Derbyshire has a wide range of road and road networks that we can provide advanced training on.

During a session we typically look at:

* 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

Course Format:

* Initial introduction
* Initial drive – to allow our tutor to assess level of driving
* Debrief – review on what the tutor has seen, positive feedback and development
* Main training – enjoyable training to help coach and get the best from the driver
* Rest breaks – plenty of time to rest and recap on what has been taught
* Final debrief – review of the day and tips for the future

Around 2-4 days after the course you will receive a fully documented driving report for each driver, outlining what was covered and how the driver improved during the training.
