We don't do Driver Training. We educate people who drive cars. To us, this is an important distinction.

What Cars?

PA55 RAP with Stephen We presently teach in cars from the Volkswagen group (VW, Audi, Seat, Škoda), with petrol engines and automatic transmissions (which means no clutch pedal, no gearstick). These are regularly updated and from time to time alternative new vehicles may be introduced.

Green Cars!

We are particularly interested in the transition to battery-electric vehicles and are actively researching the market to identify the right electric car for us. In the meantime, we have invested in converting our cars to use LPG fuel, sometimes known as "autogas". LPG is essentially a mix of propane and butane, both natural gases that, unlike petrol and diesel, do not have to be manufactured in an oil refinery. LPG burns much cleaner than petrol and the exhasut is much less damaging to the environment.

LPG makes absolutely no difference to the driver and actually helps our cars run even more smoothly and quietly, as well as cleaner.

We did the sums, and converting to and running on LPG is cheaper and cleaner than running diesel or petrol cars.
