Advanced & Defensive Driving Courses Chester
Some time ago, we noticed that in a world where many things can be bespoke to your needs and arranged conveniently online, the driver training industry fell short. 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. 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 one driver in the morning for 3.5 hours 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 Chester + 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:
For all our bespoke driving courses in Chester, we provide training on a range of roads and different areas, which can include:
Motorway training – The M56 and the M53 are within a few miles from the city of Chester and are reached via the A41 to the north of the city. These routes are ideal for taking further advanced driver training to gain more confidence when using motorways. No two drivers are the same when it comes to driving issues, and as all our courses are tailored to the individual driver, we can take you over particularly worrisome routes. Some of the most common reasons for lack of confidence on the motorways are the speed of travel, the number of other vehicles using the motorway simultaneously, especially rush hours and the worry of missing an exit if you find yourself boxed in by large lorries and vans. With a few simple driving systems, we can ensure that your motorway journies are less stressful than they need to be, and in turn, you will gain the freedom to travel out of your local area with more faith in your driving skills.
Rural Roads – Chester is surrounded by open countryside and has seen many accidents along these routes. With less street lighting and few warning signs, rural roads are more deadly than any other road type in the UK. Rural driving has a set of challenges unlike any other roads, such as seasonal flooding or tree falls blocking lanes, and during the busy farming times, slow-moving traffic. Another problem, especially on very narrow minor roads, is allowing other vehicles to pass safely and allowing adequate space. If you are more used to town or motorway driving, then rural driving can be worrying, but better forward planning observations and holding back on very narrow, winding roads can really work in your favour.
Urban Training – Chester is a bustling city centre, and the outskirts are served by St Oswald’s Way, St Martins Way and Nicholas Street, which have many traffic light junctions and roundabouts to navigate. During busy rush hours, drivers are far more impatient, especially if there are road works or diversions, so understanding how to anticipate the actions of other road users is a beneficial skill. Many accidents in urban environments are around junctions and roundabouts. By creating a space bubble around your car and ensuring you have clear all-around views of the road ahead and of the drivers following you, you can immensely minimise your road risk.
Remember – We build all our driving courses from scratch, and are built around your specific needs. This applies to both business and private customers, all over the UK.
