collection of 8 stress management techniques to help you learn to become a confident driver, however, they are not a quick fix! They will take a few minutes of time commitment from you each day as you learn, practice and develop your confidence skills, BUT they will be worth it and these life skills are transferable into other areas of your life that you feel nervous or lack confidence.
The starting point is working out when and what makes you nervous or anxious while driving – then you can start learning the technique which is going to work the best for you. The proven techniques on the website are used by sports and business psychologists as well as by coaches, counsellors and other talking therapists.
The exercises and audios on the website have all been created to help specifically with driving nerves and driving confidence. You do not have to try them all – choose the one that you are most drawn to that matches your specific need and ignore the ones that do not appeal. There is also information about the techniques and how they develop you to become a confident driver. You can share this with your driving instructor or family and friends so that they are aware of how they can help you too!
