Our advanced driving courses are split into three areas based on road types, all of which are covered in a day:
Urban Driving – We use the centre of York for the urban part. We look at how to deal with vulnerable road users, and how to keep out of bus lanes (which in York this has been a real issue for many drivers!) and how to be aware of the varying speed limits, which often catch people out. Urban driver training is all about being aware of your immediate surroundings and looking forward and planning at all times.
Motorway Driving – In York we have the M1/A1(M) for motorway driving, and so that is where it takes place. We often head north towards Darlington direction or south towards Doncaster. We focus on longer distance planning and observation, and also outline the rules of the motorway, and how to generally remain safe on these roads.
Rural Driving – York has a excellent network of rural roads. We always ensure rural roads are covered due to the high risk nature of them. Many times we often head out towards Bridlington on a range of rural A,B and sometimes unclassified roads. Sometimes we head towards Hull. The exact location does depend on the time of day, and traffic conditions.
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
