Advanced & Defensive Course Info & Routes:
Our courses are typically split into three sections during a full and half day session. A half day is 3.5hrs and a full day, is 7hrs. Often companies opt for doing two half day sessions with one driver in the morning and one in the afternoon.
Motorway – Motorways are safe yet busy roads. They require special attention and forward planning. Because of this we always have a part of our training that covers motorways.
In Bradford we head south on the A641 towards Halifax and join the M62 and usually head west towards Leeds. Sometimes our motorway training heads east on M62 towards Rochdale area.
Rural – Rural roads in Yorkshire, as they are in most parts of the UK are considered more dangerous than all other roads. This is due to the challenging nature combined with the high speeds associated with them.
From Bradford we often head north on the A650 towards Bingley, heading off onto B and unclassified roads at times. We often pass various villages and towns such as Keighley, Utley, Steeton and more.
Depending on your location in Bradford we can head south on rural roads such as A643, and then further south towards Cleckheaton and sometimes to Dewesbury. All these roads are challenging and provide a great learning experience for delegates taking our courses.
Urban – We use the centre of Bradford for our urban training. Urban training is designed to help improve a drivers ability to deal with busy environments where there are lots of pedestrians and cyclists, and other slow moving traffic.
In Bradford we often use Manchester Road, Prince’s Way, Thornton Road plus many more. If traffic is a problem, we conduct the urban training in more out of town areas like Broomfields, Manningham, Heaton is similar.
