Advanced Car Driving and Motorcycle Riding - Improve your skills
Why Advanced Driving / Riding?
Advanced driving / riding is the ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely,
systematically and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to progress unobtrusively with skill and responsibility.
This skill requires a positive but courteous attitude and a high standard of driving / riding competence based on concentration,
effective all-round observation, anticipation, and planning. This must be co-ordinated with good handling skills.
An advanced driver / rider will always have their vehicle in the right place on the road, at the right time,
travelling at the right speed with the correct gear engaged and can always stop safely on their own side of the
road in the distance they can see to be clear (DSA, RoADAR, IAM, 1997).
