Our aim at Herefordshire Advanced Drivers is to help drivers of any age or ability to develop safer techniques and attitudes.Feeling safer and more confident, you will also become a better driver.Driving well and being in control means that you (and your passengers) will enjoy your driving more.We approach this by not just focussing on driving skills alone, because we believe that being aware of everything going on around you has greater influence.Come to one of our events and find out how confident and in-control you can become, either one-to-one, or in a group at one of our Driver Refresher Days.No mandatory testing is involved, just practical, friendly advice that will benefit you for life. Please email us and let us know how we could help you.
