Advanced & Defensive Driving Courses Shropshire

Shropshire has its range of challenging roads. Being a rural country it has one of the highest prevalence of rural roads in the country. 

These rural roads, typically B and unclassified roads are where, proportionally, most fatal accidents occur, so it’s wise to ensure that your employees gain essential driver training on these roads, to ensure they are safe, and as an employer you are demonstrating duty of care.

We cover Shropshire + All of the UK – We come to you for the training:

We provide bespoke advanced/defensive driver training to companies and private individuals, using our national network of DVSA registered advanced driving instructors.

Our advanced driving courses based in Shropshire are not just on rural roads. With our courses we cover a range of roads, including the Motorway (The M54 is ideal for this in the county). We also provide training on town and urban driving, such as in and around Shrewsbury, Telford, and other towns in Shropshire.

We are a national company but are based in Shrewsbury. 

Depending on your specific needs, we can develop a course around your own needs. If a driver is having one too many accidents, it makes sense to receive coaching on a range of roads to get to the route of the problem, and assess them on a range of roads. If they are looking at only motorway driving, we can adjust the course to fit. However, around 95% of clients opt for training on a range of roads.

If the training is starting from Shrewsbury we tend to offer training out towards the M54 and Telford area. However, depending on location we can also head off out the county into Powys on the A458 towards Welshpool. 

Training can be on a 2:1 or 1:1 format. A 2:1 format is where one driver goes out for half a day (3.5hrs) and another in the afternoon for the same time period. This is a very popular method of training based on the cost and time savings.

 

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

After the course you will receive a driving report for each driver so you know what was covered and their overall road risk.
