Do you describe yourself as a nervous driver?
Did you pass your driving test sometime back but when you drive you actively avoid certain stressful situations?
If you answered yes then our website has been developed especially with you in mind. And you are not alone! According to a survey by Lloyds car insurance, 70% of motorists experience anxiety in difficult driving situations after they've passed their test.
Imagine you could drive calmly, confidently and safely wherever and whenever you want.
The good news is, whether you are a newly qualified driver, or had your driving license for years, you can learn to overcome your driving fear and improve your driving confidence to become a calmer, safer and confident driver. We have created a range of solutions especially for you:
* Our free confidence-building tool which can help you identify your current driving strengths and weaknesses and create a plan
* Our stress management subscription offering the most effective techniques to help you manage your driving nerves (which includes hypnosis audios to help you overcome your driving fears)
* One-to-one coaching for driving confidence with one of the top driver trainers in the UK.
Coaching for Driving Confidence
Kev is a personal development and business coach as well as being a highly respected ORDIT registered ADI which means he not only teaches people to drive, but develops driving instructors to be the best they can be.
Kev is able to combine his coaching with his in-depth knowledge of driving tuition to help you set driving goals, identify any gaps in your driving knowledge and understanding and challenge unhelpful thinking and beliefs that may be the cause of nerves and anxiety.
The number of coaching sessions varies for each individual and can be agreed following the initial call and is flexible depending on circumstances.
We send out a pre-call consultation sheet which asks questions about your individual driving circumstances and situation so that we have most of the relevant information in advance of the call. This ensures that the 30 minutes can be used as a coaching session with the aim of following up afterwards with our recommendations for the most effective strategies to help.

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!
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%
Simple but effective!
The website has excellent content and has helped me immensely. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone learning to drive, and even if you're not some of the mindfulness content can be useful :)
