The Advanced Driving Course

Chorley Advanced Motorists (CAM) is here to help drivers get more enjoyment out of being on the road.  Our experts can help you learn new skills, develop existing ones and have fun behind the wheel.

We run four advanced driving courses a year, each lasting up to 12 weeks.  A course comprises a series of one-to-one driving sessions on Sunday mornings, plus two theory sessions which take place on Monday evenings.  You also have the opportunity to meet an examiner at a third Monday evening session, to ask any questions you may have about the test. 

CAM operates “mass guidance”, meaning you go out with a different Observer each week to offer you the widest possible range of experience available.

Observed drives take place every Sunday morning at 10am from the Tesco Supermarket car park, Ordnance Avenue, Buckshaw Village, Chorley, PR7 1EL - click here for location map.


The IAM RoadSmart advanced driving course provides drivers with the skills, experience and understanding to quickly adapt to a range of situations. 

In addition to becoming a safer driver:

  • on passing your test, you become an IAM member and can often receive insurance benefits – around 90% of our members who ask for a quote receive preferential terms.
  • you’ll also save on maintenance and fuel costs as you’ll become a more efficient driver.
  • plus, an advanced driving qualification can look good on your CV too!
