Very recently on the BBC there was a piece on the poor safety statistics for Lincolnshire Roads.  It is actually making the point that deaths and serious injury on rural (country) roads in the UK had been steadily declining at nearly half the rate in 2012 that it was in 2005.  However, since 2012, the trend is reversed and is currently getting significantly worse.  As Lincolnshire has 155,000 miles of rural roads, they chose to come to our county and more than that they actually visited the “new” Peterborough to Spalding bypass due to the number of fatalities it has had in the 5 years since its construction.  If you monitor BIG TOM Driving School social links you will see that BIG TOM Intensive Driving Course customers get to drive on that particular stretch of road precisely for the reason of developing the skill of recognising when driving conditions worsen and danger is ahead.  It is a vital skill to develop and BIG TOM Intensive Driving Courses specifically feature that particular road – this is an opportunity that may not be available (due to time restrictions) on traditional pay as you go driving lessons.  There are other particular areas that are covered on BIG TOM Intensive Driving Courses which we would be happy to share with you should you want to know.  HERE IS THE LINK to the show which we recommend you take time out to watch (there are 2 separate clips in the show, both worth watching):

The Christmas 2015 THINK! Drink Drive Campaign: In The Doghouse #butalive is HERE.

The Driving Examiner strike action has now passed.  Our local test centres were affected unfortunately.  Do remember that if you prefer, we do offer at BIG TOM Driving School to take the stress and frustration of booking tests away from you, by providing a special service for BIG TOM Intensive Driving Course customers only.  This has the added benefit of easily arranging tests that suit both your own diary whilst also making sure the driving school is available for the test slot too.  It is possible for us to help you jump the long driving test queues.

Tom from BIG TOM Driving School is attending the last CPD training event for 2015 later this week.  He enrolled on the BTEC 4 Professional Award in Coaching for Driver Development earlier this year, and part of the course is to attend 1 day sessions and this next one is in Newport Pagnell.  Any pupils of BIG TOM Driving School from Grantham, Peterborough, Bourne, Sleaford, Stamford or Spalding who would be prepared to have parts of their intensive driving course recorded and provide their thoughts and feelings for the purposes of enabling Tom to formally record his progress, are encouraged to show their willingness to assist.  There are a number of ways that the driving school can thank you for your assistance in this regard and we would be happy to discuss this further.

BIG TOM Intensive Driving courses in Grantham, Peterborough, Sleaford, Bourne, Spalding and Stamford are available within a choice of 2 slots per day.  We offer our customers either 8-12 or 1-5 slots, this is because the feedback from our customers tells us that this choice can be important for busy people with other commitments.  Do also remember that at BIG TOM, the sessions start and finish at the customers chosen pick up point which can be a work or home address; another example of the flexibility provided by BIG TOM Driving School.
