Defensive Driving Courses

The Defensive Driving course provides post licence driver training to raise awareness and skill, and to assess potential dangers associated with the wrong attitude. This is achieved through theoretical and practical driving sessions in the participants' own vehicles. Good for sedans to 4x4 and light commercial vehicles, the course suits P Platers to more experienced drivers looking to hone their skills. Book Now & You Save!

Jeff was an awesome instructor. He was very knowledgeable and a very clear and professional speaker to the group. Thanks for a great day Jeff. This was definately a beneficial experience. I would reccomend that all drivers should do this course, should be compulsory for all new drivers. I was able to regain my confidence back on the roads after being involved in an accident. I now know I am driving a very safe car.

Jeff and Pete did a wonderful job to provide a non-judgmental, fun and informative defensive driving course. I thought it would be dry and boring, I was glad to be proved wrong! thanks. R Delbridge Drives home the message about wiping 5km off your speed. Having experienced it at the course, it stands true. Also highlighted some capabilities of what your own car can do. I never thought it would make a diffence but since undertaking the course my confidence and awareness have changed dramitically.

I recommend that all 1st year red "P" platers do this course as a refresher to safer driving.

Thanks for everything, I enjoyed it so much when I came home my parents were shocked that I had fun because they thought that I was only going there to learn, not to have fun!

What an absolutely awesome day! The best fun I have had in a long time! The staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble, even when my battery went flat, a jump start got me back in the game! Sensational!!!

The defensive driving course is ideal for Corporate Fleet Training, P-Plate drivers or those on a court order to undertake Defensive Driver Training.

All defensive driving courses are conducted in a relaxed, enjoyable way encouraging participant interaction and involvement. The focus of the day is definitely not on driving defensively, not fast and dangerously! After initial introductions a lecture session will explain what defensive driving is all about and provide a vital evaluation of driver attitude and an awareness of the inherent dangers of driving on the road. Defensive driving techniques, driver attitude and vision will be covered together with correct use of modern safety features. An explanation of the correct braking techniques will be covered before being put to the test in a practical demonstration. Participants will then be subjected to potential emergency braking situations on a variety of wet surfaces.

Following a break for lunch another lecture session will typically cover tyres, vehicle dynamics and skid control. For the afternoon a combination of exercises will include vehicle balance and smoothness, corner lines and basic skid control. A final short lecture will recap the day, re-assess the driver’s attitude before Defensive Driving Course certificates and course notes are handed out as recognition of having completed the day. Theoretical subjects covered usually include:

  • Defensive driving “What it means and how it is achieved”
  • Evaluation of “the” main part of the car “the driver”
  • Driver attitude
  • Practical Road Safety Tips
  • Explanation of safety features of modern cars and how to use them
  • Tyres and their importance in driving safety
  • Vision skills
  • Basic vehicle dynamics and skid control

Typically, practical exercises will be conducted in:

  • Assessment of vehicle condition
  • Seating & steering
  • Emergency braking with & without ABS
  • Emergency lane changes
  • Reaction times and their effects on stopping distance.
  • Vehicle handling / steering
