    Hi all

    Bought my first Ferrari earlier this year and loving it so far. Unfortunately, I'm not the best driver or the most car savvy as my interest in cars didn't start until I was quite a bit older. I was wondering if it's common or possible to get a driving instructor that would teach me to unlock the full potential of the car. I'm not even sure where to start the search. If it helps at all I'm based out of London UK.

    Thanks

    THE CORSO PILOTA WORLDWIDE
    The Corso Pilota can take place anywhere in the world, to meet the needs of customers unable to attend the courses in Italy. The course has a two-level structure, with the first a prerequisite for the second: Level 1 and Level 2. Dealership and privately owned cars are used in these courses. Please direct any enquiries about this course to the Corso Pilota office at the Ferrari factory in Maranello.

    Dealer & FNE track days have good instruction I believe & the safety of not being on the road

    There used to be a good skills tutor based at North Weald

    I went to see Andrew Walsh at North Weald, he was very good. Details available on https://www.carlimits.com/

    The UK Ferrari Owners Club track days used to have tutors available but not sure what the situation is now.

    I did Silverstone last year with FOC and there was one instructor ; who you couldn’t book and was basically “not available” due to the numbers attending. (FoC said they don’t really bother as there was little demand!!!!!!!)

    DL day yesterday there were two Ferrari instructors easily available all day long. If you have no joy elsewhere might be with giving them a call and seeing if they would put you in contact or come to a track day next year!

    Book a Ferrari track day with your local dealer, you will get a Ferrari instructor with you who will give you some guidance but it’s not full out instruction.

    I would find an instructor on an airfield, not necessarily in your car, that will give you many of the skills that will help you drive your car better, there was a school at Bruntingthorpe airfield, they may even take you out at the end in your car?
