Driving Skills Workshop

Driver training in the UK primarily involves a traditional approach to the acquisition of skills. To fulfil and help identify the prime difference between driver training and traffic education, driver training is mostly geared to the preparation for the driving test. Traffic education involves a wider educational concept which also covers a whole range of additional elements contained within the driving task. Following the principles of defensive driving, this workshop provides a cost effective method to enhance and improve driving skills.
