  • Description
    • Full day defensive driving course in your own car
    • Learn from the most experienced instructors in Brisbane
    • Perfect for L-Platers, P-Platers, Corporate Fleet and Court Order drivers

    Perfect your driving skills with the best defensive driving course in Brisbane, and the closest driver training venue to Brisbane. The aim of the course will be to provide post licence driver training to raise awareness, skill levels and assess attitude and the potential dangers associated with the wrong attitude!

    This will be achieved through a mixture of theoretical and practical driving sessions conducted at normal road speeds in the participants own vehicles.

    The course is suitable for young drivers (from L Platers) right up to the more experienced drivers that just need to hone their skills. It can be conducted in any roadworthy vehicle from the smallest sedan right up to 4 x 4 and light commercial vehicles.

    The course will be conducted in a relaxed, enjoyable way encouraging participant interaction and involvement.

    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 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 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 certificates and course notes are handed out as recognition of having completed the day.
