A comprehensive driving course is by far the most effective way to become a competent, safe and confident driver. You'll be taken through the essentials of great driving while learning at a pace that suits you.

Pre Test Warm Up

Take a final drive before sitting your driving test to get into the zone and calm the nerves, then immediately go and sit your driving test (includes use of car). Let's go for a drive, and get you comfortable enough to make your restricted or full driving test feel like just another lesson. This is a 2 hour service subject to availabilty. Students must have completed 5 lessons with Ian to use this service. Get in touch.

International Driver Coaching
