"Years of experience gained in two days - first class team and facilities. I completed day one and two of the track driving course in my own car with no prior track experience and it was incredible. I recently bought a AMG GTC - a 550bhp RWD car - and felt like an imposter driving it. Surely anyone owning a car like this should be able to drive it properly, right? Taking the decision to get proper instruction has made me fall even more in love with my new car and I feel completely at home in it now. The course material was delivered one-to-one at my own speed and very hands on. Everything is described, intellectually discussed and verified and then physically experienced in real time. There is no better way to learn than this, touching all three extremes on the VAK spectrum and building strong networks of neurons for each topic that will last forever. I did session with both Paul and Colin and they are extremely knowledgeable, personable and genuinely passionate about the topic - which is infectious. You are learning directly from people with decades of experience and no question was beyond their knowledge. On day one I learned a lot, but mostly I realised how little I actually knew about driving a car. Day two really built on the knowledge gained and I now have the skills to be able to take a car to track and build up to a reasonable and consistent lap time. The exercises have also made me safer on the road. The facilities at UTAC/Millbrook are amazing, the alpine loops are so much fun to drive. Learning the limits of your car in this environment far exceeds what you could ever achieve safely on the road or on your own. The only thing I will warn you about is that you might get the driving bug even worse than before, I am itching to do some track days now. But seriously, if you actually want to learn how to properly handle any car then do not hesitate to book with CAT, first class team and facilities."
"A fantastic day I had high expectations of my day with CAT Driver Training but they were exceeded by the amazing day I had with my coach Paul. The way in which he took time to understand my personal objectives and built a day around them was exemplary. The building block approach to developing the skills and capabilities to drive to the best of your ability worked incredibly well. I was staggered by my improvement from beginning to end and was ultimately able to drive with confidence, consistency, smoothness and pace that I could never have previously imagined. Despite the price tag, it was great value for money and an experience from which I will benefit for years to come. Roll on Friday's track day!"
"CAT Driver Training provided everything that I set out to learn and much more. Paul is a very talented instructor with excellent communication skills. He has a great talent for encouraging the student to self diagnose problems and work out what they need to change to improve their performance. He also has an innate ability to judge the depth of technical knowledge that the student is able to assimilate and he pitched this perfectly with me. A perfect day and great value for money. If you own a high performance car invest in driver training before spending money on performance parts and track days." Andy Moorhouse 3 Sept 21
"What a great day! Just had a fantastic day with Colin, Paul, Jo and Lynne at CAT Driver Training. The whole team worked incredibly hard to ensure everyone had a safe and enjoyable day and I can only imagine what has had to be done behind the scenes to be able to continue doing what they do so well in these current CV-19 times."
"Fantastic day at Silverstone with Colin at a track day. Great balance of explaining the technical engineering behind driving technique as well how to practically implement it. Colin layered additional detail throughout the day which helped me to progressively build confidence with the car and the track and push closer to grip limit with a graduated approach. Thanks Colin!"
"Highly recommend CAT for any driving skill improvements. Absolutely recommend CAT for anyone looking to improve their overall driving ability and skill whether it be for day to day road driving or improving lap times on a track. I spent a day there with Colin and after just going in the simulator for a few hours the next day I can see a huge improvement in my driving. great advice, great coaching technique and a very friendly approach. I was most impressed by the way Colin went in to detail around the science behind driving with precision while on the limit, I found this aspect extremely informative and helpful. Great day and great results, thank you."
"Compounded, retained learnings. I’ve been back to Colin at CAT driver training several times now. Each time I learn new techniques that build on the sum total of the previous days. The teaching methods and practical application mean that the skill is learned, rather than temporarily replicated. This is realized when you come back, and everything feels immediately familiar. What you learned last time becomes the base for today’s instruction. I’m getting better, not just driving well under guidance on the day."
"Performance Driver Course - Amazing! An excellent course for those who want to gain confidence, learn about the dynamics of their car and most of all be able to approach driving quickly in a safe way, in my case specifically on track. I personally did the course as having done a few track days, I was driving nowhere near the limits of the car and quite honestly didn't have the confidence to do so, not knowing how the car would react when I did. It just isn't possible to safely explore this on the roads and even on track days is not ideal as spinning out doesn't come without it's risks. From the initial enquiries with Jo, who was very accommodating, being able to shuffle dates around for example, I felt like I was getting a very personal service which helped me feel at ease as it's not the cheapest course out there..but you do get what you pay for! Arriving at Millbrook was smooth with Paul waiting to pick me up. I had a few initial concerns with how COVID would affect the training but I needn't have worried, face masks on and we cracked on, no concerns there at all. Paul was brilliant, very friendly and great explanations along the way of what we were doing as well as more casual chats on other subjects which really helped the initial nerves of doing a course like this. A great instructor and really knows how to get the best out of you and push you to break through any confidence issues with certain situations. Millbrook doesn't need much explanation, an amazing place, one of it's kind in this country and petrol head heaven. I've done a few other driving training type courses but none come close to offering what you get here, it's all in one place and bespoke designed to show you what your car can really do. If you want to learn how to really be able to drive your car and understand what it's actually doing at the same time and the theory behind it, look no further."
"Impressive Colin was all that his reputation had led me to expect, and more !. Colin has that good coaching knack of precisely balancing the mix of technical theory and practical implementation in order to meet each individual's personal learning style. I was particularly impressed when he very quickly pin pointed and diagnosed where I was having a particular difficulty that I had highlighted, and coached me through rectifying the problem. I cannot wait now for my next track day in order to practice the tools I’ve been given by Colin, which will make my track days more fulfilling and certainly more controlled and inherently safer."
