3.85 based on 159 ratings & 14 reviews on


Welcome to the next chapter of your driving education.

Former Top Gear Stig Ben Collins shares expert skills and wisdom refined over a twenty-year career as one of the best drivers in the world - from Le Mans Series racing to NASCAR, piloting the Batmobile and dodging bullets with James Bond.

Ben's philosophy of anticipation, smoothness and speed, honed over thousands of hours of elite-level performance, is really about economy of motion - which also gives you greater control, safety and fuel efficiency. How To Drive is about driving better, not faster.

Whether you've been behind the wheel for the best part of thirty years or you bought your first L-plate ten seconds ago, this is the stuff your instructor missed, your dad forgot and your mates pretend to know . . . but don't.
