I was not expecting to, but I really enjoyed the course. The delivery of the classroom component was excellent - never boring or slow, always answered questions, and the instructor handled the requisite idiot well. Feedback and encouragement on the practical component was helpful too. Overall I feel like I am going to be a better driver through doing this course.

The intructors on the day were friendly and really knew what they were taliking about. They made sure that we put our ull trust into them to make sure that the day ran smoothly and that saftey was their biggest priority. I personally felt safe and that the course was secure in a sae environment to be carrying out the practices and skills that we learnt on the day.

We put our 16 year old daughter through the course as she has her Learners Permit. At the start she was very nervous and driving home after the course she told me that she certianly feels more confident with her knowlege of road safety, her ability to avoid an accident and has a better understanding of what her vehicle can do in an emergency situation.
