How does it work?

Invite your students - Add your student's name and email address to your group plan and they will receive a welcome email with their login details and links to get started immediately.  

Add a text - If you add a students mobile number as well, they will also get a text prompt.

Print/laminate the downloadables - ADIs who are making the most of their subscription use the downloadable resources in lessons with their students. Downloads include two variations of the Coaching Wheel, a Reflective learning log and a Challenging negative thoughts log.  We find that students are more likely to engage if they see their driving instructor engaging with the materials too.

Advertise that students get access - Don't keep your subscription a secret!  Use Confident Drivers as a way to market your business.

Remind students to use their account - Send email reminders from your group membership.

Celebrate test pass success - Tag us in test pass posts on your social media and we will share your post.

Make space in your group - Your student group limit is a rolling figure, so when a student passes, delete them from your group to make space for a new student.

Subscribing to an ADI group plan allows you to offer your learners access to all the resources on Confident Drivers as part of their driving lessons with you. In a similar way that you may be offering theory test training. This is a great marketing selling point for your business, adding extra value to your lessons and allowing you to charge at the higher range of lesson prices for your area.

If you would prefer to keep your business costs low, you can still support your learners by simply referring them to the Confident Drivers website as a recommended resource.
 
Your learners can subscribe themselves to our free driving test nerves course or upgrade to an individual subscription to access our full resources to help them manage driving nerves and anxiety.

What others are saying

Read more of our reviews from happy ADIs on Trustpilot

I came across Confident Drivers last night. I then decided to sign up this morning. I am glad I have its FAB, plenty of resources to help me and my students, and well worth the monthly cost.

I have been using the Confident Drivers website for a year now. It is my go to place of ADI reference when I am assisting a more nervous / anxious client /stressed during their learning to drive journey or test day nerves. The coaching wheel is my favourite coaching tool, my clients love watching their wheel evolve.

Confident Drivers provide an excellent service to both Learners and Driving Instructors. My learners have enjoyed the wealth of information and techniques to help them feel confident when driving or taking their driving test. I am seeing some really positive results in the learners that have used these resources.

I own a driving school and we provide access to Confident Drivers for all of our instructors so they can enrol their clients as required. It's an excellent franchise benefit and the feedback has been extremely positive from ADIs and learners alike.

This is a fantastic website, I would highly recommend it for anyone taking their part 3 exam to become a driving instructor. It helped me stay calm and relaxed leading up to my date and assisted with staying positive. 

I also use it for my students, they too have found it supportive. Thank you

Pupils love it and I've found it very useful myself. A great resource for people and not just drivers.

Supporting your nervous pupils

As an experienced ADI, you already know how to develop the driving abilities of your pupils.  Supporting them to control anxiety and nerves requires a different skill set.  With a Confident Driver membership, you will have the knowledge and psychological techniques you need.  Sign students up to your group plan so that they can access the resources and work through them at their own pace at home.  Alternatively, by becoming familiar with the techniques yourself you will be well placed to make suggestions to your pupils on areas to focus on. For example, if you notice a pupil has a tendency to be self-critical, you might suggest they look at the self-talk section and together you can agree on some new positive phrasing that you can both use during lessons.

Our e-learning courses to help your students with driving test nerves:

In addition to the techniques listed above, we have also created e-learning courses on the popular Moodle platform which is used by schools, colleges and universities across the world.  Our courses include
