What is advanced driving?

Advanced Driving brings a new enjoyment to driving. It is about reaching a standard of driving that is above that of the average motorist, demonstrating car control skills, smoothness, observation, anticipation and planning that leave a greater margin of safety between yourself and other road users.

One of our favourite definitions is "being in the correct gear at the correct speed in the correct place, at all times" Sounds easy, but it takes practice and coaching to achieve.

And it is about having the ability to recognise and to implement opportunities to make progress safely.


A knowledge of the Highway Code is essential and the ability to implement the rules of the road consistently well, under all road conditions, in all weathers and in all stages of light and dark.
