Total Control Masterclass Driver Training Course Review

I have owned my McLaren 570S Spider for around 18 months now, and for 14 of those months had been, if I am honest, fairly intimidated by it. I had owned a performance car for 4 years prior to the McLaren, but not at its level of capability. Having had a few scary moments in the previous car, I promised myself I would ‘learn’ how to drive this one properly. Helpfully, another McLaren Owners’ Club member added a comprehensive post on social media explaining that they had spent a few days with you on one of your courses and it sounded absolutely ideal for me.

My Total Control Masterclass was a fantastic three days: I learnt so much about the car, about roadcraft and also about myself! I was so impressed with the training and so impressed with the car! It has given me a much deeper understanding of what both the car and I are capable of, as well as many aspects of driver safety and awareness – both the car and I were comprehensively tested!

As a result of my time with you, I have enjoyed the last 4 months of McLaren ownership so much more that the first 14 months! I have driven much more smoothly and understood so much more about what I am looking at, the road and its conditions and what the car is telling me. I have to admit that I had doubts about whether I really wanted a car like this, and questioned my decision over whether I should have bought it. Not now!!! It was a great purchase, I just hadn’t appreciated it and had perhaps given the car too much respect?

I recently did a supercar experience day and was complimented on my smooth and fast driving, with the instructor saying he had enjoyed his laps with me. He said he could tell I had been taught! I have also recently driven my car in a charitable event and received very similar feedback from the organisers on the standard of my fast and smooth driving with particular note on my understanding of how to drive driving appropriately for visibility and road conditions. This sort of feedback, I think, reinforces the ethos of the training and I was very pleased to hear it from people who hadn’t known at the time that I had undertaken any kind of tuition.

As you predicted Ivan, my better half is also very happy as my driving has become a lot safer and smoother in her eyes! Many thanks Ivan; your hard work and patience has been worthwhile and importantly has stuck with me! I look forward to some more time together next year to progress my knowledge further, whether that be on the road or on the track.
