Products & Services

Refresher/Confidence sessions

There can be many reasons why undertaking a course of refresher/confidence sessions may be of great benefit to you.

Some of these reasons can include:

You strive to get behind the wheel again following a long period of driving inactivity;
You have little or no experience of driving on a Motorway;
You feel that you need to build or boost your confidence following an incident or road traffic accident in which you were involved;
You feel that you need to update & modernise your driving skills;
You feel uncomfortable when dealing with, or presented with a particular situation;
When further training is a mandatory requirement following a driving offence;
If you can relate to any of the above, Chris Chambers School of Motoring are able to give you with tailored, step-by-step remedial sessions to suit your needs.

Driving Test Preparation

Aimed at those who are nearing test standard and who feel that they just need a short series of structured sessions before taking the test, or perhaps for those who have before attempted the driving test, but haven’t driven since. Driving test preparation generally consists of two 2-hour assessment sessions. These assessment sessions provide enough time for me to observe your level of ability in a variety of situations. Following this, provided that these sessions have not highlighted any major issues with your driving, then a further 10-hours of in-car preparation is required, along with a further 2-hours for attending the driving test (generally 16-hours in total) .

Should the assessment sessions highlight any major issues with your driving, we would then need to discuss the best way to remedy these. Please note that depending upon the nature and seriousness of any issue highlighted, the in-car driving test preparation time required may exceed the 16-hours stated above.
