So what does Advanced driving actually mean?
Advanced driving is being in the correct position, at the correct speed with the correct gear engaged.
To achieve this we:
- Concentrate on our driving, avoiding electronic and human distractions
- Observe widely, looking well beyond the natural focal point
- Anticipate by acting promptly to deal with the ever-changing environment
- Plan our driving rather than reacting to other road users. We base our planning on a tried and trusted driving plan explained in the IAM RoadSmart course logbook, ‘Advanced Driver’.
We are offering to help you to achieve this driving standard through a series of accompanied drives. One of our trained observers will offer guidance, suggestions and advice and help you put the Advanced Driver techniques into action.
When you have completed the course you will be safer, smoother, more economical and make good progress on the road.
Swift and sure, safe and sound – the advanced driver
