Defensive Advanced Driving

Highway codeAs a former Police Driving Instructor, it has been my privelege to have instructed a great variety of individuals many of whom attained high standards and some of whom are now advanced Police Driving Instructors themselves.  Driving is a lifetime skill which we perhaps are inclined to take for granted and it does concern me when a person is asked as to when they last read or even looked at the Highway code and so many people unashamedly reply "not since I passed my test!"

It may come as a surprise to learn some statistics and costs of Road Traffic Collisions.  The facts and figures as recorded are as follows: - Damage only accidents cost approximately £2023.00 per accident. A road traffic collision involving Slight Injury costs on average £21280.00 per accident.   A road traffic collision involving Serious Injury costs on average £217,371.00 and the most horrifying of all, each road collision involving a fatality costs on average £1,908,933.00 YES ALMOST 2 MILLION POUNDS! (Figures from "Road Accidents Scotland" - 2007)

For that reason, VitaLDrive is committed to helping individuals together with companies and company employees improve driving skills by participating in defensive / advanced driving.  These courses are available for all drivers who already have a full driving licence and have perhaps unwittingly allowed themselves to fall into habits that are perhaps not the safest and do not contribute to the safest of driving practices.  Habits and familiarity can become common practice and until identified and addressed such habits in driving can have serious consequences.

Defensive - Advanced Driving is based on relevant Power Point presentations, written exams and many years of practice and proven tested systematic driving practices. In participating on this course you will be exposed to many good practices which for you will become normal driving practice which when practiced will allow you to drive according to the System of Car Control "WHICH IS A WAY OF APPROACHING AND NEGOTIATING HAZARDS, THAT IS METHODICAL SAFE AND LEAVES NOTHING TO CHANCE." - Police Roadcraft Mannual 2008
