Our specialist private advanced driving courses are designed for individuals that wish take their driving to a higher level with one-to-one training. There are over 45 million licence holders in the UK, each with their own unique driving styles, experiences, skills and sometimes – issues. 

We have a range of advanced and defensive driving courses, bespoke and designed to fit exactly with your needs and requirements. We understand every driver is unique, and so an individual approach is what makes us different.

This understanding is a key element, which separates us from other driver training providers. We listen and understand you and your needs.

Current Specialist Courses Available:

Full or Half Day Advanced/Defensive Course
Duration: 7hrs,3.5hrs, 2 x 3.5hrs or 3 x 3.5hrs

Cost: From £264

Info: This course is designed for people that want to become safer, more skilful drivers. During the session you will learn a range of advanced and defensive driving techniques on a range of roads including rural, town, motorway and dual carriageway.

We will start the course with a relaxed initial drive, where you will be asked to drive in the way you would normally, with no coaching input from the tutor. This allows you to relax and for us to get a feel for what you are like as a driver. After the initial drive we then mark you either Excellent, Very Good, Good, Adequate or Poor in 25 key areas of driving, using one of our bespoke training reports.

We discuss the initial drive and actively encourage feedback before the coaching starts. We will base the coaching on what we see during the initial drive, what you specifically want, and the feel our tutor gets having spent time with you. For example, if you are having issues with observation and forward planning, but maybe are excellent at speed control, more time will be spend on developing your observational skills, than maybe talking about the consequences of excessive speed and so on.

Cost: From £264

InfoThis course is designed for new owners of high performance cars, who realise that the car they are now (or soon to be) driving requires a higher level of driving ability and safety.

Many of our customer taking this course are those who have recently taken delivery of a range of prestige marques including BMW M models, Mercedes AMGs, Porsches, Ferraris and much more. We will start the course with a chat about your car and what especially you would like to focus on. Many drivers taking this course tend to want a session, which makes them safer, with an added focus on being able to handle the additional power, through safer, smoother driving. If the car is new and unfamiliar to you, we can spend some time with you learning the various controls and driver aids fitted. 

This is not a high performance course in the sense that we teach you how to “drive fast” like with other more focused performance driving courses. However, we do focus more on car control and building a safe progressive driving style, with the aim of making a safer, smoother driver. 

On the day the session starts with a relaxed initial drive, like with our other courses, where you will be asked to drive in the way you would normally, with no coaching input from the tutor. This allows you to relax, and for us to get a feel for what you are like as a driver.

After the initial drive we then mark you either Excellent, Very Good, Good, Adequate or Poor in 25 key areas of driving, using one of our bespoke training reports. This is not a test, but we tend to use these results as more of a benchmark to show how you have improved during the day.

We discuss the initial drive and actively encourage feedback before the coaching starts. We will base the coaching on what we see during the initial drive, what you specifically want, and the feel our tutor gets having spent time with you. 

Half or Full Day? A half day is ideal for those who want a shorter session to get up to speed with their new car, whilst a full day is ideal for those wanting a detailed and comprehensive session.

Ideal For: Owners of high performance cars, who want to ensure their driving is up to the standard to enjoy their car in a safe and legal yet enjoyable way. All training takes place in your own car. We can provide training on a Saturday for no additional cost.

Post Course: After the course a full report will be sent via email with the free option of a certificate of completion too. Select your ideal training dates and book your course onlineStart

Full or Half Day Advanced/Defensive Course – For Two Drivers
Duration: 3.5hrs a driver or 1hr 45 min a driver

Cost: £320 + VAT or £220 + VAT for both

Info: This course is the same as the Full or Half Day Advanced/Defensive Course, which is outlined at the start of this page, but is designed to be split between two drivers. It is designed for motorists that want to become safer, more skilful drivers.

During the session you will learn a range of advanced and defensive driving techniques on a range of roads including rural, town, motorway and dual carriageway.

For both drivers we will start the course with a relaxed initial drive, where you will be asked to drive in the way you would normally, with no coaching input from the tutor. This allows you to relax and for us to get a feel for what you are like as a driver. After the initial drive we then mark you either Excellent, Very Good, Good, Adequate or Poor in 25 key areas of driving, using one of our bespoke training reports.

We discuss the initial drive and actively encourage feedback before the coaching starts. We will base the coaching on what we see during the initial drive, what you specifically want, and the feel our tutor gets having spent time with you. For example, if you are having issues with observation and forward planning but maybe are excellent at speed control, more time will be spend on developing your observational skills than maybe talking about the consequences of using excessive speed and so on.

With this two driver course, we can train one driver at a time, or you can simply take it in turns to drive, whilst the other driver sits in the back. All training takes place in your own car or van. We can provide training on a Saturday for no additional cost.

Half or Full Day? The full day allows 3.5hrs a driver, the usual format is a session in the morning with one driver, and then another in the afternoon for the same time. The half day can be done in a morning or afternoon. Around 90% of customers opt for the full day, whilst the half day (which is 1hr 45 min a driver) is ideal for an initial introduction to advanced driving.

Ideal For: People who want to split the cost of the session, and both learn advanced driving techniques in an enjoyable and informative way. People taking this course are often husband and wife, brother and sister, or friends who are wanting to become safer drivers together.

Post Course: After the course a full report will be sent via email with the free option of a certificate of completion too for both drivers.

4 x Half Day Advanced/Defensive Intensive Course
Duration: 4 x 3.5hr sessions

Cost: £580 + VAT

Info: This course is designed for people that want more than a full day training. This course runs over a 4 day period, which do not necessarily need to be back-to-back days. Each session is designed to build upon your progress from the previous session.

You will have the same tutor for the training duration. The format is identical to the half or one day advanced/defensive course outlined on this page. However, much more time is dedicated to introducing advanced techniques, and spending extra time applying them in a range of situations. We mark you in a range of areas at the start and then again on day 4, so you can see how you have improved. The report is also much more detailed than with the full day course, which documents how you improved over the training period.

Ideal For: Drivers who want to significantly improve their driving with an expert, and receive one-to-one tuition over a number of days. This course is popular with those that feel training over several days will be more beneficial to them, than a one day course.

Post Course: You will receive a full and extended driving report and also a certificate of completion, which will document you have undertaken a 4 day intensive driving course with a DVSA (Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency) registered fleet tutor.
