Driving at night

This covers the important parts of driving at night, dawn and dusk. You'll learn about:

  • the importance of using headlights correctly
  • adjusting to the dark
  • judging speed and distance
  • the correct use of lights and keeping them clean
  • dealing with dazzle
  • hard-to-see road users
  • parking issues

Driving on dual carriageways

Dual carriageways are high speed roads where the two carriageways are separated by a central reservation. You'll need to have particular skills, including:

  • effective observation, using your mirrors and checking blind spots
  • judgement and planning ahead
  • separation distances
  • joining and leaving a dual carriageway
  • overtaking and lane discipline
  • the correct use of speed

Driving on motorways

This should be a practical session if possible. If there is no motorway nearby, it will be covered in a theory session.You should drive on a motorway as soon as you can afterwards so you can put the theory into practice.

The topics covered include:

  • journey planning
  • joining and leaving a motorway, and using slip roads
  • safe speeds in different circumstances
  • effective observation
  • signs, signals and markings
  • overtaking and lane discipline
  • courtesy to other road users
  • motorway fatigue
  • breakdown procedures
  • use of lights, including hazard warning lights 
  • debris on the carriageway
  • crosswinds

All the modules have strong links with each other and are usually both combined and overlapped in order to have the greatest benefit. Once you have completed a minimum of 1 hour on each subject (further training is occassionally necessary in order to achieve the required standard) you will be awarded a certificate which entitles you to up to 30% discount on your first years insurance.*  This potential saving can far outweigh the cost of the course itself and will provide a great head start on your driving career.....and remember, best of all, THERE'S NO TEST!!
