This is a course only for qualified drivers that can call themselves experienced motorists. The course can be run in our driving school car, or your own vehicle.
The course focuses on improvement in driving standards and getting more enjoyment out of driving. We will show you how to drive more smoothly and economically, putting less wear and tear on your car and probably improving fuel consumption. That alone will make it pay for the training in the long run.
Leaving the cost aside, the course may well save your life one day. The techniques for recognising and dealing with hazards are far in advance of what you learned when preparing for your L-test, and you may have picked up some bad habits since then, anyway.
Talking of techniques, before coming on this course we expect you to prepare yourself by reading and study the advanced driving techniques advocated in the Police Drivers’ Handbook – “Roadcraft”. Make it a priority to know the “System of Car Control”; the three types of road hazard and the “Driving Plan”.
The training routes will be predominately out of town on country roads. This will help prepare you to take one of the Advanced Driving Tests, if you wish to. Some insurance companies offer a discount on the premium, but not all.
We can also recommend specialist instructors for skid-car training on North Weald Airfield and also preparation for the original advanced driving course – “HPC” – The High Performance Course.
Our driving school delivers advanced driving lessons, driving from East London into the counties of Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.
Our lesson times are weekdays between 8am and 7pm, Saturday mornings 8am until 1pm. We also run lessons on occasional Sundays.
