"People forget how stressful driving can be, most of us enjoy our protective bubbles and get happily from A-Z but others find it a far more daunting prospect. As for the TEST! everyone I meet remembers theirs and wants to share the story. Driving Instructors have a number of roles in addressing this - Teaching physical skills Teaching coping strategies and Supporting the individual in reaching their goals."
