Kirsten Mudge of Kilmarnock, Driving Lesson Testimonial
Thank you to Dave of Glencor, who never gave up on me even though I was sometimes a challenge, but he got me through my test in the end. Dave's professional manner and feedback was an added bonus.
Louise Mudge of Kilmarnock, Driving Lesson Testimonial
My experience with Glencor Driving School has been a positive one. Dave was very patient and explained thoroughly what was required to make me an improved driver from week to week. I gained confidence from week to week and as a result I was delighted to have passed my driving test first time. Thanks Dave!

I teach Pass Plus motorway driving lessons in and around Glasgow. With guidance, you will do all the driving to and from Glasgow.

To facilitate the drive to Glasgow, take 4 of the 6hrs in one session. The route to and from Glasgow will be designed to enable several modules of the course to be covered. Refreshments will be provided on route.

The Six Pass Plus Modules

Why should you quickly use the main mirror before and after you start to slow?
Well, I have several times had to use the horn because the driver behind was not looking forward, 'Rubber Necking', and therefore not slowing. When I sounded the horn they quickly looked forward then hit their breaks. That's several collisions avoided due to using the main mirror.

Pass Plus Modules - 6 PassPlus Modules

The Six Pass Plus Modules

The duration of each module is dependent on each individual's needs, but the course will last for 6hrs.
Topics which cannot be covered on practical driving lessons e.g. snow, will be covered verbally only.

Module 1 - Town Driving

The first part of this module begins with an introduction to PASS PLUS, explaining the course aims and the skills and knowledge to be covered.

The second part of the module is a practical session, covering the different features of driving in town, such as complex junctions and public transport. You'll concentrate on: -

  1. observation, judgment and awareness
  2. eye contact
  3. consideration for vulnerable road users
  4. being cautious but not over cautious
  5. keeping space around your car.

Patient and understanding, David really helped me recognise my strengths and weaknesses then planned ahead to build my confidence up to a stage where I was ready to sit my test.

Module 2 - All-Weather Driving

As much of this module as possible should be covered in a practical session.

You'll focus on correct speed, safe stopping distances, plus seeing and being seen in: -

  1. rain
  2. sleet, snow and ice
  3. mist and fog
  4. bright sunshine.

You will also look at skidding: -

Life is expensive,

  1. observing the road ahead
  2. making progress safely
  3. bends, hills, uneven roads and dead ground
  4. keeping a safe distance from the vehicle ahead
  5. safe overtaking.

It focuses especially on being aware and showing consideration for: -

  1. pedestrians, horse riders and animals in the road
  2. farm entrances

  3. the need for a safe separation distance
  4. joining and leaving a dual carriageway
  5. overtaking and lane discipline

Module 6 - Motorway Driving

This module should be a practical session if at all possible.

You should drive on a motorway as soon as you can afterwards so you can
put the theory into practise.

The topics covered include: -

  1. planning journeys in advance
  2. joining and leaving a motorway, using slip roads
  3. safe speeds in different circumstances
  4. effective observation all around your vehicle

Ways to spot a drunk driver:
A car can be a lethal weapon when operated by a drunk driver.

A driver may be drunk if the vehicle:
Makes wide turns.
Straddles the centre line or weaves back and forth.
Exceeds the speed limit or drives unusually slow.
Comes close to hitting another vehicle or object.
Drives off the road or into an oncoming lane of traffic.
Swerves, drifts or follows too closely.
Stops for no reason or turns abruptly or illegally.
Signals inconsistently or drives at night with no headlights.

Remember, drunk drivers are dangerous and may not be avoidable.
If you suspect someone is driving drunk, keep your distance,
jot down the licence plate number and call the police.
You could be helping to prevent a fatality.

Be aware, the driver may not be drunk,
it's just the way some people drive!!!
