HASTE Driving Course

The H.A.S.T.E Driver Training Course

The H.A.S.T.E Driving Course (Hazard Awareness, Space, Time, Eco-driving) is open to all drivers who hold a full driving licence.

The course is virtual and helps you to stay safer on the road. It focuses on a range of techniques for safer and less stressful driving. The course improves your ability to judge and maintain a safe and legal speed for the area you are travelling in.

H.A.S.T.E covers the following topics:

  • Hazard awareness
  • The importance of space and time
  • Eco-driving techniques
  • Speed and severity

If you improve your knowledge of these topics, you may reduce the risk of being involved in a serious crash.

The course is ran in 3 sessions that last approximately 45-60 mins in total, there is an opportunity for a virtual 4th session with a course leader for a Q&A session.

Cost and location

The H.A.S.T.E course currently costs just £35 per person. H.A.S.T.E is normally held in Ashford and Aylesford, but it may be possible to arrange alternative venues – especially if groups of drivers come from a similar location.
