Advanced & Defensive Driving Courses Oxford
Oxford is a popular location for our advanced driving courses. We have a number of tutors based within a 20-mile radius of the city.
Our bespoke training is what segregates us from other training organisations. The idea of a tick box, one size fits all driving course fills us with dread. They’re boring and rarely get the best from a driver. So when we talk about “bespoke training”, what do we mean? We look at training the same way we look at our customers; each one is unique. Every driver is different with regards to driving, based on both a mix of internal and external factors. Internal factors are things including personality type, attitudes, concentration etc. External factors are things such as years of driving experience, mileage covered, positive and negative experiences etc.
We provide bespoke advanced/defensive driver training to companies and private individuals, using our national network of DVSA registered advanced driving instructors.
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
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.
Our advanced driving courses, which start from Oxford cover rural, urban and motorway driving.
Urban driving covers training in the centre of Oxford, and places emphasis on traffic and space management, observing cyclists and pedestrians too, along with lower speed limit awareness (esp. in the growing number of 20mph limit areas)
Rural road training places a focus on car control among other things. We head out of Oxford to locations like Banbury, through routes that can include driving through Kidlington and other rural locations. Southwards we often head towards Abingdon, and sometimes down towards Newbury depending on if’s a full or half-day.
We tend to use a wide range of roads including the busy A34, the A423, and A44, plus a range of B and sometimes unclassified roads.
Motorway training is almost always done on the M40 as it is a convenient distance from Oxford.
Our courses do alter in their delivery, although we have a number of courses based on time, these are outlined below:
3.5hr session, 7hr session, 2 x 3.5hr sessions, 3 x 3.5hr sessions, 4 x 3.5r sessions, 5 x 3.5hr sessions
All our courses are bespoke to the needs of the driver, whether that’s a session for one or 100+. As a result we can provide a course, which best fit’s with your needs. Please call us or use the contact form upper right for more information.
