Information on local and national advanced driving organisations
Advanced driving groups have a significant part to play in encouraging drivers to improve their driving standards. Volunteer observers in the groups help encourage drivers to adopt a systematic approach and defensive driving techniques which will improve their overall driving skills and safety.
The benefits of becoming an advanced driver can include:
- cheaper car insurance
- fewer "that could have ended in tears" moments
- more control of manoeuvres
- more enjoyable driving

Some of those experiences you can well do without, so why not learn from someone who has the answers you're looking for and can help you through that learning process safely.
