Free advanced driving course for under 25s

26 April 2017

Young motorists in Cheshire West and Chester are being offered the chance to take an Advanced Driving course for free.

Young drivers between the ages of 17 and 25 can learn how to have total control of their car, brilliant observation skills and increased awareness of other road users’ behaviour.

Fees must be paid up front but they will be refunded upon completion of the course and passing the Advanced Test.

The Council’s Director of Place Operations, Maria Byrne said: “Attending an advanced driving course can improve knowledge, awareness, concentration and car handling skills, making you a more confident driver and 70% less likely to be involved in an accident than an ordinary driver.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. 

The course, which is approved by Cheshire West and Chester Road Safety Team and Cheshire Constabulary, has been organised in partnership with the Chester Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) RoadSmart Group.

To book at place contact Mavis Bartlett on 01244 470500, email or text Robert Jones on 07842 798 041.
