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 concludes with the original Advanced Driving Test - which uniquely leads to a recognised advanced drivers' qualification.


  • Based on the Police Driver Handbook, our four-day advanced driving course prepares drivers for the Advanced Driving Test

  • Better at anticipating changes, more observant and with enhanced handling skills, advanced drivers have been proven to be less likely to be involved in a road traffic accident
  • This advanced driving training is ideal for company car and van drivers as well as immediate response drivers
  • Delegates can even take the RoSPA Advanced Test and achieve qualified advanced driver status within a week!

During this practical driving course delegates will learn a systems approach to pre-use vehicle checks. They will also come to 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, including improved observations 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.

Up skilling your fleet will deliver a host of business benefits.

Most obviously, as advanced drivers are proven to be safer drivers, you will benefit from reduced accident risk and exposure to vehicle damage. This in turn will positively impact on fleet insurance.

A recognised driving qualification will also boost both morale and company image by sending a clear message that your organisation takes fleet safety seriously.

Moreover, advanced drivers' skilled techniques keep both fuel consumption and vehicle wear and tear to a minimum, meaning that you'll enjoy long-term lower costs.
