We offer a bespoke advanced driving course for those that are due in court on a speeding or other driving-related charge. Many people taking this course have been advised to do such by their legal team, or they have decided on their own initiative to do this.
Our Pre-court Advanced Driving Course is designed for those that feel they very well may lose their driving licence and so want to demonstrate to the courts their genuine intention to learn from their mistake and, as a result, become a safer, more responsible driver. This course is very similar to our driver improvement course.
Making a Positive Change:
While we will never claim our driving courses will influence the result of a conviction, neither would we want to; taking a course with the genuine motive of wanting to become a safer driver, and recognising the shortcomings in your driving, can be seen in a very positive light.
Many people who have taken our course, who have had to attend court, have been spared a driving ban, often directly due to the fact they have taken remedial action to improve their driving.
Clients include those caught driving in excess of 100mph, others facing a ban due to totting up of points, plus many more individual cases.
How it Works:
1. You book an on-road pre-court advanced driving course with us
2. We will assign you an advanced driving tutor, who will call to introduce themselves to agree on a date and time for your course
3. Our on-road advanced driving course takes place. Either a 3.5hr or 7hr session in your own car.
4. We email you your full driving report around 2 – 5 days after your course, which you can print and take with you when you’re due in court.

How a Course Runs:
All our courses are road-based, and take place in your own car/van. The course is bespoke and based on the needs of you as a driver, although it follows a set format, which covers:
1. An Initial Drive – This allows our tutors to assess your level of experience and skill after the initial introductions and vehicle safety checks. We ask you to drive the way you normally do with no input from the tutor for around 20 minutes.
We then mark you in 25 areas of driving, either Excellent, Very Good, Good, Adequate or Poor. This forms an excellent basis to build on the session, as both you and your tutor can see the areas which need the most development. This helps create a truly bespoke training session..
2. Coaching – Based on the initial drive, the coaching will be designed around the needs and requirements of you in an interactive and enjoyable way. We will be driving on a range of roads, including urban driving, out-of-town (rural) driving, and motorway/dual carriageways, where a range of advanced and defensive driving techniques are introduced, one of which includes tips on how to better manage your speed, and be more aware of varying speed limits.
During this session, there will be a chance for two-way feedback, along with opportunities to recap what has been covered.
3. Debrief – At the end of the course, there will be a two-way debrief, where the tutor will provide feedback on the session and where feedback from yourself is also encouraged. The tutor will again mark you on the 25 driving areas, which were looked at on the initial drive, making it very easy to see how you improved, to what extent, and in what areas.
3.5hr or 7hr?
We often get asked which course duration is best. This really depends on you and what you want to achieve, and also how serious your charges are. A 3.5hr is fine if you have been caught slightly above the speed limit, where a ban is unlikely. A 7hr course is recommended where a ban is very possible. The 7hr include 2 x 30 min rest breaks, which is highly beneficial on this long course to help retain attention. The report is longer and more detailed on the 7hr session, and while the same things are covered, the full day allows a longer time period to work on and help iron out any ‘at-risk’ driving styles which could be impacting your driving.
