Lancaster is an ideal location for advanced and defensive driver training due to its location with motorways and rural roads at close hand. Our courses cover training on a range of roads including:
Motorways – The M6 runs close to Lancaster and so we always ensure a part of an advanced driving course takes place on the M6. We usually join the M6 south of Lancaster from the A6 and head north. This is of course dependant on your location.
Rural Roads – From Lancaster we sometimes head south on the A588 though various villages like Conder Green and Cockerham, before moving onto more challenging rural roads like the B5272.
We focus on car control, observation and anticipation among other things with our rural road training.
Urban Roads – Cyclists, bus lanes, dense traffic and pedestrians are just a few hazards which you need to be aware of when driving in an urban environment.
We teach delegates how to deal best with driving a car or van in an urban environment.
In the centre of Lancaster we cover a range of roads including King Street, Church Street, Penny Street and many more areas. If the centre of Lancaster is too busy, we head to more out of town areas like Scotforth, and Skerton.
