Driver Training at Hampton Downs

Driver Training
Through professional driver training companies, Hampton Downs offers a practical and engaging learning programme designed to enhance driver confidence and capability through high quality instruction and the opportunity to experience leading edge vehicle technologies in a safe environment.

The one day driver training module is also specifically designed to support employers with their responsibilities under the new Health and Safety at Work Act of April 2016. There is no minimum purchase – book one person or 30 (which is the maximum people per day)

The course includes a mix of theoretical instruction and practical skills application across a wide curriculum from hazard recognition and accident avoidance – 90% of the time is spent on track in a safe, controlled environment with fully insured vehicles provided.

The object of the course is to give participants an active and dynamic driver experience that provides driving education and entertainment in a controlled and safe environment while teaching you to appreciate and understand the limits of technology and driving skill. At the same time, it allows you to assess and overcome potential hazards, in particular by avoiding such risks from the start. It is only with this basic knowledge of safety-related principles and the laws of driving dynamics that you can really understand and appreciate the actual situations you will experience on the road and in training.

WHAT DOES THE COURSE INCLUDE?

While elements may be varied to suit an individual or organisation, the core programme

offers a comprehensive one-day training module.

STAGE 1

The day starts at 9.00am, with a mix of 20% theoretical instruction and 80% practical
skills application across a wide curriculum from hazard recognition, defensive driving and accident avoidance to vehicle maintenance.

Participants receive interactive feedback throughout the session with a full competency assessment provided at the conclusion of the programme with a certificate of completion at approximately 4.00pm. Detailed reporting and evaluation is made available to employers, as required for their workplace safety governance.

STAGE 2

The Stage 2 course is designed for participants who have already completed the Stage 1 course. The days starts at 9.00am with a refresher of subjects covered in Stage 1. The day then proceeds with a greater emphasis on practical skills including new exercises such as lapping with cornering lines, slalom and vehicle dynamics. As with the Stage 1 course, participants receive interactive feedback throughout the session with a full competency assessment provided at the conclusion of the programme with a certificate of completion at approximately 4.00pm. Detailed reporting and evaluation is made available to employers, as required for their workplace safety governance.
