Our world class driver training encompasses the following major competencies:

  1. Road Rules Knowledge: The most important of all the driving skills. You would not be considered good at sport if you didn’t know the rules. To be a good driver you need to know the rules. It’s difficult to perceive what might go wrong if you don’t know what is supposed to happen in the first place.
  2. Vehicle Operational Skills – These basic functional skills teach you how to take off, indicate, change gears, do a hill start, park the car, etc. Teaching muscle memory reflexes will ensure driving becomes a safe habit, we will show you how.
  3. Hazard perception/Identification Skills: Skills to help us identify or perceive the risks around us. Our proactive curriculum teaches drivers to take a worst case scenario and factor it in. By the time of being a P Plate driver you should be looking 100 metres in all directions, we will teach you the skills to do this.
  4. Crash prevention skills: E.g. when following other traffic, a proactive driver will slow down immediately if they see the risk up ahead. They won’t wait for the car in front to slow down first. We teach to pre-emptive driving strategies for all driving conditions.  This includes safe travelling and stopping distances.
  5. Attitude Development: Driving a vehicle solo is an incredibly responsible task, taking into account your passengers, other road users, and your own well being. You are accountable and must take the act of driving seriously. Too many drivers on the road like to blame ‘others’, we teach you how to be a fully accountable driver. The ‘third person’ effect suggests that psychologically drivers consider its always ‘the other’ person in the wrong or that the danger will occur for, we teach you to be accountable in all situations and take ownership for your safe driving choices, to become “STREETWISE”
