Advanced Driving Lessons
Enhanced Driving Skills are a range of courses that you can and possibly should take after you have passed your initial London driving test. Many car insurance companies will look favourably if you have completed these and will offer you further car insurance discounts and better car insurance deals if you have passed these additional courses. Some local London Boroughs will also provide young newly passed learner drivers financial help and discounts on such courses.
Advanced Driving Courses in London
Pass Plus is a must for all newly qualified drivers. This course generally takes a minimum of 6 hours to complete and covers a wide range of situations and conditions. These have been identified as high accident areas for new drivers.
The Pass Plus driving course covers:
- Driving on motorways and dual carriageways,
- Driving at night,
- Driving in town,
- Driving on rural roads,
- and driving in different types of weather conditions.
Motorway driving course is additionally a much needed course even though the Pass Plus course covers this particular part of driving. Motorway driving is an extremely high risk area for drivers particularly when you consider that having an accident at high speeds is more likely to cause a fatality.
London Driving School and it’s instructors recommend you take a minimum of 2 x 1 hour lessons with an approved driving instructor if you have not driven on a motorway before and are particularly nervous about doing so.
Is driving a part of your daily working life?
Does your daily life involve you driving? Do you drive as part of your work? If the answer is yes then you should consider taking an advanced driving course. Most experienced drivers dismiis taking further driving lessons because there is a air of arrogance about their own driving skills. However this leads to complacency and bad driving habits such as only keeping one hand on the steering wheel, not checking all your mirrors prior to overtaking, turning or stopping.
Here at London Driving School we recommend you take refresher lessons every 5 years and particularly if there has been a long time gap between when you have last driven. Or perhaps you have never driven in London, the UK or even on this side of the road.
What many experienced and career drivers fail to appreciate is that by taking these advanced driving courses you will not only be a better driver. But you will also see a reduction in your car insurance premiums. Quite often the saving will outweigh the cost of the courses even in the first year.
