What is Advanced Driving and Riding?

Advanced driving and riding is essentially about handling your vehicle safely. Our courses will show how you can quickly learn to improve your powers of anticipation, concentration and observation. You will develop skills that will enable you to plan where to place your vehicle to help ensure that, whatever the circumstances, you will be in the correct position on the road, travelling at the right speed for the conditions, with the correct gear selected and you will always be able to stop safely on your own side of the road within the distance you can see to be clear. Our tutors are friendly and approachable and will help to make sure that you'll enjoy training with us!
