North Yorkshire has a wide network of roads to offer a comprehensive driver training session for all drivers. The county, which is the largest in the UK covers a huge 3,341 sq/mi. There is a significant network of roads we can provide advanced driver training for clients. We have already helped private and business clients in North Yorkshire in areas such as Whitby, Scarborough, Harrogate, Skipton and Catterick. With our advanced driving courses we do try and cover as many roads as possible. In North Yorkshire we provide training on the A1 ( M ), sometimes over to the M6 depending on your location and also M62, M1 if we are heading south out of the county. North Yorkshire has many thousands of miles of rural roads, which form a perfect backdrop for our rural road training, these include a range of B roads and also busier roads like the A61, and A59).

Rural roads are dangerous, challenging and so we always like to ensure a large portion of a course is devoted to these roads (unless you are doing a specialist course such as motorway driver training). Most of the training will take place in the county, although if you are located in the more northerly areas, such as Whitby or Northallerton, we often head up towards Middlesborough and Sunderland. If you are in the south, we will often head towards Leeds and Bradford area. Each course is bespoke to you and/or your drivers, and so the specific route and types of roads will vary slightly from course to course.
