Training locations in Edinburgh:
Our courses cover the main elements of driver training and are conducted on three main road types:
Urban roads – Rural roads – Motorways
Urban roads – In Edinburgh we tend to focus the training in the city centre to help a driver develop defensive driving skills and to fully appreciate hazards like cyclists, pedestrians and of course the trams! We also provide urban training in semi-urban areas of the city such as Morningside, Sighthill Corstorphine and similar.
Rural roads – Scotland has some very cold winters, making rural roads particularly hazardous. We teach drivers defensive techniques such as the limit point, advanced car control and dealing with rural road surfaces in all weather.
With our rural road training element we head our of Edinburgh, and drive on outwards towards Dunbar towards the east, Hawick to the south, Livingston to the east or Dunfermline to the north – this is totally flexible depending on location, and duration of the course. Often the types of roads we provide training on depends on the driver in question. Our courses are designed around the needs of the driver.
Motorways – Training here takes place on M8, M9 or M90. With motorway driving we focus on learning to keep a safe distance from other vehicles, speed awareness, and how to safely join and exit motorways, among other things.
