Chester is a popular location for our advanced and defensive driving courses. Our courses are split one of two ways. Either you can opt for a full day course for each driver, or train on driver in the morning for 3.5hrs and another for the same in the afternoon. Around 90% of clients opt for this 2:1 format due to the cost and time savings.
We cover this location + 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.
Each course that starts from Chester, where we only use local advanced driving tutors is typically split to cover the following roads, for maximum benefit to each driver:
Motorways – Motorways although safe, are busy and fast moving. It is essential that you have confidence, forward planning and undivided attention when using these roads.
Our courses are designed to help improve your overall safety on these roads. From Chester we typically use the M53 heading north and then pick up the M56 towards Manchester. We find this route provides a great learning backdrop for motorway training. We do sometimes vary this depending on your location in Chester.
Rural Roads – Rural roads are where, sadly a vast proportion of fatal collisions occur. The high speeds, combined with the challenging nature of these roads are a key reason why such incidents take place. Our courses place specific emphasis on rural roads, where we focus on car control, forward planning, how to deal with varying road surfaces, and much more. From Chester we have a wide range of rural roads.
Often we head south on roads such as the B5130, which is a challenging road, driving tough various villages such as Aldford, Churton and Farndon. Depending on your location in Chester we often head west towards Wales on the B5125 past Mold, towards Ruthin before making a loop back and heading west for motorway training.
Urban roads – Many find urban driving frustrating. With road works, dense traffic, varying speed limits and cyclists, attention can easily be lost. Our training for safe urban driving takes place in the centre of Chester, circling the city, along roads such as St Martins Way, Union Street, Hoole Way and many more. Depending on the traffic we may head out of the centre for this training element towards Great Boughton, Upton, or similar.
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
