Advanced driving and the benefits

RedLogoSmall Having passed an advanced driving test myself with IAM, the Institute of advanced motorists.   I would like to bring to your attention, the benefits of doing such a driving course and direct you to a site offering discounts for diligent drivers.

The test is one of a number of advanced driving tests, and they’re not just for the benefit of Driving Instructors.

There are a number of general areas that advanced driving tests cover and all of them, in one way or another, will enhance your driving experience.

The most obvious, of course, is safety. By enhancing your awareness and road skills, a Direct Line survey has proven that advanced drivers can be up to 75% less likely to cause an accident. This inevitably has an effect on insurance premiums, with the potential for your no claims bonus to increase year-on-year.

Other benefits include more economical driving, both in terms of fuel consumption and servicing costs as you’ll be trained in a driving style that has the least wear and tear on your vehicle’s components.

And, finally, the confidence you gain on the road will give you an appreciation for driving as the enjoyable experience it should be – there really are no losers in going for one of these qualifications!


Have a look at this article that lists some of the advanced courses available, all of which will qualify you for favourable premiums when applying for insurance.
