This defensive driving course has equipped me with a better understanding of the mechanics of braking suddenly in a car including the way ABS affects deceleration times. I now feel more aware of the importance of driver scanning and awareness, utilising peripheral vision, and not just fixating on the car in front of me. I feel that if I incorporate what I learned in this course into my everyday driving, then I will be much better prepared to avoid crashes and minimise damage to myself, my passengers and my vehicle. I will recommend this course to family and friends!

Great experience, send me more offers from there - loved it! Photos of the day would be a great extension and easy to have arranged - maybe they could look into that for future .

The more skills my Daughter learns about driving makes me feel more comfortable when she is out there on the Roads, thanks to the guys at the Defensive Driving course.

As a learner driver, I now feel more confident in my abilities and have a much better understanding of my vehicles capabilities. Now I am looking forward to the level 2 defensive driving to better my skills even more. I can't wait to get my P's. Thank you!
