The test

The RoSPA advanced driving test is regarded as the most comprehensive and challenging available to the public. It is monitored and approved by the Driving Standards Agency.

The test lasts around 90 minutes, and is taken with a RoSPA Examiner, all of whom are serving or retired Police Officers.

The RoSPA Advanced Driving Test is unique as it is graded Bronze, Silver or Gold. A RoSPA gold is the highest civilian driving standard available and the holder will be a master of his or her art. To see more about what is expected, download our Car Test Guidelines (PDF 228kb).

  • The cost of the advanced driving test in a car for drivers 25 years and under is £41.00 inc VAT.
  • The cost of the advanced driving test in a car for drivers 26 years and over is £51.00 inc VAT.
  • The course can also be done in LGV or PCV, the cost is £63.

Unlike other Advanced Driving and Riding organisations, we also demand 3 yearly re-tests, to ensure that excellent driving standards are maintained. The re-test fee is included in your yearly subscription costs.
