What makes a good driver?
To be a successful driver is more than just having vehicle-handling skills. It is about having a healthy attitude combined with strong self-discipline and knowledge, coupled with the desire to practice and to perfect personal driving standards each and every time the vehicle is driven. It is to strive forward to a new level of accuracy and smoothness, to aim at consistently producing a drive that is to the very highest of standards.
Many a person has been heard to boast to his or her peers of how well they managed to control a skid, or how they had the ‘skill’ to get themselves out of a situation by producing some trick or other at the crucial moment. The real truth is that if that individual had any real driving skill and ability, they would not have found themselves in a difficult situation in the first place. In almost every case a perceived level of ability is set much higher than in reality.
On the road there are many hazards confronting a driver whom, with a sound level of skill, awareness and knowledge, can considerably reduce the risks to him, his vehicle occupants and other road users by being well equipped to deal with these hazards. Highly developed observation, planning and a sense of anticipation will see each hazardous situation being dealt with in a systematic and safe manner that leaves nothing to chance.
At Advance Driving Academy we help people to develop a true driving skill - the ability to move a vehicle along the road accurately, safely and smoothly, with flow and pace, without breaking any rules of the road nor indulging in anti-social driver behavior.
No matter how high the level of skill, or how well we drive, if we cannot accept that no matter how old or how experienced we are, there is always something more we can learn or improve upon, then we are nowhere near as good as we might like to think we are.
