Driver Reports

After the course each driver will receive a Certificate of Attendance and a full written report which will highlight any areas that can be improved. If we identify any drivers who we feel would benefit from further help, their report is fast tracked and we will discreetly contact you and arrange a further 1:1 in vehicle session.  In extreme cases where we feel the driver lacks the basic skills, we may recommend that the driver takes a few standard L lessons with a local driving school in a dual controlled car.
