For all our bespoke driving courses in Hertfordshire, we provide training on a range of roads and different areas, which can include:
Motorway training – There are many motorways across Hertfordshire, especially the M1 from London and the M25 north orbital. As Hertfordshire is very close to London, there are thousands of commuters daily, and driving confidently and calmly on motorways is essential. The A1 motorway running north to the south of Hertfordshire is an ideal place to take motorway training, and we can create a course that will take in many motorway routes. Although motorways are the safest route of travel statistically, the sheer amount of traffic can be daunting. Quite often, especially during rush hours, it can be slow-moving, which can be very frustrating. It is not always speed that can cause accidents on a motorway. It can be a lack of awareness, boredom or time-poor drivers trying to rush through lane traffic. Knowing when to move lanes for your chosen exit is essential when caught up in traffic queues, as you can quite easily miss your junction if other drivers are boxing you in.
Rural Roads – The further out from London, the more rural roads will be found. Between Luton and Knebworth, you will find routes that, although quaint, can be pretty treacherous in certain conditions, such as the Kimpton Road and the B656 towards Welwyn. It is a fact that most accidents in rural settings are with young drivers and those not local to the area, so it is vital that you know how to navigate rural roads. Some are often single-track and within a farming community. Rural roads have much less lighting unless you enter a village and hardly any speed signs. By learning how to read road furniture – lines and signs – you will be much better aware and more able to anticipate other possible road users and navigate such roads more confidently.
Urban Training – Larger towns throughout Hertfordshire are full of busy and often confusing urban routes. From re-routing traffic from the town centres to new retail parks, there are many new areas to navigate. If you are unfamiliar with driving in urban environments, then you may find rush hour traffic, the number of pedestrians and cyclists you need to be aware of, as well as trying to avoid busses and lorries, very frustrating, and this can knock confidence. The A411 ring road in Watford can be hectic, much like the other inner city ring roads throughout Hertfordshire, and we can create a course that will help with many urban driving issues. Understanding how better forward planning and awareness when town driving is a skill that can be taught very easily and can improve your overall driving abilities significantly.
Bespoke Training Around You:
Our bespoke training is what separates us from other training providers. The thought of a rigid tick box, one size fits all driving course fills us with dread. They’re uninspiring, boring and rarely get the most from a driver. So when we talk about “bespoke training”, what do we actually mean?
We look at training the same way we look at our customers, whether business or private; each one is unique. Every driver is different with regard to driving, based on both internal and external elements. Internal elements are things such as personality type, attitudes, and concentration. External elements are things such as years of driving experience, mileage covered, positive and negative experiences etc.
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.
