Lancashire is a vast county with a mix of road types. Our courses tend to cover a wide range of these roads. Luckily the M6, M61 and M65 are all quickly accessible from most areas of Lancashire, and so we almost always ensure a portion of our advanced courses cover these roads.

Depending on when a course is taken, we always try and provide training on roads where there are no delays (easier said than done!). We tend to make a point of avoiding using the motorways at rush hour, and avoid towns during school drop offs and the usual commuting hours. As Lancashire is a rural county we ensure training also takes place on busy A roads, where advanced driving techniques can easily be taught, the list of A roads in the county is vast, but we often provide training on the A583, A585 and A666.

We also ensure part of the training takes place on rural B roads like A roads these are great roads to really get to grips with improved car control and observation. Depending on your location we will sometimes venture out of Lancashire and head towards Yorkshire, or down in to Cheshire.

Course Durations:

3.5hr – Around 30% opt for this course. Benefits of this course is that it’s the cheapest, and is only 3.5hr, disadvantages is that for some drivers it’s too short. Ideal mainly for companies training 4 or more drivers.

2 x 3.5hr – This is advantageous for customers that can’t drive for 7hrs and need the split to reflect. Often a driver gets homework on this session, so they can practice what has been taught on session 1, to help them with session 2. Older drivers often opt for this course.

7hr full day – Although it is hard work for some, a full day is cheaper than 2 x 3.5hr. It’s good for those who are time-poor. Maybe your company has asked you do this course, or maybe you feel a 7hr will work better for you. Talk with us if you are unsure.

We understand not all drivers want a half, full or 2 half days. Some need or want longer. That is why we offer 3,4 and 5 x 3.5h sessions. These courses are often run over a few weeks, and are mostly designed for drivers who have significant issues, such as a driving phobia, or need confidence training after a serious road traffic collision.
