Specialist Driver Training for Drivers with SEN and Learning Differences image

 1nfluence provide driver training for those with special needs, learning difficulties, high anxiety or those who just experience difficulties with the whole process of learning to drive.

Every individual learns differently. 1nfluence Driver Training have experience of many different conditions, but understand that how you are affected may be completely different from the next person with the same diagnosis.

Lin is an experienced, specialist instructor and has worked with drivers with…

Aspergers, autism / ASD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy, ADHD /ADD, high anxiety, PTSD, bipolar, Tourette’s, OCDs, fibromyalgia, those recovering from seizures and stroke, those who are profoundly deaf, selective mute plus many physical disabilities.

Some of these conditions may well cause difficulties with learning to drive, but Lin will do her best to understand your condition and recognise your individual requirements; building a creative package that suits you, while working with you in an encouraging, positive way.

Lin is aware of the different techniques that may help with your learning for the theory test too. She can provide specialist one to one tuition and help with the booking process for taking the test to ensure that all possible extra help is applied for. Single lessons are available from £58 per hour. (For full details please see our Business Terms and Conditions).

In some cases, special needs provision can be requested for the practical test, giving you the best opportunity to showcase your driving ability.

What people have said…

“Learning to drive with dyslexic and dyspraxic tendencies was the most difficult thing I have ever tried to do. After having two instructors that did not have the patience to teach me to drive, I started having lessons with Lin. I was very anxious, but Lin was patient and got me to focus on the positives from each lesson. I never thought I’d actually become a driver, but Lin believed in me. The day I passed my test I was so shocked and happy! I’d definitely recommend Lin to anyone learning to drive. Choosing the right instructor for you is so important and Im so glad I learned with Lin.”

Kirsty Goss

“It was our lucky day when our internet trawling landed us on Lin Webb at 1nfluence Driver Training. Our 35 year old dyslexic daughter Hannah Burton, who felt she would never be able to drive, especially after a couple of test failures in her teens, decided she might try again and we resolved to try to find someone who specialised in helping those with special difficulties. Enter Lin Webb. Her kind, empathetic approach and her ability to find ways to communicate specifically for a student who needed something that bit different, resulted in our daughter’s success today. We cannot thank her enough. You will gather that we highly recommend her!”

Ever heard this before? Have you had it said to you or a loved one? The way dyspraxia affects one person will not necessarily be the same for someone else, it can be so varied and different for each individual person, there isn't such a thing as a 'typical' dyspraxic.

Almost a year ago today, I finally decided to pluck up the courage to learn to drive at the age of 38.
With no experience and a massive lack of confidence on the road I contacted Lin from 1nfluence, as she had worked with a colleague and I felt she sounded perfect for me.
I knew that overcoming my anxiety and lack of confidence while learning to drive wouldn’t be easy for me and that I would probably take longer than most to become the driver I wanted to be, but Lin gave me the encouragement and support I needed to help me achieve my goal bit by bit. Now, after passing my driving test first time with no faults at all, I feel I have gained everything I need to become a safe and confident driver.
I would recommend 1nfluence to anybody of any ability, or age who are considering driving lessons because they deliver a high standard of teaching and especially confidence building. I never thought I would be in control of a moving vehicle and although I took baby steps to begin with, I feel this is the biggest accomplishment for me and couldn’t have done it without Lin’s help.
Not only can I drive confidently at a high standard, but I believe in me outside of the car too!!🙂
Thank you Lin!
