Observed drives take place every Sunday morning at 10.15 on Union Street car park (also known as the Flat-Iron car park), next to the entrance to Market Walk by Iceland. The postcode is PR7 1DE. (Get directions opposite) Weekday drives can be arranged for those who find they are previously committed on Sundays. 


We have a structured course, but can focus it on anything you may wish, such as motorways, country lanes or town centre driving. We also offer night driving sessions if associates wish for training in this area.

All drivers only ever drive their own cars; Observers demonstrate techniques in their own cars, and Associates are guided while driving their own car. Each session lasts for around an hour and a half.
 
The sessions will introduce advanced driving techniques, skills and ability in the following environments:-
  • Urban
  • Country
  • Motorway/Dual Carriageway
There are two classroom theory sessions, one at the beginning of the course and one half-way through. We also have a "Meet the Examiner" event, where Associates meet the IAM Police Class 1 driver who will take them through their test.
 
The test takes about an hour and a half including a debrief, and is Accredited by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA).
