Many drivers are finding their stress levels increasing and their enjoyment of


driving on today's busy roads disappearing fast - so if you're one of them, why


not take one of Hertfordshire County Council's driving courses to restore your


enjoyment and boost your confidence?



Hertfordshire County Council is running a five week course in Stevenage in September,


designed to enhance your skills as well as help you get more from your driving and avoid


dangerous situations which could result in an accident.


The Stevenage course starts on September 21 at The Nobel School, for five Tuesdays


from 7 to 9pm, finishing with a practical assessment and demonstration drive on Sunday


October 17 at the Ramada Hotel (Comet) in Hatfield.


Hertfordshires roads are some of the busiest in the country and these courses are a


great way to keep yourself and others safe on our roads. The better you can drive, the


more likely you are to stay relaxed and safe, said Stuart Pile, Executive Member for


Highways and Transport.


"In particular we would encourage parents of Stevenage school children to sign up. If


walking or taking the bus isnt an option, the daily school run is often a demanding drive,


and the course will provide you with some great advice and techniques to get you to the


school gates and back safely."


A recent participant on the course said: "I found the course really interesting and


enjoyed trying out the new driving techniques we were shown. I had begun to find my


daily commute seriously stressful but now I feel much more relaxed and in control."


The course costs 45, which includes all textbooks and the practical assessment, with a


concession rate of 30 for students and people who are retired, unemployed or receiving


benefits.


For more information, or to book a place on the course, please call 01992 556818 or
