We offer intensive, bespoke driver training for those drivers that are taking, or plan to take the RoSPA Advanced Driving Test (RoADAR), or are soon due a re-test. This training is also ideal for drivers who need to pass the RoSPA test as part of their job.
The RoSPA test is considered the most advanced and challenging advanced driving test open to the public.
The test lasts around 60-80 minutes. The examiners are serving or retired Police officers.
What makes the RoSPA Advanced Driving Test unique is that a driver is graded either Bronze, Silver or Gold. To remain a member of RoADAR you will need to take the test every 3 years.
Gold – Gold is only awarded to the driver who shows a consistently high standard of driving throughout the test. The driver will demonstrate a confidence in their ability together with a thorough understanding of the principles contained in Roadcraft and how to apply those principles to situations that occur during the test.
Silver Silver is awarded to candidates who display a skill level well above the average. They will show a thorough understanding of the principles contained in Roadcraft and how to apply those principles to situations that occur during the test. The driver will make safe systematic progress however not demonstrating the consistency, final polish and smoothness of the Gold grade candidate.
Bronze A Bronze grade will be awarded to those candidates who show that they have an understanding of, and the ability to apply, the principles of advanced driving demonstrating a good level of observations and anticipation, but not doing so consistently throughout the test. They will however drive in a safe and legal manner, to a standard that is significantly above that required to pass the appropriate DVSA test.
