800 Driving Test Passes For Clearway Driver Training!

Our driving school is in celebratory mood today as we've achieved another milestone - we've now helped 800 learner drivers to pass their Practical driving tests! In our first test pass of 2015, Laurence B became our 800th success story when he passed first time and with just two minor driving faults at the test centre in Grays Place, Slough.

Laurence is the 800th learner driver to pass their driving test with our driving school!
Laurence is a pupil at Windsor Boys School and he took a course of driving lessons with Clearway Driver Training instructor and company manager, Paul Kirkpatrick. Paul also taught Laurence's elder sister Yasmin to drive and she also passed her driving test at the first attempt back in June 2013.

Congratulations to Laurence and here's to our 900th driving test pass - coming soon!

Driving Test Nerves

It's quite natural to be apprehensive about taking any form of test and the Practical driving test is no exception! Driving instructors regularly deal with customers who are very competent drivers, but nevertheless fail their driving tests because of nerves. 

It's a common problem which can have a significant knock-on effect in reduced confidence and increased apprehension and anxiety for affected learner drivers as their next driving test date approaches.

In order to help break what can turn into a vicious cycle of demoralising anxiety and expense, Clearway Driver Training's Louise Kirkpatrick has put together a web page full of comprehensive advice about coping with driving test nerves. She takes you through the process of identifying the exact cause of test day nerves and discusses ways of reducing anxiety either by self-help (the best way!) or via commercially available stress reducing products and services to calm you down.
