For all our bespoke driving courses in Hereford, we provide training on a range of roads and different areas, which can include:

Motorway training – The closest motorways to Hereford are the M50 via the A49 at Ross on Wye, which leads to the M5 at Strensham, and by using these routes, you can venture into the rest of the UK using faster roads. During advanced driver training, we will use such routes to help drivers become more confident when using motorways to travel. Motorway travel is the safest way to travel according to accident statistics, but due to the higher speeds, when they do happen, they can be severe, so it is vital that you are completely aware of your surroundings and able to anticipate the actions of other drivers.

Rural Roads – Hereford is set in a very rural area, with many miles of open countryside roads and their own driving challenges. For example, the B4399 towards Fiddlers Green and the A4103 Roman Road towards Kenchester are littered with accident sites, and some have been fatal. Rural driving needs excellent observations and the ability to read the road furniture (lines and signs), as not all rural roads are fully signed and will always have less streetlighting than urban areas. When taking advanced driver training, we will teach driving systems such as the ‘limit point’ for navigating winding roads safely and how to reverse on narrow lanes to let other drivers pass, plus much more. 

Urban Training – Much of Hereford town centre is pedestrianised, but the roads leading in and around are particularly prone to accidents, such as the A438 and Victoria Street, and many may have been avoided with some simple observations and more patience. Driving in busy urban settings can be frustrating, especially during rush hours when traffic is high and everyone is trying to reach their destinations on time. Slow-moving traffic often sees minor accidents where drivers are not paying attention to their entire surroundings, which tend to happen near junctions and roundabouts. Being speed aware, improved mirror work and indicating better and at the right time can make a world of difference to safer urban driving. 


Remember – All of our on-road driving courses are bespoke to your own needs. This relates to both business and private customers

* Understanding other road users and their intentions


How we score a driver:

We score a driver in over 20 areas of driving both before and after a course, from Excellent to Poor, so you can see the areas of improvement, in what areas, along with handwritten notes from the tutor. Each driver taking the training will also be graded an overall road risk from low to high.
