The report contains the following topics:
Courtesy to strangers
Areas of challenge

An example Driving Report for John Smith
Patience as a driver
Increasingly we have to learn to be more patient on the roads. There are more and more cars, so it is inevitable that your patience will be tested.
Here’s where it works for you
If it is for a task that will achieve the desired result you can be very patient and stick with it until it is completed John. People can sometimes try your patience, particularly if they seem indolent to you.
When driving you know it is important to stay alert and you want others on the roads to understand that this is not something nice to do but a must!
Here’s what you need to watch out for
You are certainly not patient when other drivers cut you up on the road John. This is a challenge you can easily overcome by biting the bullet and recognising that they are the ones who will come to grief and ensure that it is not your lack of patience that will cause an accident.
Make doubly sure that you are indicating in plenty of time and in the right way using the correct lane and you will be demonstrating excellent patience!
Which car icon represents your driving personality?
To help you communicate and share this report with your friends we have allocated you with a classic car icon that best represents your personality type.
Don’t read too much into it. It’s not saying that this is your favourite car. It’s merely giving you something to help you communicate with others.
The classic car that best represents you is a Rolls Royce
Courtesy to Strangers when Driving
Courtesy is something that can be learned and is often a result of how people have been brought up.
There are however natural tendencies within people’s natural behaviour that impact on how they treat others. Being courteous on the road saves lives.
Your natural style
Although you are fast-paced John, you like to be liked and you do take the time to deliver some pleasantries before getting down to business therefore people see you as courteous. Your will gleam with happiness when giving way to someone.
What you need to watch out for
Not everybody is moved by your motivational style John. Some people may like your road courtesy whereas some may see you as passive.
Of course you need to learn the skills of driving but one you have mastered those, it will be your personality that will influence your bad driving in the future. And bad driving isn’t safe driving.
Here’s what works for you
You can be impatient with people less competent than yourself. You set high standards for yourself and expect the same from the rest of the world. Unfortunately many drivers on the road are far from competent and this upsets you John when you encounter them.
Here’s what to watch out for
Getting you to cope calmly with a world of poor drivers will not be easy but it will be worth it, as it will result in fewer incidents and make life a little easier for you. You have a strong sense of responsibility, however you are also passionate and can become greatly agitated by others’ stupidity, which could make you a little less self controlled than usual
Driving well? Here’s why
Driving is of course a skill and your driving instructor will help you attain this skill however beyond that your personality; your attitude if you like, affects how you drive.
Here’s what works well
John you are focused and aware of what’s going on around you which makes you a good driver, and you are only too aware that if anyone is responsible for your actions it is you. You are objective and self-sufficient and can screen out most incompetence you see on the road.
Here’s what you need to look out for
John you apply your usual controlling characteristics to your driving which you do in a no nonsense style. You will never be compared with a boy racer and if you ever do drive fast, you will have carefully calculated any risks well in advance.
