What Are Advanced Driving Lessons?
If you hold a full driving licence in the UK, you can take advanced driving lessons to improve your overall driving performance or hone in on specific skills.
Whether you want to refresh your knowledge, boost your confidence or improve your handling skills in adverse weather conditions, there are many reasons you may want to have advanced driving lessons. But how do you know which course is right for you?
Which advanced driving course is right for me?
Below we’ve listed some of the top types of advanced driving courses you can take.
Recently passed your driving test, but don’t feel as road savvy as you’d like? Pass Plus is a short driving course designed to help newly qualified drivers develop their driving skills and become more confident.
Whether you want to pick up some helpful tips for driving at night or in busy urban areas, Pass Plus can help you with all of these and more.
Perfect for recently passed drivers, the course usually takes six hours in total and can be completed with any DVSA approved instructor.
This course is less formal than your practical driving test. Instead of a test at the end, your instructor will simply assess your performance as you’re driving.
Once completed to the required standard, you can apply for your certificate and head out onto the road feeling better prepared for a range of driving conditions and scenarios.
If you want to use the motorway but feel unprepared, a few advanced lessons with a professional driving instructor could be highly beneficial.
If you’ve been away from driving for a while but want to get back behind the wheel, refresher lessons could be a great way to refresh your knowledge and boost your confidence.
