    Course overview

    Towns and cities present drivers with the most complex and diverse range of challenges, combining a multitude of junction layouts, road signs and traffic controls with a whole host of distractions and vulnerable road users. Even on a short journey through your hometown, you might encounter several different speed limits, two or three types of pedestrian crossings, a restricted bus lane or a one-way system. Perhaps your urban commute is very congested and features a lot of cyclists, school-run traffic or under-pressure delivery vehicles.

    The opportunities for involvement in an incident are particularly frequent in towns and cities, so they are therefore a common area of focus for many drivers concerned about keeping themselves and their families safe on the road.

    Our Driving in Towns module costs just £49 for 75 minutes' one-to-one on-road training with an IAM RoadSmart expert, and is delivered in your own car at a time and place to suit you. It will give you the specific skills necessary to drive safely in urban environments and to deal confidently and effectively with the day-to-day situations you'll encounter. It's the ideal way to ensure you remain a skilled and safe driver - whatever your journey entails.
