Address

Woodley Civic Hall, Hyde Rd, Woodley, Stockport SK6 1QG, UK

3 courses a year, each lasting 8 weeks

Commencing January, May & September

Courses

We run three advanced car driving courses a year (in January, May and September), each of which comprises eight practical driving sessions held every second Sunday starting from the car park behind Woodley Civic Hall, Stockport and three evening classroom theory sessions, also held at Woodley Civic Hall. Each drive is followed by a feedback session with one of our friendly volunteer tutors. 

Our driving courses are open to any qualified driver over the age of 18 seeking to refine their existing skills, learn new skills and build confidence. The driving techniques we coach are based on the Police Driver's Handbook 'Roadcraft' and The Highway Code.

Costs

Our joining fee is £40, which includes provision of the Police Drivers Handbook Roadcraft together with all necessary training materials. The fee for Associates who already have the current edition of Roadcraft is £30.00.

 

The RoSPA advanced driving test fee is £57 when booked via our group. For drivers aged 25 and under the test fee is £47 when booked through us, refundable for those who meet the eligibility criteria for our Young Drivers and Riders Scheme (YDRS).  

For tested members, our basic on-going subscription is currently £12 per year. Note our membership fees are separate from any membership fees to the national group of RoSPA Advanced Drivers and Riders. Please see our membership page for more details.
