The following are statistics supplied by Hampshire County Council. This is what has happened with traditional ‘just get me through the test’ training.
This is not good enough!
For little or no additional cost, my students get the training they deserve, the training that keeps them and others alive.

There are many more statistics available that I could supply but what these show is that the standard way of teaching teenagers to drive doesn’t work. How many times have you heard of a recently passed driver killing or seriously injuring themselves or others?
These show that the standard way of teaching teenagers to drive doesn’t work!
This is why I focus on attitude and responsibilites, you are driving a lethal weapon after all!
Driving is fun and to many it means freedom, but unless you think about what you are doing, driving could be the last thing you ever do.
I offer affordable, quality instruction with world class online learning. Just look at how many people offered to supply recommendations! Even some of their parents – you don’t get that very often!
