What kind of advanced driving courses are there?
We offer refresher courses and the Pass Plus qualification.
Refresher courses are a minimum of two hours, although we recommend around five to get the most out of them. As mentioned, these can be tailored to any area in which you’d like to improve. There’s no qualification, but we guarantee that you’ll be more confident and capable as a result.
Pass Plus is Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA)-recognised course which enhances your driving ability. It’s a six-hour session, after which you’ll receive a certificate. You’ll also be a more courteous, safer driver, with better road awareness and vehicle control. This qualification is most popular among newly qualified drivers.
What can I learn on an advanced driving course?
You can choose the areas and skills you’d like to concentrate on. But ultimately, any advanced course for existing licence holders will aim to make you a safer, more competent driver.
Skills you can learn include, but are not limited to:
● Night-time driving ● Driving in all weather ● Motorway driving ● Dual carriageways ● Speed awareness ● Switching from manual to automatic (or vice versa)
Will taking a refresher course reduce my car insurance?
Taking a refresher course won’t qualify you for a car insurance discount. But although these courses aren’t recognised by car insurance providers, you might reduce your premiums indirectly by being a safer driver. The less likely you are to be involved in an accident, the cheaper your car insurance will get over time. This is because insurers offer better-priced insurance to motorists with a good, incident-free driving record.
