Additional information:

  • All delegates should be familiar with the latest edition of the Highway Code.
  • Delegates should wear suitable clothing, bearing in mind that the practical aspects of this course will be taught outdoors.
  • A good-sized area of the yard, that is not in use, must be made available to conduct the training to ensure trainer and delegate safety. This must not involve using a public road.
  • A vehicle must be supplied for use during training. We recommend that the type of vehicle supplied is similar to the type the yard is usually in receipt of, but if this is not possible a car can be used as long as the back windows are covered to get a realistic view of bringing a vehicle in safely.
