Invitation to all drivers in Herefordshire

Our aim at Herefordshire Advanced Drivers is to help drivers of any age or ability to develop safer techniques and attitudes. Being safer, you will also be a better driver. Driving well and being in control means that you (and your passengers) will enjoy your driving more. We approach this by not just focusing on driving skills alone, because we believe that being aware of everything going on around you has greater influence. Come to one of our events and find out how confident and in-control you can become, either one-to-one, or in a group at one of our Refresher Days. No mandatory testing is involved, just practical, friendly advice that will benefit you for life. Please email us and let us know how we could help you.

Together, we can make a difference . . .

Background We are a voluntary service and registered Charity dedicated to developing safer drivers of all ages in Herefordshire, to a standard that is recognised nationally as being better and safer than the average motorist. Through our affiliation with the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists), one of the country’s leading Road Safety organisations, we are an Official Provider of the IAM RoadSmart Advanced Driver course and we offer the opportunity to reduce the toll of fatal and serious accidents on our county’s roads. Professional Services We provide practical support, technical advice, in-car guidance and on-going skills development programmes and, if you wish, when you have developed the necessary skills and confidence, you may apply to take the Advanced Driving Test, which is quality-assured by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA). You can also extend your knowledge, proficiency and confidence by enjoying individual mentoring, through observed drives and specially tailored tuition. Members gain from becoming a progressively advanced driver and might qualify for cheaper car insurance.
Track record We have a higher-than-average number of accredited Nationally Qualified Driver Trainers and Qualified Master Drivers, currently achieving 98% success rate for those undertaking the Advanced Driving test. Courses with you in your own car with one of our Observers are priced competitively and cover all the latest regulations, driving theory and techniques. Personal Support What makes us different is the friendly impartial advice received within the Group. We organise specific Driving Skills days for both new and more experienced drivers with specific tuition in confidence-building. We also arrange Refresher Days, with regular reassessments and Members and Associates of Herefordshire Advanced Drivers are always welcome to attend any of our events. To keep you in touch with news and latest developments, we circulate a quarterly Magazine with regular newsletters by email. We are always pleased to welcome volunteer assistance  and will readily accept any donations and sponsorship to help with our work. We look forward to hearing from you and how we could help you develop as a better, safer driver. Alan Eastough Membership Secretary  01981 540006  members@advanced-drivers.org.uk
