Advanced, Defensive & Confidence Driving Courses Worcester
Worcester is a popular location for our driving courses. We have been providing courses in the area since 2003 and have many tutors within a 50-mile radius of the city. We provide training for both business and private customers. All our driving courses are conducted by Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) fleet-registered ADIs (Approved Driving Instructors). All our tutors have a passion for road safety and teach the latest driving techniques to drivers of all abilities in an easy-to-learn informative, and enjoyable way.
We provide bespoke advanced/defensive driver training to companies and private individuals using our national network of instructors.
For all our bespoke driving courses in Worcester, we provide training on a range of roads and different areas, which can include:
Motorway training – The busy M5 serves Worcester to the east of the city and is the main route from Devon into West Bromwich. Motorway driving, statistically, is one of the safer ways to travel, but with the extra speed and added lanes, many drivers are worried about using them and often avoid them at all costs. With a small amount of additional driver training, you can learn to be much more confident and safer when using fast motorway routes. Understanding speed is vital when entering and exiting motorway junctions, and being in the correct lane for your exit is essential. Advanced driver techniques are taught so that you scan the road much further ahead and have significant indications to show other drivers of your intentions to change lanes. Many drivers have taken motorway training as they may be young drivers with their first motorway journeys or nervous drivers who now have to use motorways for family or work purposes. Whatever your worry about motorway driving, we can help, and you will find that it will also improve your overall driving.
Rural Roads – Worcester is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, and there are many miles of rural roads to navigate, which can be hazardous if you are unfamiliar with the area. The B4204 towards Martley and the B4636, Plough Road towards Haddington, has seen many rural accidents that may have been avoided with better rural driving skills. Country roads will have seasonal changes, such as flooding. ice or possible tree falls, that can block a lane so that diversions may be in place, and you need to understand how to follow directions to get to your destination in such areas. Rural driving also requires great patience and speed awareness as there are very few speed cameras in these quiet areas, and the temptation to speed is very high. Unfortunately, the younger drivers come to most harm, closely followed by drivers unfamiliar with the area, or those driving too fast. It is vital to understand that there may be horse riders, cyclists or loose animals on the road around farming communities. Holding back on winding roads allows oncoming vehicles to pass and take care in village areas as there will be extra pedestrians, ramblers, or dog walkers to be aware of.
Urban Training – The city of Worcester is a popular and busy city with many roads leading to and from the centre, such as the A44 and the A38, and these routes have seen many accidents that should have been avoided with better driving skills and awareness. Although urban accidents tend to be less severe due to lower speeds, they can be very upsetting and can lead to road closures and costly insurance claims. Understanding your surrounding is vital for busy urban routes as many drivers are impatient, especially during rush hour, and they may not always make it clear of their intentions; this is when it is valuable to learn about how to anticipate the actions of other road users, including pedestrians, motorbikers and cyclists. Urban driving requires calm patience and great mirror work, and good indications. If you are considering a delivery position or are finding urban driving stressful, then taking some advanced driver training will be very beneficial and can help to prevent many urban accidents from happening.
