Advanced & Defensive Driving Courses Bedford
We provide advanced and defensive driver training for companies and private individuals in and around Bedford. Conducting an advanced driving course in Bedford is ideal for a number of reasons. The main being it’s location. It’s far enough from London not to be at a constant standstill (although in rush hour this is debatable!), and it has quick access to a range of rural roads and motorways – both of which are used in our training sessions.
We cover this area + All of the UK – We come to you for the training:
We provide bespoke advanced/defensive driver training to companies and private individuals, using our national network of DVSA registered advanced driving instructors.
Our advanced driving courses in Bedford cover urban driving, rural driving and motorway driving. Urban driving takes place in the centre of Bedford, plus also out towards areas such as Shortstown, Wootton, and Willington, which although are not classed as urban areas are great for driving in built up areas, without the city centre traffic.
Rural driving allows us to head towards St Noets, Royston, or towards Milton Keynes depending on your location, or how long you require training for. The M1 is our main road of choice for the motorway portion of the training.
There is no rigid format for the training, although we do like to train drivers on a wide range of roads.
During a session we typically look at:
* Forward planning and observation
* Speed awareness
* Developing a positive attitude towards safer driving
* How to become a safer driver on all roads
* Car or van control (gears, steering, foot controls, signals)
* Rules of the road
* Dealing with road rage
* Reversing and manoeuvres
* Dealing with adverse weather
* Town and urban defensive driving
* Driving in heavy traffic and allowing adequate space
* Skid control theory and learning what causes skids
* Eco-safe driving (effective use of speed, gears, planning)
* Anticipation – Learning to see and not just look
* Understanding other road users and their intentions
We currently offer a range of courses, based on time. These are designed for drivers of all abilities, experience and budget ranges:
3.5hr – Our shortest course, ideal for those that need a short session for a range of reasons. Also popular for company clients who are training many drivers
2 x 3.5hr – If a full day is too much, and a half day not long enough, then our 2 x 3.5hr session is a great alternative. It allows time to absorb what has been taught on the first session, and to then carry on and progress on the final session
7hr full day – A full day can be hard for some drivers, but for others is a great duration as it gets the training completed in one day, and is cheaper than splitting it over 2 sessions.
For those that want more of a comprehensive session we offer 3 – 4 and 5 x 3.5hr sessions. Designed for those with significant issues that need addressing, or for those that simply want the maximum level of bespoke one to one training possible.
We can provide training for a half day or full day. What we do tend to find, is that many companies opt for a 2:1 format, so one driver can go out with our tutor for 3.5hrs and another then goes out in the afternoon for the same time. We also have longer duration courses, for those that want to improve their driving over a longer period, which is more popular for private customers.
