    Our experience with Driver Dynamics was sensational. I would highly recommend this course to any L or P plate driver. It was a really fun day with loads of handy tips to keep you alive on the road.

    Zach   5 out of 5

    Excellent investment of time! My L-Plater and I both learned so much and she gained alot more confidence as the day went on. I'm sure it will make her a safer and more informed driver than she otherwise would have been.

    It was a terrific experience

    David   5 out of 5

    I brought along my son on L Plates and the day exceeded our expectations. He will be doing the Level 2 in the near future. As I mentioned on the day the Level 1 programme should be compulsory in order to get your P's

    Excellent day, my driving did improve from when I started in the morning as my awareness and confidence grew with the tuition provided. I would recommend this to all road users as a bare minimum. Just found that some of the classroom content was a bit long winded with statistics maybe condense the content. Overall an excellent day!

    I think Peter was a fantastic presenter and instructor. Very honest down to earth guy. I booked my son in as he is a Learner Driver but honestly even I got a few tips out of the day. Thank you.
