Bespoke driving courses, tailored to the needs of each individual, are available at any time of the year. After enrolment, you will be provided with IAM RoadSmart’s Advance Driving Course log book which contains all the theory. Weekly driving sessions using your own car, will be arranged with your Observer at mutually convenient times.
For those who prefer to cover the theory with other like-minded individuals, you can attend our classroom ‘Modules’ in Elgin Library on Thursday evenings from 19:30 – 21:00 for six weeks. The sessions supplement the scope of the IAM RoadSmart log book and come as an additional, FREE part of the course. The first drive, using your own car, takes place from 10:00 – 11:30 on the Saturday after the first ‘Module’. Thereafter, weekly drives are arranged at mutually convenient times. The first week provides a taste of the course and if you decide to continue, you’ll enrol on week two.
Whichever option you choose to take, the course costs £149. This covers your IAM RoadSmart membership, course log book, tuition and test fee. Your Observer will coach you until you reach the standard required to take the Advanced Driving test. There’s £30 Cash Back if you’re under 26 on successful completion of the course. You’ll be assessed continuously to see if you are ready to take the Advanced Driving test, which is usually after 8 drives. If you’re not test ready, you’ll continue your driving sessions until you are. There’s no time limit on this course beyond the one you set yourself, but twelve weeks should be your aim.
There is no obligation to take the test and if you decide not to, just simply tell your Observer.
