Theory Test Training
The theory test has to be passed before a practical test can be booked. The theory test is now computerised, with an interactive screen.
ProDrive provide this training with computers and similar software, offering their pupils theory training and practice, which can run in conjunction with their practical training. A DVD and literature may be purchased for practice at home.
All instructors operate within the code of practice for Approved Driving Instructors
The vehicles used for driver training are Mitsubishi space stars. All cars are dual-controlled;
we also have an automatic car.
After an initial assessment drive, the learner driver will be told approximately how many lessons they will require to bring them to D.S.A driving test standard.
The practical driving instruction will be carried out in a structured plan of lessons to suite the individual learner, during this time a mock test will be given to assess the ability and / or weaknesses of any pupil before the practical test is taken. This is a valuable benchmark towards their goal.
Skid Car Course
This is a three hour course which starts with a discussion on vehicle dynamics and the causes of losing vehicle control, followed by a session in a skid car.
This will focus on avoidance, recognition and recovery. Most importantly there will be a chance to test these new skills, under expert tuition and guidance from our professional instructors.
This session is great fun, educational, safe and must for everyone interested in driving.
The amazing skid car, completely mounted on a fully adjustable cradle, is a invaluable training aid and allows the simulation of all types of road and grip conditions. A variety of emergency braking techniques are introduced as is an understanding of vehicle dynamics. You will experience being on the limit of available grip . . . and sometimes beyond.
