Advanced Driving

Advanced Driving

What to improve your diving skills and be more in control? Remember you are never too old to learn or improve your driving techniques.

Rural Driving

 Advanced driving is the ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely, systematically and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to make reasonable progress unobtrusively, with skill and responsibility.

Drivers take driving a vehicle for granted and a necessity of life but never think that it may be one of the most dangerous things we do daily. When driving, do you ever find yourself? If the answer is ‘Yes’ to any on the list, you may need to expand your skills.

  • Creeping above the speed limit
  • Driving too close to the vehicle in front
  • Getting distracted (e.g. mobile phone ringing, children playing up)                                       
  • Losing yourself control (shouting at other road users)

Some of the skills covered are:-

  • Observation and anticipation 
  • Awareness of hazards and risks
  • Speed awareness
  • Effective vehicle positioning e.g. when cornering

 What are the benefits:

  • Become a safer and smoother driver
  • Arrive at your destination refreshed and not stressed
  • Improve fuel consumption (between 10% – 25% depending on driver and vehicle) as advanced drivers tend to drive more economically, so less wear and tear on your engine and components (cheaper motoring !)

What happens on the course:

  1. How to check your vehicle.
  2. General assessment of your driving & feedback.
  3. Coaching of area highlighted in the general assessment.
  4. Feedback and personal training objectives.

Remember – This is only an example of the advance-driving course, so please contact a member of our training team, so that we can discuss and design a bespoke course to meet your needs.

 

Very relaxed, yet informative course. I feel I have learned some new skills today. Good mix of theory and practical.
