    advanced driving lessons/test

    I am thinking of doing an advanced driving course, or test (not sure how it works) I am a little concerned of crashing my car when I get it back so I was thinking that I would benifit from this type of course.

    Has anyone done it or have any info on these type of test/courses??

    It was about £75. It's all common sense really and about perception. They make you drive witth your mirrors more. Jo started doing it before she fell pregnant and had 2 or 3 lessons and they said she wouldn't need many lessons before taking the test.

    lots of driving down backroads. But its mostly a training on being alert. Methods for fast safe cornering and generally making fast progress wherever you go but safely and without breaking laws.

    Very worthwhile and also worth having a lesson or 2 every year after.
