Learner Course

A fully structured driving course covering everything from the controls of the car to driving on all road types including Dual carriageways. You will master basic car control which will enable you to drive on public roads safely following the DSA approved syllabus. You will also be guided through various manoeuvres such as turn in the road, reversing around corners and parking. As you progress you will then learn how to negotiate road hazards and blend in with other road users maintaining good progress whilst also effectively looking out for danger and potential hazards. By the time you are ready for test you will be assessed with a mock test conducted just like the real thing to ensure you are competent.

Supervising a Learner Driver

A short course designed for drivers who intend to supervise a learner driver. Supervising a learner can be fun and rewarding, but it can also be stressful for both the learner and the supervisor. It’s important that learners are given the right information and guidance, in the right atmosphere whilst driving on routes that are suitable for their level of ability. Failing that, the extra practice can be negative and destroy confidence and even hinder further progress. Does the supervising driver know what will be expected of a candidate presented for test? How it’s marked? Are the supervisors driving skills up to date and safe? Will you be teaching rules and regulations incorrectly? The course would involve an assessment of the supervising drivers driving and guidance can be given in any areas that require it, ensuring the supervisor has a clear understanding as to what driving style is acceptable. Throughout the session, Highway Code knowledge can be brought up to date to ensure the right information is being passed on to the learner. The length of the course can vary depending on how much you want to do, at least two hours is recommended.

Refresher Course

Aimed at current full licence holders, a refresher course is intended for drivers who may not have driven for some time, or may want to update skills and knowledge. This will entail an informal chat about what your requirements are, and a short relaxed driving assessment to see what your driving is like. A plan of coaching can then be formulated to suit your specific needs and help you reach your own personal goal of what you want to achieve. You can cover as much or as little as you like, some people for example just want to look at motorways or help with understanding certain complex junctions. Pass Plus After passing a driving test, if you are aged below 25 you are more likely to be involved in a road traffic collision than other drivers who are older who may have more experience. Because of this, some insurance companies will give you a discount on your insurance, if you are prepared to further your knowledge and gain more experience in new environments on a pass plus course. There is no test involved, but you will be trained and then assessed before a final report is completed. Upon successful completion of the course, the DSA will present you with a certificate which may entitle you to car insurance discounts, also not forgetting to mention that you should also be a safer and better driver as a result of completing the course. Advanced Driving Course

Advanced driving courses can be tailored to suit the individual depending on the final goal you wish to achieve. I am certified and qualified at the top level with a Grade A pass for the DSA Cardington Advanced Special Test and also a Gold Award for the ROSPA Advanced Test and IAM Test. Driving styles and procedures differ between such tests and you can decide which would suit you best. Defensive Driving Course A course for non occupational drivers who would like to develop their driving style to one of which is safe, and use advanced driving techniques to help avoid being involved in potentially hazardous situations posed by other drivers. This course can also help drivers who have lost confidence in their driving after being  involved in a collision UK Familiarisation Course New residents to the UK already possessing a full licence can benefit from a UK familiarisation course. Such courses are designed to help drivers adjust to driving in the UK. If required, guidance can be given to pass the relevant tests to convert to a full UK driving licence.

Fleet Driving Development Courses

A range of courses designed for company vehicle drivers to reduce the high risks they face whilst driving as part of their work. A fifth of all road traffic consists of vehicles used for work purposes, yet up to a third of all collisions involve one of those vehicles. Driving as part of your job has increased risks which can be managed and reduced. Undertaking a course can help reduce the likelihood of such accidents that would usually result in lost man hours or use of vehicle. Not only that, employers are now required by law to provide adequate driver training for any employee who drives a vehicle on a road as part of their job description, whether you provide the vehicle or they use their own. Benefits include reduced fuel consumption, enhanced vehicle control, correct road procedure, defensive driving techniques and advanced hazard awareness and planning. As an employer providing company vehicles you may even want a potential employees driving assessed before you let them loose on the roads advertising your company. Your vehicles being seen driven badly certainly won’t attract any new business! Basic Assessment Your employee or potential employee will be assessed over the period of about 90 minutes whilst driving a mixture of road types to establish their general standard of driving. A written report will help you make an informed decision as to whether the driver is of the standard required or whether any further training would be necessary.

Half Day (3.5 hrs)

A half day course would be suitable for one driver and would begin with a presentation, eyesight, licence and vehicle checks, followed by an assessment of driving ability with a DSA fully qualified instructor. The instructor would then target any areas that might need attention and give the relevant coaching required. There would then be a final driving assessment for recording the driver’s improvement. Following the course a written report would be provided.

Full Day (6 hrs for 1 or 2 drivers)

A one day course would follow the same format as a half day course but would allow more time for the participant to absorb the information and practice new driving techniques. A full day also allows time for more than one driver to attend. The benefits of two drivers being present are the learning benefits gained by each driver observing the other. This also helps to keep costs down to a minimum.
