‘Dorset Driver’ courses are back

09.29 | 1 December 2011 | | 1 comment

Dorset’s road safety team has organised more of its ‘Dorset Driver’ courses to be held over the winter months, with drivers now able to book online.

The two-hour theory sessions, which cost £5, are designed to help drivers refresh their hazard awareness and knowledge of the road. Topics covered include a Highway Code refresher, driving in the 21st Century, and adverse driving conditions.

The courses are presented by road safety professionals, usually a driving instructor, and drivers are given advice on improving observation, avoiding distractions, keeping a safe distance, driving on dual carriageways and negotiating roundabouts.

Attendees also have the option to sign up for a 90-minute, one-to-one practical driving session on local rural and urban roads.

    This is a great idea and I would certainly go if such a course were run near me.
