Overview

Take your driving to the next level
The aim of the Advanced Driving course is to provide post license driver training to raise awareness, skill levels and assess attitude and the potential dangers associated with the wrong attitude. It is ideal for Corporate Fleet Training, recently acquired K53 or experienced road users.
This is achieved through a mixture of theoretical and practical driving sessions conducted at a recognised training venue in the participants own vehicles. The Advanced Driving Course is suitable for young drivers right up to the more experienced drivers that just need to hone their skills. It can be conducted in any roadworthy vehicle from the smallest sedan right up to 4 x 4 and light commercial vehicles. A fleet of vehicles are available for various requirements.
All Advanced driving courses are conducted in a relaxed, enjoyable way encouraging participant interaction and involvement. The focus of the day is definitely not on driving fast and dangerously! After initial introductions a lecture session will explain about and provide a vital evaluation of driver attitude and an awareness of the inherent dangers of driving on the road.
Advanced driving techniques, driver attitude and vision will be covered together with correct use of modern safety features. An explanation of the correct braking techniques will be covered before being put to the test in a practical demonstration. Participants will then be subjected to potential emergency braking situations on a wet surfaces.
