Aberdeen is one of the locations in Scotland that we provide advanced driving courses for private individuals and also business clients, who require training in cars, vans and HGVs. We have already provided training for a number of companies located in Aberdeen, who are often involved in heavy manufacturing, construction, oil, fishing and similar. The weather in Aberdeen, like with most areas of Scotland can be extreme in the winter, and the nature of the roads around the city and into more rural Aberdeenshire are challenging. These two reasons alone are why we see more companies and private customers in Scotland investing in advanced driver training compared to the rest of the UK.
With our advanced driving courses in Aberdeen, we place a large focus on driving on rural roads. We often head out of Aberdeen on the A96 towards Huntly or sometimes south on the A90 towards Dundee area, or north, again on the A90 towards Peterhead. Where possible to like to head off the main roads onto more challenging rural B roads to ensure a driver gets exposed to as wider range of roads as possible.
Motorway training is not usually done if the course is starting from Aberdeen, although if we do cover motorways we head towards Edinburgh and use the M90 or M8, which is usually only possible on a full day course at least.
