Advanced Driving



Definition of Advanced Driving


Advanced Driving has been around for a long time.


The Metropolitan Police Driving School was set up at Hendon in 1935.

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (now called IAM Roadsmart) was formed in 1956.

The League of Safe Drivers was formed in 1960, and was subsequently taken over by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in 1980, and then became RoSPA Advanced Drivers Association (ROADA) in 1982.

The Diamond Advanced Motorists Test was introduced in 1992.


Despite the long history of advanced driving it was not until the year 2000 that there was an agreed definition of advanced driving


In 2000 the definition below was agreed by:-


The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) (Now the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, DVSA)


Diamond Advanced Motorists


The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM)


The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA)


Definition


Advanced Driving is the ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely, systematically and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to make reasonable progress unobtrusively with skill and responsibility. This skill requires a positive but courteous attitude and a high standard of driving competence based on concentration, effective all-round observation, anticipation and planning. This must be co-ordinated with good handling skills.


The vehicle will always be at the right place on the road at the right time, travelling at the right speed with the correct gear engaged and can always be stopped safely in the distance that can be seen to be clear.


Benefits of Advanced Driving


A Lower Accident Rate

‘Road Accidents’ are rare!

What are commonly called ‘Accidents’, should perhaps be called ‘Crashes’ or ‘Collisions’ because they have a cause.

An ‘Accident’ implies something unavoidable.

A ‘Crash’ has a cause, (usually human error) and therefore are largely avoidable.


An Advanced Driver is less likely to cause a Crash

An Advanced Driver is also more likely to be able to spot the Crashes that somebody else is trying to cause, and avoid them!


Cheaper Car Insurance

The various advanced driving organisations have negotiated either lower rates or better terms for their members.

(It is possible that you may find an insurance company that does not offer a discount that is cheaper)

Advanced Drivers are more likely to have full no claims bonus, because of their lower accident or crash rate.


Safety

Safety for you

Safety for your passengers

Safety for your car

Safety for other road users sharing the road with you.


Less Stress, More Enjoyment

Increased awareness of what is happening around you, and the ability to look and think further ahead will improve your ability to anticipate events rather than react to them.

This enables you to make brisk progress with safety, making driving less stressful and more enjoyable.


Do I Have to Drive Like A Learner Driver?


No!


You do have to do things correctly

(not cross your hands, use the mirrors, indicate, etc.)


You will be expected to drive as an experienced driver.

You will be expected to make full use of speed limits, and opportunities to overtake, but always within the boundaries of safety and the law.


Advanced Driving Tests


There are 3 different national organisations offering Advanced Driving Tests, all of them are endorsed and monitored by The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), which also provides quality assurance for their tests.


Diamond Advanced Motorists


IAM Roadsmart (formerly known as Institute of Advanced Motorists)


Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA)


All of the tests vary a little as to duration, content, standard required, and marking system.


All of the tests will usually include driving on different road types:-

Urban areas

Motorways

Dual Carriageways

Rural Roads


Manoeuvres such as Reversing and Parking will also normally be included in each of the advanced driving tests.


Who Are The Advanced Driving Examiners?


Diamond Advanced Motorists Examiners

Diamond Advanced Motorists Examiners are all Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency Approved Driving Instructors, they must also have experience of driver training to advanced level, have passed the Diploma in Driving Instruction (DipDI) (five written exams), passed either the Cardington Special Driving Test, or the Diamond Elite Driving Test, and completed the Diamond Examiners Course.


IAM Examiners

IAM Examiners are usually holders of a Police Advanced Driving Certificate, and some of them are also Police Driving Instructors.


RoSPA Examiners

RoSPA Examiners are usually holders of a Police Advanced Driving Certificate, and some of them are also Police Driving Instructors.


Whichever Test, All of the Examiners will conduct the tests in a professional manner, but the tests are not usually as formal as an ‘L’ test, the examiners will do their best to put you at ease, and are there not only to assess your driving, but to help you to become a better driver.
