Post-Collision Driving Course
All trainers who specialise in our post-collision driving courses have experience developing drivers who have been involved in serious or traumatic accidents. Our goal is to not only get you back to where you were before your collision but improve your confidence even further.
Helping You To Regain Confidence
Our courses are designed for drivers who have lost their confidence due to a collision, regardless of who was at fault. We aim to help drivers to develop their skills, showing them that the experience they already have is the most valuable asset in getting them comfortable with being back behind the wheel. During the course, you will cover many different topics, including:
- Understanding what happened
- Vehicle maintenance and upkeep
- Familiarisation with road layout and signage
- Using vehicle position to your advantage
- Getting you back in the driver’s seat
- Building your confidence in traffic
What To Expect From The Course
The day will start with an in-depth analysis of the event that occurred and assessing the cause. Our team are highly experienced and ever so patient, so do not worry if you feel as if you will struggle to recap the accident.
Once we have a background understanding, we can look at the theory, road layout and signage to ensure your knowledge is up to date. The next step will be to look at techniques that could have helped you avoid or minimise the collision, such as managing observation, speed and positioning.
When you feel comfortable enough to get back in the driver’s seat, we will build your confidence by driving through many different traffic scenarios; however, we can alter this if there is a specific route that you wish to cover. During the drive, you will implement all of the above theory to build your self-confidence in traffic.
Fleet Assessment For Occupational Road Risk Management
To ensure that your company can continue to maintain a high standard of health and safety, it is always recommended to have drivers who have been involved in collisions (regardless of fault) assessed. Our tailor-made courses will ensure that drivers are safe, legal and following company drivers handbook procedures correctly. They will also allow drivers to reassure their understanding of the vehicle, its operation and controls. We will endeavour to achieve this in a sensitive nature as collisions inevitably affect drivers confidence.

Sharing Excellent Feedback
"I had a nasty accident about a year after passing my driving test, and it completely knocked my confidence. I started to dread driving and would avoid it whenever I could, so my partner booked me a post collision course with Pure Driving. I was so anxious at first, but my instructor completely put me at ease and took everything so slowly. We went over the things that would worry me the most in quite areas and then built up my confidence to go on busy roads. It’s honestly completely changed how I feel about driving and made me feel as excited as I was when I first passed, so I couldn’t thank you enough! "
