Take your driving skills to the next level with this level one defensive driving course full of theoretical and practical lessons.
Take your driving skills to the next level with this level one defensive driving course at the closest driver training venue to Brisbane. The course provides post license driver training to improve awareness, skill levels and attitudes so that you can minimise any potential risks and dangers you may face as a driver.
Your course involves a mixture of theoretical and practical driving sessions conducted at normal road speeds in your own vehicle. It's suitable for young drivers (L Platers must bring a licensed driver) right up to the more experienced drivers that just need to hone their skills.
A lecture session will take you through 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 and re-assess the driver’s attitude before certificates and course notes are handed out as recognition of having completed the day.
