Course Content:

Motorways – In Tyneside there are a range of motorways is limited, so most motorway training takes place on the A194(M) and A1(M).

Depending on our location in Tyneside we can head as far south as Durham on the A1(M) or as far north as Morpeth. Motorways are one of the safest roads, but when accidents occur, there is a greater chance they involve serious injury.

Our courses always build in a section for motorways, to ensure you get the latest tips on how to drive safely on these roads.

Urban – Depending on your location in Tyneside we tend to head into the centre of the closest urban area. For example, with Newcastle, we try and offer urban training in the centre. However, if this is not possible we tend to focus on “just out of the centre” locations like Dunston, or Jesmond. With urban driving we focus on speed limit awareness, and how to deal with cyclists and pedestrians, along with advanced traffic management.

Rural – Heading out of Tyneside we often head towards Hexham on a range of A and B roads. There are a number of routes, which are specifically challenging and provide a great learning environment for all drivers.

With rural driving, we focus on forward planning, car control and how to deal with the unique nature of rural roads, which can be very challenging. We sometimes head north toward Morpeth, or south towards Darlington. The route to Darlington has some of the most challenging roads in the North East, so where possible we use this route.
