DARE2DRIVE was established in 2015 by Pennie Alexander, a former Gymnastics Coach, with the aim to teach safe, efficient driving skills for life, giving the ability to be independent and enhance career prospects.
It is the aim of DARE2DRIVE to provide customers with the skills of driving safely for a lifetime. They will be taught how to drive in a Defensive manner, giving thought to others on the road, be Attentive and prepared for any situation, be Responsible for their actions and drive Efficiently and economically. All tuition will include everyday situations that all drivers face. Routes that will be used on an average day after passing the L Test (when driving skills are to the correct standard for those roads) and a good variety of different types of roads, junctions and manoeuvres will be used during lessons. Test areas will be driven when pupils are ready to pass their L Test, this is because it shouldn’t matter where you learn to drive. If you are taught correctly, you should be able to pass your L Test anywhere! The only reason you are taken around the test routes is to help the nerves whilst taking the test.
Learning to drive can be very daunting and frightening for some people, here at the DARE2DRIVE driving school based in Wisbech St Mary, you will be given all the support, time and dedication you need for your driving lessons. Each stage of learning will be explained resourcefully and if required, demonstrated before you are asked to attempt any manoeuvre. At the end of each lesson you will have a discussion with your instructor about the session and asked to answer a few questions about how you felt the session went. This is when the aim for the following session will be discussed and agreed with you.
Everyone is unique and learns at their own pace and in their own individual way. With the help of DARE2DRIVE you will achieve your aims and goals and understand the rules and regulations of driving. You will help to devise your program of learning which will be revised at regular intervals to make sure you and your instructor are happy with the progress. Your progress will be recorded on an information card which you will keep and bring with you to each lesson, enabling another licensed driver over the age of 21 to help with practice. Anyone helping you practice must also have held a full licence for a minimum of 3 years and the car used must be road legal and insured for you to drive. We do not suggest you take to the road in a vehicle without dual controls until your instructor informs you that you are ready. This is for your safety and that of others.
