Driving Instructors

How to support your stressed, nervous and anxious pupils

Most ADIs we speak to have at least one nervous or anxious pupil that they would like to know more about improving and supporting their self-confidence. Or has a pupil who can drive but suffers from driving test nerves.

Our website offers a one stop shop of resources to help. Either subscribe to an ADI group plan on behalf of your learners - or simply refer them to the site to subscribe themselves by becoming an affiliate

Flexible Group Options

Choose between 50, 75 & 100 learners and upgrade your plan as your business grows

8 Different Techniques

Offer learners free access to techniques commonly used to manage nerves

Marketing Help

We offer free marketing resources such as leaflets, promo videos & links


For the Intelligent Instructor 2019 Product of the Year award

You know how to help your pupils develop their driving skills but other than being patient and encouraging you can sometimes feel a bit of a loss with how else to support them. This site is aimed at giving ADI’s more knowledge about which psychological techniques might help your stressed, nervous and anxious pupils. You can sign them up to your group plan so that they can access the various resources and work through them at their own pace at home.

Alternatively by becoming familiar with the techniques yourself you will be well placed to make suggestions to your pupils on areas to focus on. For example, if you notice a pupil has a tendency to be self-critical you might suggest they look at the self-talk section and together you can agree on some new positive phrasing that you can both use during lessons.

Subscribe to the group plan that suits your business best and start supporting your nervous pupils!

We are looking for ADIs to help us with our survey about nervous drivers. You do not need to be a subscriber to take part so please share the link to others. We would like to know how many nervous learners you have, how nervous they are and if you think it impacts on the number of driving tests they take to pass.
