What is 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. This skill requires a positive but courteous attitude and high standard of driving competence based on concentration, effective all round observation, anticipation and planning. All this must be coordinated 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 in the distance that can be seen to be clear.
