Yes. Our Refresher Course is of similar duration to our advanced course but, without having the pressure of a test to contend with, most “refreshers” will soon gain a newfound confidence and enthusiasm. If you have been unable to take to the roads for some time since you passed your basic driving test or have almost developed a phobia about certain aspects of the driving process, such as reverse parking or motorway driving, this course would be tailored to your particular needs and will specifically address your own shortcomings. Even if this only means being able to reverse into the parking bays at Tesco!
There are many forms of Advanced Driving courses available, and they all promote safe driving and will enhance your driving skills. The DIAmond Advanced Driving Test closely follows the familiar format of the DSA driving test, although drivers will obviously be expected to show a higher degree of competence including demonstrable skill in all the manoeuvres. The test will take over an hour, encompassing most types of road conditions, with a maximum of 6 minor faults being allowed and successful candidates will receive a detailed synopsis of their driving and exclusive and immediate acceptance to the prestigious DIAmond Advanced Motorists Master Driver Club. They also receive a handcrafted certificate and a bimonthly “Driving” magazine as well as various discounts and benefits. Our course includes five 2-hour lessons and the cost of the advanced test.
Our A2Z PassPlus course consists of six specially designed training sessions to follow on from a successful practical driving test. The lessons will include driving both in and out of town, on dual carriageways and motorways, in all weathers and at night. The extra experience and positive driving skills from Pass Plus would otherwise take a long time to acquire.
Pass Plus is backed by the Government, the Driving Standards Agency and many major UK insurers. It is designed to make newly qualified drivers become better drivers and gives a number of other benefits, such as additional experience gained in a controlled environment, such as motorway driving, and cheaper motor insurance. You can take Pass Plus at any time, although it would be more useful to new drivers up to a year after passing their practical driving test. There is no further test to take. When your instructor is satisfied with your performance you receive a certificate from the Driving Standards Agency which can be used to significantly reduce the insurance premium you or your parents pay for you to drive a car.
