Considering the amount of time we spend driving and the everyday risks involved in being on the roads, it’s worrying to think that perhaps you’re still actually a novice at driving. For most people, that is the case. However, very few people ever continue improving their driving tactics once they’ve gotten their driver’s license. While it’s not really common knowledge that there are many levels to driving skill development, it only seems sensible that you should spend a good amount of time refining and improving your driving style so that you can keep yourself - and others on the road - as safe as possible.
Advanced driving courses offer you the opportunity to become a better driver and teach you crucial skills to avoid accidents and keep your vehicle safe from needing unexpected car service and repair.
Who Are Advanced Driving Courses For?
Well, everyone who drives, basically. Car journalists and professional drivers undergo extra training through advanced driving courses to ensure that they can handle powerful vehicles. These courses can be a life-preserving investment for anyone who wants to drive with more confidence and know-how to handle unexpected situations.
What Do Advanced Driving Courses Involve And What Kinds Are There?
There are various types of courses to take, each offering unique benefits to make you a better driver. Defensive driving courses teach you to be extra vigilant and know what to look out for on the road. You’ll also learn how to steer and counter-steer if your car slides unexpectedly to prevent rolling. Hijack prevention courses are aimed at teaching you what to be aware of in case of hijacking situations, how to understand typical criminal behavior and tactics in this scenario, and how to escape or evade a hijacking safely.
4x4 Driving Courses are ideal for anyone who owns a luxury SUV or 4x4 vehicle and wants to really get the most out of driving them. You’ll be trained on a variety of terrains and be subjected to every conceivable off-road situation, including gravel hill climbs, muddy slopes, uphill and downhill slopes, as well as very challenging dongas and water-filled zones. During this course, you’ll learn about all the various functions of your vehicle and the correct tactics to use to navigate any landscape.
Lastly, there are high-performing courses. This course will have you training on a race track at high speeds to learn how to handle your vehicle, navigate turns, and know when to speed up, slow down, and change gears at just the right time. This is a crucial course for anyone to undergo if they’ve recently acquired a luxury sports vehicle or any vehicle with a high-performance engine and aren’t used to handling so much power.
If you drive one of most of the popular brands in South Africa, including BMW, VW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, and others, you can contact them directly for the contact details of a recommended advanced driving school.

With rising petrol prices putting strain on the pockets of car owners, adaptations to the traditional engine structure and functionality has become a big focus for car manufacturers. We’ve seen a sharp decline in new cars being released with diesel variants in the lineup as well, due to increased pressure on the industry to come up with more environmentally-friendly solutions that will help reduce the planet’s overall CO2 pollution levels. These two factors have heralded the introduction of turbocharged versions of almost all new models of cars being released today - which is great news for new car buyers looking for a car that won’t guzzle petrol or spew out as much toxic residue as older models did. For existing car owners, there’s also the option of upgrading their engines with turbochargers to get the same effect - and you can have it done at the same place you’d go to for a car service and repair.
What Does Downsizing An Engine With Turbo-charging & Fuel Injection Mean?
Traditional petrol engines contain a series of cylinders that make up the heart of what powers the entire vehicle. They consist of valves and pistons that move up and down, creating a compression chamber that causes combustion in the engine. Most standard cars are fitted with four cylinders, while more powerful vehicles have six or eight cylinders. More cylinders equal more power, but the cost of running such an engine becomes very apparent when you look at how their fuel consumption compares to a car with less power. Turbo-charging an engine involves removing some of these cylinders and optimising the remaining ones so that it performs just as well - if not better - as it did with more cylinders. Fewer cylinders mean less demand for fuel, and with fuel injection and turbo-charging, that means your car will deliver great performance while saving you a good bit on petrol in the long run. Fuel injection, as an addition, involves modifying your engine with very precise fuel injectors that deliver fuel into the cylinders at exactly the right time and amount so that no fuel is wasted in the process. Traditionally, the fuel is dispersed to all four cylinders indirectly, which means the distribution of fuel is often not optimal.
How Does It Work?
Fuel injectors are installed in the manifold of each cylinder, allowing for direct fuel deposits at a very consistent and precise rate. This will require modification of your car’s engine in order to relay the path that your fuel flows. For turbo-charging, a turbo-charger modification is fitted to the exhaust of your car. It sucks a large amount of the exhaust gases that would be expelled back in, then that air gets pushed back up the turbine to increase the amount of pressure in the cylinder where combustion takes place. The increase in pressure boosts the distribution of petrol and delivers far better engine performance as a result.
If you’re considering buying a new car, it’s well worth it to look at turbo-charged and fuel injection variants. Should you wish to have these upgrades made to your existing vehicle, contact an auto workshop where you typically go for car service and repairs. Get in touch with Motus Select for a service you can trust.
