Our group training days in 2017 were very well received and proved to be particularly successful - and we have continued to develop these through 2018 and into 2019. We had a fantastic Spa and Nurburgring visit (Oct 2/3/4), with our finale track training event mid-October and then Silverstone in November. Blyton training day on 19th was a big success, with some new exercises added to test the drivers. Very interesting!

 

We have been working on these developmental strategies for training, looking both at dynamic control skills for fastest and safest drive, but also with serious consideration of "what can go wrong". We then train for these scenarios. We also look at the psychological influences on the driver and work, through this training, to enable a greater degree of personal control of events and behaviours. A significant impetus for this comes from tactical approaches for training for worst case scenarios. Adrenaline often imparts the least positive response when not practised for.

 

The classroom discussions, the practical repeated running through of a scenario and then combining into a precision activity or timed run(s) has come from running many such courses for other professional bodies, but operating them ourselves gives us the flexibility to really work on new ideas, some of which are unique to the UK. You will need to go the States to receive anything similar, we believe.

 

Check the video out here of a training session.

 

This is carried across to our road and track events, meaning we prep for the unwanted. So we have first aid training, emergency kit, comms equipment to keep things professional and safe. But also involve all of the group to make it rewarding, relevant and, in particular, fun!

In 2014 we started running events, trips and courses specifically for invited participants: Current clients who have already expressed an interest in particular tracks, venues or expeditions and who have also demonstrated an intelligent approach to developing their driving. We carried this on through 2015-18 and this now forms the core of our extended road and track ventures as we move towards the 2019 programme.

 

We have run these very successfully over the last few years, but the difference now is that we now have a cohort of skilled drivers whom we have invited to become part of " The Drivers " group. Members have already attended training sessions with DRIVERTUITION and have then subsequently been given the opportunity to join - and then take part in - a range of exclusive driving road-trips and track events. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Drivers  ethos? Like-minded individuals who:-

  • have driving as a passion, 

  • have an intelligent approach to cars and their own driving

  • value camaraderie and supporting of others in the group as much as their own enjoyment

  • desire to be the best drivers in the business

Following on from events we have previously run we have a critical mass of drivers who share those common values and, importantly, now have very high standards of drive in a range of environments. This "spectrum of driving capability" together with a supportive outlook is what " The Drivers " group is all about. On joining you will be presented with opportunities to gain further skills, to produce a quality managed road drive, be able to drive around a track effectively and safely; and also cope with a pressure driving situation. Those who join us will share these opportunities. It's all about the ongoing development path with fun, challenge, expertise sharing, events and memories: Low key but high standards.

 

 

If you think this is for you - are interested in joining the group- then book a training session. If you then feel that what we are about is for you express an interest and an invitation to an assessed session will follow. There is a "standard" requirement. BUT, it makes no difference whether you drive an Aston or a Fiesta. It's all about the attitude..... 

 

Combining skills of the Police response environment management matched to progress, with race driver balance and chauffeur finesse .......

 

 

 

Perhaps THIS is the time to start developing the total range of skills necessary to be a great driver:  

Safe, Smooth, and Swift
