Advanced & Defensive Driving Courses Swansea
Wales is a great location for advanced driving courses, mainly for the diverse and often very challenging roads in the country. In Swansea, we have already helped a number of private customers and companies who wish to lower the road risk of their drivers.
We cover Swansea + 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.
For all our bespoke driving courses in Swansea, we provide training on a range of roads and different areas, which can include:
Motorway training – Swansea is a large city situated at the coast in South Wales and is served by the M4, which runs from London, joining the A48 and the A40 that links into the rest of Wales. Motorway travel is considered one of the safest routes to drive, but with the higher speeds and added lanes, many people are not confident using them. Using the A43 at Port Tennant, for example, we can create a route that will help any motorist become a better motorway driver. The speed of entry and exit at motorway junction slip roads causes the most worry, but understanding how to manage the speed at these points can stop possible incidents. As well as joining a motorway, advanced driving techniques can help with lane changes, moving past high-sided lorries and vans, improving observation and generally making them safer drivers.
Rural Roads – Swansea has many miles of rural and coastal roads, which can be extremely hazardous for drivers new to the area and new drivers who may have recently passed their driving test. The A4067 Mumbles Road has seen many tragic accidents involving young drivers, and The B2925 heading toward Gowerton is very similar, so it is vital that drivers understand and respect the regulations of rural driving. As rural roads have minimal speed cameras, the temptation to speed in quiet country areas is very high; add to this very few warning signs and hardly any street lighting, and accident rates are significantly elevated. Learning how to use driving techniques such as the ‘Limit Point’ for winding roads and knowing how to position yourself on the road for the best forward observations can be instrumental for safe rural driving. There are extra issues to take into account when driving rurally, such as seasonal changes that can bring floods, ice or tree falls, the possibility of animals on the road, and horse riders and cyclists around every corner. Safe rural driving is essential and can lower the risk of accidents greatly.
Urban Training – Swansea is an extremely busy city and has many urban roads that can be frustrating to travel, especially during rush hour traffic, and it is mainly at these times when the probability of accidents will soar. Impatience is one of the many reasons for accidents in urban areas. These issues can be remedied quite easily with some extra advanced driver techniques. Urban driving has a high accident rate, and although the accidents are not as severe as motorway or rural accidents due to lower speeds, they can involve pedestrians, cyclists and motorbikes as well as other vehicles. Hence, a good awareness of your surroundings is vital when travelling across busy urban environments. The A4118 leading to The Kingsway and St Helens Road are particularly accident prone, and most issues are around roundabouts and traffic light junctions.
Our advanced driving courses are designed for drivers of cars and vans of all ages, experience and abilities.
