Advanced & Defensive Driving Courses Brighton
We help a number of companies and private customers based in Brighton with bespoke driver training. The vast majority of them have decided to take action and make themselves or their drivers safer whilst on the road.
Some companies have trained just one or two drivers, while others have decided to train their entire workforce. For private customers, we offer a wide range of training for all ages and experiences.
Some years ago, we noticed that despite the vital importance of improving road safety, it simply was not that easy to find high-quality, bespoke driver training to cater for your own specific needs and requirements. This is where we come in. We make high-quality, bespoke driver training convenient and easily accessible for customers. With a focus on outstanding quality, we produce a personal, one-to-one service backed by a skilled team of experts.
We cover all of Brighton + 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 training is bespoke to all drivers, and after each course, we will send a full driving report, so you can see how a driver has improved during their session and to have documentation that driver training with a professional had taken place.
Our advanced driving courses in Brighton are conducted by DVSA advanced driving instructors.
We have a number of tutors in Brighton, and unlike other training providers, we start training from your location; this can be the office or another mutual location. We also have over 200 tutors around the UK, so if you have several locations around the UK, this is fine for us.
For all our bespoke driving courses in Brighton, we provide training on a range of roads and different areas, which can include:
Motorway training – Brighton is a popular and vibrant coastal town situated on the south coast between Worthing and Eastbourne. Although Brighton does not have a dedicated motorway as such, there are a few faster routes, such as the A27 along the coast towards Chichester and the A23 into Crawley. We use these fast routes to link into the motorway system to help drivers gain confidence when driving in multi-lane situations. The faster speed and higher traffic volume are a real worry for some. Many drivers will avoid them at all costs, often adding time to simple journeys. Entering and exiting busy junctions can be an issue, but we can teach you how to do this at the right speed and in safety and show you how to change lanes and overtake when necessary. This will help drivers avoid large lorries or vans blocking the forward view and allow for better observations and road scanning.
Rural Roads – The roads around Brighton are primarily coastal, and the roads northbound lead into the beautiful countryside. Unfortunately, rural and coastal routes are infamous for more severe road accidents. These are mainly due to being unfamiliar with the area or taking risks, such as speeding in areas without speed cameras. If we look at the A259 from Brighton to Seaford via Peacehaven, this road has been the site of hundreds of accidents and, due to the location, probably involving drivers who are not local to the area. Ditchling Road and Underhill Road are other inland accident hotspots, merging into the B2116. These roads have seen some very nasty collisions. Knowing how to drive safely in rural environments is vital, especially if you want to enjoy the fantastic countryside that East Sussex has to offer.
Urban Training – The south coast has some of the busiest towns in the UK, especially in the summer months. To the north of Brighton, there have been large housing and retail developments, but the town centre still remains relatively unchanged in its traffic flow. For example, the one-way system around Middle Street and Ship Street leaves a large portion of the town centre pedestrianised. If you struggle with multi-lane junctions and large roundabouts, you will find driving in busy town environments frustrating, especially with the extra observations needed to cope with cyclists and pedestrians. Knowing how to navigate busy streets well is vital, particularly if you have a delivery position or need to drive for work. By understanding the actions of other road users, being more aware of your surroundings with better mirror work and building a space bubble around your car, you can bring down your road risk. Most urban accidents result from impatience and not leaving space that could have easily been avoided with a little extra attention.
