accelerate exists to minimise the risk of death or serious injury in a road crash caused by young drivers
Recent Test Success
Many congratulations to Jade Rozycki who passed her practical test at the 1st attempt on Tues 16th May recording just 2 faults! Jade lives in Crowthorne and studies at Reading College learning to drive with trainer/coach Rob. Rob says, 'Jade is taking the diligent approach to driving that all young drivers should be taking. She worked incredibly hard for her theory test and passed well. With excellent support from her parents and an approach which she herself determined of not going to test until she was sure she was not just test ready but a SAFE driver she achieved this great practical test result. Jade has attended the nationally recognised accelerate Safer Young Driver Workshop and will go on to take her RoSPA Advanced Test in 6-8 weeks' time. Jade epitomises what all young drivers should be doing to keep themselves and as importantly, other road users, SAFE. You thoroughly deserve to have made this fine achievement'.
Many congratulations to Beth Bamford from Farnham, who after 2 unsuccessful attempts working with another local instructor, came to accelerate and passed at the 1st subsequent test recording just 2 driving faults – one of the them for a slight correction on the bay park at the beginning for the test and the 2nd for a challenge with the soft touch indicators! Beth not only had to learn new techniques she also had to undo those which previously were not taught to best practice standards, making the training doubly challenging! More creditable is that Beth only started her lessons with us 10 days prior to this success on Friday 23rd June, having not driven for approx. 2 years! Leigh, the examiner thanked Beth for ‘a beautiful drive’. Trainer/coach Rob says, ‘Beth has worked incredibly hard to make this fantastic achievement. She had strict deadlines to meet and there is inevitable additional pressure as the number of tests increases. A whole day of driving the day before your test is far from ideal but it produced and exceeded the required results.
Well done, Beth!
A huge congratulations to Caroline Thomas of Heatherside and The 6th Form College Farnborough who passed her practical test at the first attempt on 16th June with zero driving faults! Caroline had 50 hours of tuition with accelerate coach Jan which was supported by lots of private practise at home.
Well done Caroline!
Congratulations to James Norwood of Bracknell and Berkshire College of Agriculture who passed his practical test on 3rd June at his first attempt! James started lessons with accelerate coach Damien on 10th March 2017. He also had lots of support with private practise from his Mum and Dad.
Well done James!
Congratulations to Polly Boyles from Well, who passed her practical test at the 1st attempt on Sat 29th April. Polly has had to work extremely hard to become a confident, competent and safe driver, all of that effort paying off with this excellent result. Much credit must be given to her Mum & Dad who helped Polly with many hours of private practice to supplement the work undertaken with trainer/coach, Rob.
Pat yourself on the back Polly - you deserve to be proud!
Well done, and again, many congratulations!
Congratulations to Hannah Spite of Yateley and Salesian College Farnborough who passed her test on 11th April recording only 2 driving faults. Hannah had 44 hours of tuition with Coach Damien and many hours of private practise with her Dad. Hannah is a very dedicated dancer who worked very hard to learn to drive, sometimes sacrificing her only free time to maintain consistency! She is now looking forward to doing her pass plus!
Well done Hannah!
