I think this is an excellent product which gives an very good insight into what 'Advanced Driving' is all about. I passed the IAM test some years back, but found on watching the DVD that I had an incomplete undertanding of some aspects - which were very clearly explained, and also demonstrated, by the use of appropriate 'on the road' video clips (with some over-head shots from a Police helicopter).

I would recommend it to anyone thinking of doing the IAM or Rospa tests, to any potential ADI's or, indeed, to anyone who has an interest in better/safer driving.

What a pleasure to watch real experts at work!!

First let me say the content is worth 5 stars. The quality of the DVD however deserves 2 stars at the most, so 3 stars is a compromise to let people know exactly what they will be getting.

The material is excellent if a little dated in its presentation. For more details please read some of the 4 and 5 star reviews! The quality of the DVD picture however is very poor and this distracts from the content. The quality is akin to a poor quality VHS video and it looks like it is a bad VHS to DVD transfer. The in car footage looks completely washed out and has very visible horizontal lines making up the picture. In places the picture distorts towards the edges of the screen and the titles appear to shimmer.

Overall I'd say buy it anyway as the material makes it worth putting up with the quality issues.

I watched this driver's course as part of my training for the Institute of Advanced Motorists Advanced Driving test. I found it of great value for learning new approaches to driving and observation. This production is starting to look a little dated perhaps but contains current information for the Advanced Driving test - which I recently passed.

I bought this DVD and watched it several times before going on my police standard response course. I found that it gave me a good head start on the course. Although the footage is about 10 years old, it is still uptodate on the police system of driving. It concentrates on systematic, controlled and safe driving and follows a group of Metropolitan police students as they start their response course and follows them through to the final drive. There are also some demo drives by Class 1 Instructors. Don't expect any chases or J-turns, this is about staying safe, while making progress, and not taking chances. I would highly recommend this DVD to drivers of any standard who genuinely want to improve the quality of their driving and make it safer.

I am disappointed with this purchase. My IAM observer lent me an old copy of this video and I wanted to buy a more modern version. This DVD had a different cover, so I made the assumption that the recording would be up-to-date. I was wrong. This is exactly the same video content, recorded in the early 80's, if not, earlier.

The commentator is dry, the audio and video are poor quality, and at times, I couldn't quite make out what was being said. It was silly when the commentator mentioned driving on a busy motorway presented many hazards - but they pulled onto a motorway with hardly any traffic on it!

The driving techniques might not have changed in the last 30 years, but the roads and traffic conditions have. As have other driver's driving manner, which should be taken into consideration. The recording needs updating, not just the DVD being re-released. It was a waste of money for me.

Excellent, informative and well produced. Image quality could possibly be a little better but does not distract from the content. Certainly makes one look at ones own driving ability (or lack of!). Very good guide if you are about to embark on the Institute of Advanced Motorists driving programme. Strongly recommend this DVD for all drivers, then there could, perhaps, be less impatient, discourteous drivers on our busy roads!

Using this video shows just what to expect when driving and shows up faults especially on observation and taking action early. I have been practicing after watching the video and it definitely makes you think about how you drive.
