So you think you’re a good driver?

Maybe you are, but how do you prove it to others and to your insurance company?

By becoming a DIAmond Advanced Motorist.

With today’s busy roads more of a challenge than ever and driving standards variable to say the least, learning to drive defensively is not only desirable – it can prove to be an absolute life saver, both for yourself and for other road users.

The DIAmond Advanced Motorist Test is the only advanced test in the UK which uses the Government Driving Standards Agency’s test marking system.

That’s why it is the chosen measure of ability for Britain’s driving elite: the MasterDriver Club.
Passing it or the even tougher DIAmond Special Test will improve your driving technique, your observation skills and your road craft.
In short, it will make you a better, safer driver. It may also qualify you for up to a 30% discount on your car insurance premium.


How good do you have to be?

The current candidates to make up to 15 minor faults over a route often less than 6 miles, in less than 40 minutes. The DIAmond Advanced Motorist Test allows a maximum of 6 minor faults in an hour’s driving over a wide variety of road types and conditions. Candidates are expected to demonstrate progressive driving skills throughout, at a much higher level of competence than for the L Test. Training includes driving at night, on motorways and in adverse weather conditions.

How much training do you need?

That all depends on the individual. after an initial assessment, the Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) will be able to specifically tailor training to the candidate’s individual needs. Inexperienced drivers may need additional training, whereas more experienced drivers may benefit from new techniques.

Who will examine you?

DIAmond Advanced Examiners are specially trained professional examiners. They hold the coveted Diploma in Driving Instruction, have passed the DSA Cardington or DIAmond Special Test and completed the DIAmond Advanced Examiners course.
