I'm resigned to driving slower and slower.

Anything that doesn't fit elsewhere - doesn't have to be AD related.

I got into trouble with another poster for talking openly about my experiences and achievements, so I'll hope you'll forgive me for doing so here ;)

When the BMF RTS started its Blue Riband Award advanced course we deliberately (and, from the sales PoV, mistakenly) called it 'high standard' training. And that's really how I've understood AD (or AM).

However, I've always said that I could only see benefits from singling out the 'best' bits of AD and embedding them into L training, rather than waiting and hoping that people would voluntarily take post-test training.

So whether it's called HP, situational awareness, or anything else, IMHO, it's increibly important. FWIW, I'd add in internal locus of control and theory of planned behaviour.

That gives:
- Identify situation of potential vulnerability
- Take responsibility for avoiding it
- Know what to do to control the situation


I'm so old I helped on the ACU L courses back in the mid 1960s.
We tried to reinforce this stuff back then.

:) I started with the RAC/ACU - but a tad later, in 1979.
My own views. For better or worse :)

So now I'm going to challenge you: are you suggesting that L instructors *don't* teach hazard perception?


They, presumably, do so within the constrictions of their remit.

"I want to pass my test, for as little cost as possible".
