Great – you’ve found us! We are a voluntary group based in the East Midlands that helps people improve their driving and pass an advanced RoSPA driving test. Our group is based in Derby and many of our members are from the Derby area, but we accept associates and full members From all over the East Midlands. We also now have a satellite group that meets in Cheadle

Our main aim is to train anyone who is willing in advanced driving, educating our neighbours and others around us in order to become more confident, safer and better drivers.

“But I’m a good driver” you may say, and many people think they are. There is always room for improvement, especially if you have been driving for a number of years. How long is it since you last looked at the highway code? How is your confidence since that accident last month? Is there anything you can do about getting those speeding points?

We can develop your driving skill and help you become a safer driver on our roads. Have a look around our site and please contact us if you think we can help you or you would like to find out more.

Picture this – 63 year old man thinks he’s a competent driver. But then a niggling doubt arises – perhaps hes not as good as he thinks. A pal of mine was already enrolled in RoSPA and convinced me to…
