What you can expect from our courses.

During the course of our sessions we take our members out driving to show and explain a variation of advanced driving skills and how to implement them into every-day driving. We offer advice and give unique personalised feedback to every individual based on their driving, to help improve both their driving technique and their confidence behind the wheel.

Things you can expect to gain include:

  • Improved skills and knowledge
  • DVSA accredited
  • Possible cheaper insurance
  • Boost your confidence
  • Greater awareness of other road users
  • Increased anticipation of hazards
  • Opportunities to make better progress in your journey
