CAT Driver Training are proud to have hit the milestone of 1,000 reviews on Trustpilot, positioning us as the highest rated dynamic driver training experts in the UK.

CATDT Celebrate 1000 reviews

Since our beginning in 2005, CAT Driver Training has been delivering unique engineering expertise to a wide range of driving enthusiasts and professionals. Our bespoke dynamic training is tailored to all aspects of driving: Road, Track, Race & the Motor Industry. We've taught police accident investigators, insurers, engineers, racing drivers, track enthusiasts, road drivers... the list goes on.

Whether our client is an OEM, startup or individual, we recognise placing trust in a driver training provider requires a huge amount of confidence.

Customer driven; our passion is to take great care of our clients, exceed expectations and deliver the highest quality learning. Every training session is tailored to the driver, their car and their personal objectives. As a result, each valued client has their own, unique experience. Who better to share the true values of CAT Driver Training than our clients. Subsequently, their reviews do the talking and we are proud to have held the coveted “Excellent” 5/5 rating on Trustpilot since subscribing in October 2015.

On reaching this new milestone, Co-owner and Chief Instructor at CAT Driver Training, Colin Hoad, shares: "Over the year's we've come to rely on Trustpilot for customers to tell their own stories about our services. It's not right for us to say how good our coaching is, it's down to the people that we've coached and worked with.

If you look through the many reviews, they really do tell the story with an accurate assessment of who we are and what we stand for. The level of training, how we coach and the general flavour and feel for who CATDT really is.

In addition to the 1,000 Trustpilot reviews, we recently trained our 7,000th client – another landmark. Reaching these milestones is a very proud moment for the entire CATDT team , made possible due to the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure that when clients arrive they receive a first class experience."

Co-Owner, Jo Hoad personally reads and replies to every single review: “It's always a joy to read about objectives met, confidence made, skills developed and happy memories made. Each review brings a smile to our face.”

In addition to taking the time to leave in-depth reviews, our clients have also helped us donate over £10,000 to six different charities since 2019. You really are amazing! We share this milestone with you, without whom this wouldn’t be possible.

As CAT Driver Training accelerates towards the future, we remain steadfast in our commitment to empowering drivers, exceeding expectations, and upholding our legacy as the epitome of dynamic driver training excellence.

Here are some of our favourite reviews from the last 8 years…

Fantastic day with CAT Driver Training

"I spent the day with Paul doing the ‘Track Performance L1’ course.
Paul was a superb instructor, and made a real effort to structure the things he was teaching me in way that suited my learning style. I have much more of an understanding about what both myself and my vehicle are capable of, but also, crucially, an understanding of why the car can behave the way it does in different situations. This is important not only because it means I have an understanding of how I can influence the car to behave how I want it to, but also because it also adds predictability and control to a very dynamic situation.

I feel like I’ve learnt a huge amount, but also had a huge amount of fun in the process. One of the best experiences I’ve had.

Thank you CAT, and Paul.

I fully intend to return and, hopefully, cement what I’ve already learnt, and also broaden my newfound knowledge even further.”

A truly memorable & premium experience

"I'm sure five stars is no surprise to see here. This was an absolutely outstanding, completely premium experience. Millbrook is an amazing place to be sure, but the care, attention and sheer passion from the CAT training team is palpable. Paul, Steve and Lynne together created a wonderful day for us that will last in the memory. Thank you again guys for a GREAT day. I cannot recommend this highly enough for anyone that loves driving. Warm regards, Bill Hester”

Over Grip Limit & Drifting Track Course

"I had my training from Colin. What impresses most is not just the content of what you learn but how you learn. Colin puts a lot of effort into understanding and relating to you, your existing skill level and your specific wants from the day. Colin's main concern is your development, rather than just imparting knowledge on you. In Millbrook you also have the perfect environment in which to practice. The combination ensures your day of learning, which ever course is best suited to your current needs, is as effective as possible.”

This was my next stage race car driver training

"This was my next stage race driver training to fine tune braking and car rotation, Colin as always got me to where I needed to be before next weekends race meeting. Learnt lots had great fun doing it, Also my wife Sarah spent time getting confident in the car and now wants to race too, so ARDS time for her, just a great day 😀.”

Learned more about my car in one day than 12,000 miles

"Got back late last night after a day at the Millbrook proving ground with CAT Driver Training. I booked it through PCGB. All I can say is wow. I learned more in one day about my 911 turbos’s handling, characteristics and abilities in one day than 12,000 miles of driving since getting her 18 months ago. No it’s not a car killing track day, it’s theory, then practical, discuss what you did right or wrong and could feel, practical again then next area driving. Instructor in the car at all times with you for the practical. I’m so glad I went and would encourage anyone of any ability (or not) to go.”

"You will not find a better, or more relevant, driver safety training course. Hugely impressed with the team's knowledge, skill, passion, enthusiasm and ability to read the group. What an amazing day!”
