Advanced & Defensive Driving Courses Leeds
We have many advanced driving tutors in and around the city of Leeds. Having local tutors means we know the most suitable roads to provide advanced and defensive driving courses on. We currently help a large number of companies and private customers in and around Leeds with advanced driver training.
We have a range of course designed to help drivers of all ages, experience and budgets:
1 x 3.5hr course – Designed for companies training drivers back to back, or if a private client wants a short session, with a view to a longer course, or just to have a taster to our courses
2 x 3.5hr sessions -If you don’t want a 7hr session but more than a 3.5hr session, this course is great – lots of learning can take place on these courses, which are suited to drivers who need time to reflect after a course. Also ideal if a driver gets tired quickly or who simply don’t want a 7hr session
1 x 7hr session – This is an intensive session, and great for those that want to get a course completed in one day. Ideal if you are pushed for time.
3,4 or 5 x 3.5hr sessions – These courses are for those, mostly private customers that want a more in-depth, longer term training plan.
Benefits of our courses:
* Reduced insurance
* Lower fuel costs
* Improved company reputation
* Morale boost for drivers
* Demonstrate your Duty of Care
Our advanced and defensive courses cover the following roads:
Motorways – From Leeds we provide training on motorways including the M621, M1, M62. This is ideal as we have a wide choice to choose from, depending on your location in Leeds. Some of the motorways around Leeds can get highly congested and so we always try and work around this to ensure you are not sat at a standstill!
Rural Roads – Quite often we head north from Leeds towards Weatherby, Otley or similar. We have a range of twisting, turning rural roads to really provide essential training for clients. Challenging roads really help us provide the highest level of driver training, as we can introduce various advanced driving techniques to assist drivers and help improve their driving, regardless of the level they are currently at.
Most drivers benefit from rural road training as it helps them develop their powers of observation. Instead of just looking, we help drivers look, observe and plan. There is often so many hazards on rural roads, and so they provide a great learning environment for all drivers.
Urban Driving – Leeds is a very busy city, with many hazards, including cyclists, dense traffic, various lanes and pedestrians to name just four! We help drivers gain a better insight on how to become safer urban drivers. We cover a range of roads in Leeds centre including Crown Point Road, New York Road, York Road and many more. If the city centre is too congested we sometimes head out of town to areas like Headingley, Harehills, Middleton and similar.
During a session we typically look at:
* Forward planning and observation
* Speed awareness
* Developing a positive attitude towards safer driving
* How to become a safer driver on all roads
* Car or van control (gears, steering, foot controls, signals)
* Rules of the road
* Dealing with road rage
* Reversing and manoeuvres
* Dealing with adverse weather
* Town and urban defensive driving
* Driving in heavy traffic and allowing adequate space
* Skid control theory and learning what causes skids
* Eco-safe driving (effective use of speed, gears, planning)
* Anticipation – Learning to see and not just look
* Understanding other road users and their intentions
