As we approach the winter months, I am currently offering a mini-course to help support the development of skills for driving in the autumn/winter. Although it has been designed for relatively new drivers (who’ve passed their test in the last couple of years but didn’t take the Pass Plus course or didn’t experience driving in autumn/winter when learning to drive), it could be beneficial to anyone who would like to develop their driving skills or improve their confidence in driving at this time of year.
The mini-course is a two session event, focusing on the following:-
Session One (2 hours) – Daytime drive. This can form an assessment drive, to identify ways to improve your driving and covers a discussion about driving in various autumn and winter driving conditions (e.g. rain, wind, snow, ice, sleet, fog, winter sunshine).
Session Two (1 hour) – Driving session in the dark, on a range of roads (lit and unlit) covering the use of main beam lights, brake lights and fog lights.
The route chosen for the driving sessions will depend on your location and the subjects of autumn/winter driving weather conditions will be largely through discussion.
The cost of course is £70 (for the three hours over two sessions) with any additional sessions charged @ £25 per hour.
If there are other aspects of driving where you’d like to improve your driving skills or you would simply like to build up more confidence (e.g parking or dealing with crossroads or roundabouts), you could consider bespoke refresher sessions, which would be tailored to your specific needs.
