Advanced Driver Training in Nottingham overs a range of roads and road types:

Urban – We use the centre of Nottingham for urban training, or if the centre is too busy we look at similar areas just out the centre like Stapleford, Carlton and similar. With urban driver training we look at space management in traffic, and how to safely deal with pedestrians and cyclists too. Forward planning of other road users is also critical too.

Rural – Rural roads around Nottingham allow us to provide first-rate training to all drivers. We often head out towards Derby or up towards Mansfield or across to Newark on a range of A, B and sometimes unclassified roads, where we look at a range of advanced driving techniques. 

Motorway – Most of the motorway training takes place on the M1 due to its close location to Nottingham. Most of our motorway training covers forward planning, speed awareness, keeping a safe gap and how to safely enter and exit motorways.


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.

3.5hr session
7hr session
2 x 3.5hr sessions

All our driving courses are conducted by Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) fleet registered ADIs (Approved Driving Instructors). All our tutors have a passion for road safety and teaching the latest driving techniques to drivers of all abilities in an easy to learn informative and enjoyable way.

After the training, you will receive a full driving report, which will outline the driving standard both before and after the training. We measure a driver in 25 key areas and score them either excellent, very good, good, adequate or poor. We do this at the start and the end, so you can see the improvement and in what areas. There will also be notes from the tutor too. 

This report will be proof the driver has received professional driver training from a DVSA registered advanced driving instructor. The tutors DVSA registration number will be recorded on this report.
