Advanced & Defensive Driving Courses Worcester
Worcester is a popular location for our advanced driving courses. We have been providing courses in the area since 2003, and have over 40 tutors within a 50 mile radius of the city.We provide training for both business and private customers.
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 are split into three key training areas:
Motorway driving – Due to Worcester’s location we offer motorway training as part of an advanced driving course. We use the M5, and head either north or south. North will take us down sometimes as far as Gloucester, or as far north as south Birmingham.
The motorway network in and around Birmingham is very busy, so this often makes for a great training environment, where observation and planning are taught in an interesting and easy to learn way.
Rural driving – Worcestershire has a vast network of rural roads. Rural roads are where many accident occur, so it makes sense to ensure part of our courses take place on these roads.
In Worcester we often head out towards Herefordshire on a range of challenging roads. Towards Herefordshire we use the busy A44 or sometimes we head off on more rural routes on B and sometimes unclassified roads.
Depending on your location we can also head east towards Stratford-Upon-Avon on the A46. A southern route of sometimes preferred depending on traffic, heading down to Tewkesbury, as then we can tie up motorway training on the M50 – although this is a fairly quiet motorway, and so may not be suitable for all drivers.
Urban driving – The urban driving element takes place in the centre of Worcester. We often use the A449 into the centre, or A44. If the centre of Worcester is too busy we use more out of town areas for urban training like Red Hill or Henwick. This all depends on your location.
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
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.
