The main reason for making these DVDs is to pass on some of the knowledge and experience Chris has gained working at the ‘cutting edge’ of police advanced driver training at the world famous

Metropolitan Police Motor Driving School at Hendon

NW London with the aim of improving driving standards  and road safety in general.

“During three decades, we’ve attended courses on advanced driving and watched countless videos on the subject, but none has inspired us like Chris Gilbert’s Ultimate Driving Craft DVD series. Whether you’re new to driving, need a refresher course, or are working hard to improve your driving to a very high standard, Chris’s programmes offer priceless advice and a clear demonstration of all that’s needed to become a highly perceptive and safe driver.

“Chris, have received the full set of DVDs, and I have learned a lot through the instruction given. I must say I am very impressed with what you cover in your driving, and highly recommend them to anyone who gets behind the wheel. If every driver viewed these DVDs and put even 10% into practice, our roads would become a lot safer and driver frustration will dramatically reduce too!”

Ultimate Driving Craft 1. Commentary

For more than 70 years UK police driving schools have taught commentary driving as a means of developing a high visual driving horizon. The result for the driver is more information, more time to assess, more time to act, superior hazard perception skills and unhurried polished driving; the hallmark of the UK police advanced driver. In this DVD I will explain and demonstrate, in easy stages, the best method of teaching yourself commentary driving building from basics up to police advanced level.

However, this DVD is not just about commentary driving. It also covers town and city driving, motorways, country roads, bad weather driving, making safe progress, positioning and much more, all delivered with a detailed, informative, instructor’s commentary.

“I took my IAM Special Assessment yesterday and thanks to your help in your DVD I carried out a running commentary all the way through, the examiner was quite pleased to say the least. Thanks for sharing your wealth of experience with the likes of me”
Clive MacLennan.

Ultimate Driving Craft 2.  Day & Night

This double DVD builds on the knowledge gained from viewing Ultimate Driving Craft 1. I will unlock the mysteries of safe cornering and explain and demonstrate how the correct entry speed can be achieved into any bend anywhere in the world. Guesswork and gut feel is replaced with a tangible means of assessment resulting in very accurate approach and entry speed into any bend.

In my view the police method of cornering has never been explained in a way that is easy to understand and there is no finer way to explain it than with a moving picture that slowly unfolds aided by clever graphics. Almost every type of bend is covered.

Many times women drivers have asked me what they should do when driving alone at night when they suspect they are being followed. Having taught anti-surveillance driving techniques to the Government Car Service (Ministerial Drivers) I have used those skills to answer that question on the Night Driving disc.

” I watched your latest DVD last night and I had to drag myself off to bed at 1.45am. Some good learning sections for breaking it down for training purposes; thought the way you describe driving through bends – brilliant”. TC.

Ultimate Driving Craft 3  Eyes on Main Beam

This is a double DVD set, and features advanced graphics and animation. Chris is particularly pleased with the high quality animation which will set new standards for driving DVDs. Run time is 140 minutes.

You will see the highlights of Chris driving one of his favourite fast Hendon advanced car course routes through five counties – Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. There is a picture-in-picture view from a second camera of Chris behind the wheel so you will see steering and every single gear change, his application of the system of car control and more importantly, the timing of such.

You will also see a Central London drive with the second camera facing the rear. The editing company have reversed the image and positioned it as picture-in- picture and mounted it where the rear view mirror would be – very clever!

“I’ve viewed the new DVD 3 and it’s excellent. I particularly like the section on timing of appointments into a junction or bend as arguably this is one of the hardest but crucial parts of advanced driving to master. The clever animation is an excellent training aid in demonstrating this and I shall look forward to viewing the DVD over and over again!” TW
