Startline

What is Startline?

The overall aim is to develop confidence in a young person who has no experience of driving, to take to the road at 17 with confidence and an enhanced awareness of safety, run over five stages with refresher sessions available for each stage.

What are the five stages?

• 1st Gear: Getting to know the car. You will learn about basic car maintenance and your legal responsibilities. How to prepare yourself to drive the car and the basic skills of moving off, stopping, turning left, right and controlling the car in normal driving. A detailed assessment will help you understand your skill level and also enable you to record how your skills develop. - This stage will take approximately 6 hours with the time split into 2 hours of theory based sessions (spread throughout the day) and 4 hours in car experience with an Advanced Driving Instructor

• 2nd Gear: Skill builder. In this session you will refine the skills acquired in stage 1, covering topics including correct road position, acceleration sense and preserving space around the car. The training area will be shared with other vehicles enabling you to develop your ability to interact safely with them. - Predominately in car, this session will take approximately 6 hours to complete but there will be no pressure and where required manoeuvres can be repeated. Ample opportunity will be available to repeat this and previous stages

• 3rd Gear: On the road. By this stage you will be familiar with the basics of driving with other road users, but in this session your skills of understanding, planning and anticipation will be developed. Crucially you will gain experience of driving in situations when things might not quite go to plan! You will be asked to think and act like a qualified driver. By this stage, you trainer will adopt the role of coach encouraging you to think through situations and plan for all eventualities. - Predominately in car, this session will take approximately 6 hours to complete but there will be no pressure and where required manoeuvres can be repeated

• 4th Gear: On manoeuvre. You will perform all the low speed manoeuvres that are needed for life on today’s roads, such as parallel and bay parking, reversing in confined spaces and various manoeuvres to turn the car around. - Predominately in car, this session will take approximately 6 hours to complete but there will be no pressure and where required manoeuvres can be repeated

• 5th Gear: All together. You will take all the skills developed to date and put them together in a series of assessed exercises covering areas such as manoeuvring in traffic, safe overtaking, Eco driving and hazard awareness. We will simulate as closely as possible, the real road environment, to give them a true feel of what it will be like on the road. - Predominately in car this session will take approximately 6 hours to complete but there will be no pressure and where required manoeuvres can be repeated
