What is Advanced Driving?

In the year 2000 the DSA of Great Britain agreed (with IAM, RoSPA, and DAM) the following definition of advanced driving:

“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. The 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 should 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.”

The ROSPA Driving Test

Martin has recently passed the ROSPA Advanced driving Test and been awarded a Silver Grade.

The RoSPA advanced driving test is regarded as the most comprehensive and challenging available to the public. It is monitored and approved by the Driving Standards Agency. A RoSPA gold is the highest civilian driving standard available and the holder will be a master of his or her art. It is unlikely that anyone will gain a high grade without a good knowledge of The Highway Code and Roadcraft.

Advanced driving is the ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely, systematically and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to 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 on its own side of the road in the distance that can be seen to be clear.’

SILVER AWARD
This grade will be awarded to drivers who are well above average. These drivers will drive consistently safely and systematically but without the final polish, flair and smoothness of the gold driver. They will demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the system of car control. Candidates must be able to drive up to the permitted speed limit where it is safe to do so and vary speed according to circumstances and conditions. It must be emphasised that silver is an extremely high grade and a commendable achievement.
