Why is the iSCD/Safe & Considerate Driving Course in Two Parts?
The Safe & Considerate Driving course is delivered in two parts. The first is a theory element. The second part is a session with an Advanced Driving Instructor (ADI) where they will provide practical, personalised, on-road coaching, and they will assist you to create an action plan to address personally relevant issues. Generally, these elements will both be completed on the same day. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to separate the two parts. The first element is now delivered via a virtual online class.
When it is safe to do so, you and your course provider can work together to schedule the on-road coaching element. The second element is a key part of the course to put the theory into practice.
Part 1 – The three hour course will take place online using a digital platform with up to 9 clients and a Trainer.
The course increases clients’ awareness of:
- The causes and negative consequences of risky and inconsiderate driving
- The importance of concentration, observation, anticipation and allowing adequate space and time
- The reasons why their own driving may be unsafe or inconsiderate
You will need access to a device ie tablet, laptop or desktop with microphone and camera with reliable internet connection capable of streaming video. Smart phones may be used however the course will be far more effective if you have a larger screen.
Have paper and a pen available, as you will need these during the course, and a soft drink available to help keep you refreshed.
A quiet private environment with no distractions is required.
You will or should have received correspondence from your chosen course provider explaining what will happen on the course. If you have any further questions please find your course provider FAQ page at FAQs | UKROEd and NDORS under the section heading Accessing Your Course & Your Course Provider. This will also include information of how to contact your course provider.
Part 2 – will be an on-road element of the course. Your course provider will be aware of this when you book your course and will be inviting you to attend your part 2 on-road course when it is safe to do so.
Clients receive practical, personalised, on-road coaching and are encouraged to create an action plan to address personally relevant issues.
