Welcome to Learn to Drive With Dyslexia & Dyspraxia Course

You may be lucky and have an instructor who understands the issues you may face, and who uses different strategies to help you. However, we see so many people who struggle to learn, become frustrated and disheartened at how long the process is taking, and feel that they will never pass their driving test. It’s a good idea to discuss this course with your instructor and talk to them about the different strategies they can use to aid your learning. It’s important for everyone to be taught in their preferred style, but especially so if you have dyslexia/dyspraxia.

So often people think dyslexia is ‘just muddling letters up’, but you know it’s so much more than that. From sequencing issues to short term memory problems, from processing and recalling information to muddling up left and right, dyslexia can affect you in many different ways, especially when learning to drive. This course is packed full of techniques to help you to remember more and to make learning to drive much more enjoyable.  Some of the techniques can be used during your lessons and some can be done at home between lessons.  By using this course, you should be able to pass your test in fewer repetitive lessons as you will remember more from each lesson!

This course features Colleen Pearson, who is a dyslexia assessor and tutor but also has dyspraxia herself. She shares her unique insight into what it’s like learning to drive with dyslexia and dyspraxia, and gives valuable advice on the theory test, driving lessons, the practical test and driving after you have passed!

You will also have full, unlimited access to the Preferred Learning Styles course, including the quizzes, to determine your own preferred style of learning. This means that your instructor can tailor the lesson to how you like to learn. This should not only reduce the number of lessons you will need, but also make your lessons much more enjoyable.

Love her!

I couldn't believe how well color-coding the different gears, left and right, mirrors, signal, and maneuvering would help me remember everything. Diane has turned on the light in my head, making me feel more at ease with my dyslexia and seeing that I have a talent. Diane has been fantastic.
