Advanced Driving Course

Advanced drivers are skilled, safe and methodical. RoSPA's advanced driver training course aims to get your fleet up to advanced standard. The course finishes with the original Advanced Driving Test - which leads to an advanced drivers' qualification.

Upon completion of this course, delegates can apply to upgrade to a Level 3 Customised Award in Advanced Driving from RoSPA Qualifications (this course is not on the Ofqual register of qualifications). An additional fee is charged for this service.

RoSPA Qualifications

During this practical driving course delegates will learn a systems approach to vehicle checks. They will understand the effects of human factors, such as attitude and fatigue, on driving performance

The course will focus on developing a systematic and defensive approach to hazard management and risk reduction. This includes improved observation and awareness of potential road risks, in preparation for the RoSPA Advanced Test.

As advanced driving is based on systems detailed in The Police Driver Handbook, Roadcraft, a thorough understanding of both this and the Highway Code is expected.

The course runs on a 3:1 delegate to trainer ratio. It can be tailored to suit specific needs and can be delivered modularly in any vehicle type.

Delegates can receive training and be put through the RoSPA Advanced Test within a week - advantageous if a swift qualification is required.
