    It was an amazing experience. I was able to conqueror my fears and felt totally confident in my driving abilities. The instructor was fantastic and the experience was fast-paced and exciting.

    The defensive driving course was a fantastic experience and taught me not only how to handle an emergency situation but modifeied my daily driving habits to have a more comfortable drive every day while being safer at the same time. As a person with 30 years driving "experience" I recommend this not only to Leaners and P platers but to all drivers on the road.

    I participated as an observer with a L plate driver (son). Wally was amazing and I learnt more from him about my car and driving than I have in the last 35 years. I believe this course should be mandatory for ALL young drivers. The theory was quite hard hitting ( texting, seatbelts and intersections) and really affected me in a positive way. However, your presenter left a little to be desired. He asked for participation from the class and when someone responded to a question, if not the correct answer he would belittle them. ( I copped a blast about eating tofu and washing my underpants- comments which I still cant understand). The result of this guys behaviour was that no-one was game to ask a question or participate in discussion- not good.

    Very informative and eye opening experience. My only qualm would be there was no written address on the information received, only longitude latitude coordinates which made the entrance difficult to find

    Thus should be an essential training course for all L plate learners

    I purchased this for my son on his L's invaluable learning and I believe every driver would benefit by doing this course. Thanks and keep up the passion guys!
