Taking further driver training...

Hello,

I passed my driving test 6 months ago and even before then I knew that I wanted to continue my learning after "the big day". I'm not sure if this is because I was an older learner or because I have a family or maybe a mixture of both but I was certain that I hadn't learnt everything I wanted to with regards to driving.

I am continuing my learning with the same ADI and loving every minute of it so I know it's the right decision for me but I am intrigued to know how many learners or newly qualified drivers actually take up extra training?

Re: Taking further driver training...

Sadly far too few.

My first Pass Plus this year will be for a lad who passed late last year, and has had an accident in the family car. sad Bet they wish they'd booked it when he passed.

You don't say what the reasons for the road traffic incident (RTI) were, but you suggest (hidden) that doing Pass Plus would have prevented this RTI. Almost without exception, in every RTI there is a degree of blame attached to every driver involved in the incident. (eg from the main instigator to the other  involved parties who didn't recognise a bad situation was evolving or about to evolve). In what way do you think the Pass Plus would have prevented this RTI?

Re: Taking further driver training...

Contact your local advanced driving group and ask them for a free assessment and then take it from there

As an IAM observer/advisor I can inform you that the total cost, apart from your time and fuel, is about £140 if you decide to take it on

give me your county and i'll give you your local contact info

Re: Taking further driver training...

2009,  RoSPA launched its Young Drivers Assessment for 17-24-year-olds. The assessment gives young drivers an objective appraisal of their skills and attitude at the wheel, enabling them to take action to improve areas of concern.

2011.  The IAM has launched Momentum, a new two-part assessment designed for younger drivers (17-25) who have passed their driving test.Momentum incorporates two modules; an interactive online assessment, followed by an on-road session with an IAM examiner. It does not involve an exam and there is no risk of failure. It is designed to offer a quick, low-cost option for improving the confidence, awareness and safety of younger drivers.

If you google both of the above it will give you more information and is a lot cheaper than going down the Advanced test route at present. The test is important and I would highly recommend it.
