Engage helps learner drivers better prepare for solo driving.

Engage

Driving on your own is different to driving with an instructor. Engage looks to better prepare you for the future.

Driving well is not just purely about handing the car and dealing with traffic when travelling from A to B. It's about having the skills to drive safely whilst navigating through every day life- for example, when you have friends in the car, are late for an appointment, are tired or feeling stressed.  

Engage is a simple set of learning resources developed by local authorities to help you to deal with these issues.  Engage is delivered by specially trained instructors who will use the resources as part of your normal driving lessons.  The resources do not mean you will need more lessons, in fact they will help you to better prepare for your test, but more importantly they will help you be safer and better prepared for solo driving.
