Advanced Driving courses – what to expect and how it can benefit you

Driving a car is fun, but for the motor enthusiasts who want more out of driving a car, seek that extra bit of thrill and excitement. We are to a certain extent limited to what we can and can’t do while driving on public roads, so it’s difficult to experience the full potential of what your car can offer.

A lot of people are unsure of what it means and entails to get your Advanced Drivers Licence, so here is what you can expect and look forward to…


Preparing you for the worst

Advanced Driving has been described as: “The ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely, systematically and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to make reasonable progress unobtrusively, with skill and responsibility.”

Safety is the main factor when it comes to driving on our roads nowadays, so you need to help ensure your personal safety and the safety of others on the road. Obtaining an Advanced Driver’s license will not only give you practical driving experience, but also confidence to deal with potential dangers, from avoiding head on collisions, to the optimal way to respond in a hijacking situation.


Although most drivers think they are well off and feel confident behind the wheel, most accidents occur because of human error and Advanced Driving courses are designed to improve road safety by increasing the skill of the driver and equipping him/her with the appropriate driver response.


Before enrolling in one of the driving academies, make sure that you are capable of completing an Advanced Driving Course, these courses can be intense for some people and a lot to digest.
