Since 1935, the equivalent of the highway patrol police in Britain have been continually developing and refining the world's most proven system of safe driving.  It is known as the "System of Car Control" and it quite simply has no equal in terms of maximum safety.  In 1955, "The System" was made available for regular, civilian drivers, since which time it has been in constant use by the world's two largest membership organizations for advanced drivers, the IAM1 and RoSPA-ADAR [RoADAR]2

Why you should choose ADA for courses


Our chief instructor, and ADA's background

Since 2005, this unbeatable approach to protecting yourself and your family has been taught in North America, but only by Advanced Drivers of America [ADA].  Prior to 2011 it has been available in the US only for corporate personnel, but now it is available for you!


As part of our own growth and development at ADA, we are now expanding our services so that we can visit many states and cities around the USA, specifically to work with any individuals who not only want greater safety but also want to inject enjoyment back into their driving.  However, the capacity of each course is only three people so you will need to act fast to secure a place.  We cannot guarantee that we will ever go back to the same city or training location twice!


Our instructors will be coming to California to run 2-day Defensive Driving courses, a 3-day "Bronze" Advanced Driving course and possibly a 5-day "Silver" Advanced Driving course at each location depending upon demand.  (See course descriptions in the "Further Reading" section, above.) If you would like to be added to our list (without obligation) of people who would like to consider training in any of the cities listed at the top of this page or, alternatively, if you cannot attend one of those cities but would like to consider having the training elsewhere (in any American state), please e-mail us with your details and the name/state of the city in question.  Our policy is simple:  If we can get enough prospective trainees in any city, we will come to you.


And what you get, in return, is a unique opportunity to learn the most in-depth, most accurate and most reliable system of safe on-road driving in the world.
