INTENSIVE 3 DAY ADVANCED COURSE
By far, the most comprehensive police-style advanced driving course available to the general public where you'll be trained in all elements of IPSGA (the SYSTEM of car control) to the highest possible standards. Topics covered will include; detailed cockpit and controls drills (essential vehicle checks and maintenance), advanced acceleration and braking methods, applying the system to all hazards and driving environments, making appropriate progress within legal limitations, advanced overtake techniques, country lanes (bends & limit point assessment), motorway and dual carriageway driving techniques and advanced police-style detailed commentary assisting the driving plan. This course will fully prepare the candidate to go on to take any advanced driving test with the required skills to achieve a test pass as well as changing their driving behaviour and competence for the rest of your life. This intensive course is run over 3 days with lunch provided giving the perfect driving experience. All students are provided with their own personal copy of Roadcraft: The Police Drivers Handbook (RRP £12.99) for study and reference as well as detailed daily progress reports with course completion certificate for evidence of continued professional development.
INTRODUCTORY 2 HOUR SESSION
Interested in advanced driving and want to know where to start or already partly trained? This is where it all starts. My introductory two hour advanced session starts with an assessment of your current driving ability (usually 45 mins to 1 hour) with an hour of introductory instruction where we'll start working on your main areas of improvement. A detailed report will follow your session highlighting the learning covered and an instructional plan will be produced on where more work is required going forward. From this point you can choose a plan to suit you be that hourly, two hourly or the half/full day lessons. Some students use this as a precursor or mock test before they take their advanced test.
FULL DAY (8 HOUR) ADVANCED COURSE
Whether you've had your introductory session, you're partly trained or you're choosing to go straight for the full day advanced session, this is the most comprehensive way to prepare for your advanced test, learn the skills required and can be treated as a CPD day enhancing your skills to a higher level. Training will be tailored to suit each candidate individually as often people undertaking the full day's training have specific areas they want to work on. If you're new to IPSGA and the system we'll start from the beginning introducing the various methods then practicing for consolidation. This is an intensive day with regular breaks taken as well as demonstration drives from myself to assist the learning process.
HALF DAY (4 HOUR)
Don't have the time for a full day? No problem my half day (4 hour) advanced session is a very popular option where we can work on the areas of your driving you want to develop. These sessions appeal to those who have already passed one of the various advanced driving tests available and who want to enhance their skill set or are looking at taking another test of increased difficulty i.e. IAM MASTERS, RoSPA GOLD , emergency response driver training (ERDT) or professional development to name a few. The day will be split into two sessions with a 20 min break in-between. I will offer demonstration drives to assist the learning process and upon completion a detailed report will be issued on progress made.
