We have over 200 DVSA Fleet Registered tutors across the UK. In Scotland we cover most areas including Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee – along with many other areas near by, such as Kilmarnock, East and West Kilbride, Paisley, Livingston, Dumfermline, Sterling, Perth, Dundee etc…
We don’t cover the Highlands. We go far north as Aberdeen unless there is a large number of driver to train.

Our Advanced Driving Courses in Scotland:
Due to the vast expanse of Scotland, and the relatively large area of unpopulated locations, driver training tends to be focused around the more populated towns and cities including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee.
Our driver training in Scotland is very similar to our driver training across all areas of the UK. However, depending on your location it may not always be possible (or required) toundertake advanced driver training on a motorway. Should you require training in more southern areas of Scotland, motorway training can be done on a range of motorways such as the M77 M74, M898, M9 etc…
Should you be located more north, we have the A9, which can provide some great faster road training. However, the vast majority of driver training takes place on a range of roads, including town driving and rural roads.
Rural roads are where most accidents occur, so it makes sense to focus training on these more hazardous roads.
Advantages of training with us:

Tutors are available for a call before and after your course
Driver progress is recorded and detailed on our bespoke driving reports, sent to you on email after the course, so you can see progress and overall risk of a driver
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.
How safe are your company car drivers on Scottish roads?
We have currently provided advanced driver training for a number of companies based in Scotland. As with all our courses, a training session can start from your office, or should you wish, a mutually convenient location for our tutor and driver.
Training can be done on a 1:1 or 2:1 basis. Around 90% of our clients opt for the 2:1 format, due to time and cost savings. The 2:1 format is simply where one driver goes out with one tutor for 3.5 hours in the morning, and another for the same time period in the afternoon.
All our courses are bespoke to the needs of the driver, whether thats a 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.
