“Why did I need this? In short, an instructor had knocked my confidence with a heavy blow for selfish reasons before my first booked test. It took me a while to be comfortable again with myself and in my own car. With my new instructor and their car, I was my true confident self again showing my capabilities. I signed up for the 10-step course. There was enough information and variation to help with what I needed before my imminent test. I used the techniques regularly. (I also blocked everything out in my life - yes! - to do this whilst re-reading all the days.) Breathing techniques, being in the moment with all your senses and shoulder stance proved very useful both before and during the test as well as in the feedback stage. I was positive and calm on the day, not allowing any negativity to take a hold of me. This course was something I needed. It worked for me. Everything flowed for me. I am glad to say I passed on Friday (24th) June. So, thank you!”

What makes us industry experts?
The website and its resources have been created by husband and wife team Kev and Tracey with some help from hypnotherapist Joline. Kev is a highly experienced driving instructor as well as training other driving instructors to become the best at what they do. Kev is also a personal development coach and NLP practitioner. Tracey is a mindfulness teacher qualified in stress management techniques as well as being a psychology student with The Open University.
Tracey has chosen the most effective stress management techniques and together we have combined our knowledge and experience to apply them to driving anxiety, stress and nerves. We contacted Joline as she has experience helping others to overcome driving anxiety and we loved the sound of her voice on the hypnotherapy audios so knew our users would too. (Hypnotherapy audios only available with paid subscriptions)
Kev and Tracey regularly give talks and presentations to driving instructors on the subject of overcoming driving nerves and worries. We also write a monthly article in DIA's Driver Trainer journal.

Simple but effective! The website has excellent content and has helped me immensely. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone learning to drive, and even if you're not some of the mindfulness content can be useful :)
You CAN overcome your driving test nerves and anxiety
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.
Pupils love it and I've found it very useful myself. A great resource for people and not just drivers.
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
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.
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.
