Nervous students

Nervous about driving? Let us put your mind at ease

We understand for many people, getting behind the wheel of a car can be a nerve wracking experience. Whether you’re old or young; new to driving or have been driving a while – nerves and anxiety can happen to anyone. 

When you take driving lessons with Acclaim Motor School, we help you feel comfortable in the driving seat at your own pace. You will never be shouted at or be spoken down to – any mistake is an opportunity to learn and adapt how you drive moving forward. If you’re unsure of how to perform a task or have not yet mastered a required skill, Martin works with you to find the right approach to help you acquire the techniques you need.  

Our goal is to help you build your confidence while also developing your driving skills. We get you ready for your driving test in a way that doesn’t make it feel like an overwhelming hurdle to overcome. Instead, you will feel prepared and raring to go. Once you pass your driving test, you’ll feel confident driving safely in any conditions out on the road on your own. 


“I make no secret of the fact I have – HAD – massive driving fears and anxieties. The first day Martin came to take me for a lesson I was too scared to even drive the car out of my road. Today 17/01/2019 I passed my test – first time.”

– Leanne Chester, Newbury, 17th January 2019
