Exemplary professional student tailored performance driver training

I firmly believe in the value of driver training, it is an investment that you can transfer to any car you drive to make you faster, safer, more competitive if you race and one day may just save your life and because of this belief I have attended sessions with many of the well known instructors both in the UK and overseas, I will not name names (save for one) however I will say it includes; – ex touring car champions – the head of chassis development for a major German manufacturer – formula 1 coaches – and many others (including karting with Tiff Needell).

It is in this context that I write this review for Cat Driver Training. Colin Hoad, the lead instructor at CATDT, has the ability to implicitly understand your needs as a driver and combined with his engineering knowledge he can explain the fundamental reasons why you are not as fast as you wish you were!

I have witnessed this on several occasions; on test days where the assembled crew of “performance drivers” had been practicing all day in the car to achieve a target time only to have Colin meet or improve our time when challenged to do the same in a single lap with no prior time in the car – this is a rare ability and is testimony to his exemplary understanding of the limits of a car…

The team at CATDT are tireless in their commitment to ensure you are satisfied as a customer and demonstrate the professional behaviors you would expect from the best large organisation whilst continuing to deliver a personal service second to none. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone that wishes to improve or hone their driving ability whether trying to get the best from your car, be safer on the road, faster on the track or learn the subtleties of the Nurburgring…
