Nice way to get spammed, shame would have been great for the wife who isn't confident.

sorry about that, i had a bit of a check but didn't see your previous post.

Thanks op, so what jimbo, pass the battton over & let new people become aware.

Going to let my brother know as he rarely drives and when he does, he drives like an old woman.
Would have tried Drive Smart but don't think its completely free.

Would this be applicable to someone who holds a French licence and would like to build confidence to drive in the UK, or do you need a UK driving licence?

I saw the posting regarding this a short while ago. I applied online and was soon rung to offer an appointment. iopted for the 2 hours in one session. I actually enjoyed it and came away feeling much more confident. The instructor was lovely and although he gave me theTelephon number for any future use I was not pressured at all. I have received no further calls or spam.

Very cool, I passed my test 2 years ago but decided after 3 months having a car was too expensive and stressful (people in Birmingham drive INSANE). I would need a few hours again to get my confidence back. To be honest I get spammed so much I don't pay attention any more

This refresher course needs to be given to every Essex driver, I would say, every couple weeks.

If you are worried about spam use 33Mail. It's a great service. 33mail.com

You read my message wrong, I'm not fussed about a repost its over a month so permitted. Just pointing out no spam and that there are other comments and previous drivers of this scheme. Now crawl back into your hole and learn to contribute to the site rather than bitch.

Think the government should make "refresher" courses mandatory every 10 years or so of driving as im sure it would benefit everyone on the roads. Cut deaths and reduce insurance costs.

Puzzles me as my driving instructor used to have regular tests himself to make sure he was teaching correct and current methods and yet once someone has passed they are free to drive until their license expires regardless of their current ability.

Thanks op!
Since getting my license I've only driven a handful of times, so this would be a great refresher.

Even better!

use a second email address, this is great

Plenty of tits on the road who could use this.

Have some heat for the picture!

I think the problem is with over-confident drivers.

This should be compulsory for all women drivers as they only ever drive on the way back from the pub. Other than that the man drives which makes us more competent.

how long do they take to reply? just got the wife to sign up for it. saves me teaching her again!

that picture haha, fits perfectly

The problem is a lack of driving education and lazyness.

Interesting, I wonder whether they will refer everyone for more courses for the £££

I think this is a ongoing offer (or at least I hope it is). I'm 21 and have past my test but can't afford car insurance (thanks to the EU banning sexism, but not ageism) so will wait til I'm 25 and do one of these courses. It's not ideal as I would be a much safer driver if I could drive now but thats how it has to be with ageist insurance costs.

This is great! Not driven since I passed about three years again. Now that I'm about to graduate, will be looking to get a car and pick up driving again. Does anyone know whether there is a time frame to book the lessons by? I want to book for late June.

women...

All those who would like more than 2 hours, simply register as an asylum seeker.

i recently got my dl, would i qualify for this?

engine coolant apparently
metro story

I sent off the web form on sunday and someone rang me earlier to book me on it. I do mine in two weeks



Just received a call from AA n book the course next week . Thanks

Thanks for this, got my phonecall today and my first hour on Saturday

Cheers OP! That's the wife's birthday present sorted!

does it have a section for

dont use you bloody phone when driving you muptard

why are you in the middle lane of the motorway when the inside lane is clear

indicators are not optional. use them other drivers are not pyschic

why are driving so close you plank im not towing you

any reason why you are driving 20 in a 60. next time walk it might be quicker. if not at least itll be quicker for the other 1000 people you are holding up

one for audi bmw and 4x4 drivers - saying thank to people who give way should receive a thank you...this is plain good manners and is free

4x4 chelsea tractor drivers-please return these monsters-they are for off road driving not to drive little jonny 100 metres to school. we know you cant drive so dont get a 4x4 as thats akin to giving a loaded gun to a 2 year old
