    The defensive driver course was well run and enjoyable. I believe it should be compulsory for all drivers, especially new drivers, to complete this course, then repeat it every 10 years.

    Richard B   4 out of 5

    All the trainers if i can call them that were really good and knowledgeable about everything to do with cars and how to be safe while driving

    Russell M   5 out of 5

    I think this should be a mandatory course for all L or P plate drivers. The course was informative and Peter was a fantastic communicator and an amazing instructor.

    Leanne M   4 out of 5

    The group size on the day was too large so everything took too long. Everything else was excellent.

    Great course and information and instructors! I was expecting to be bored to death, feeling like I was stuck in traffic all day, but instead I had a lot of fun and learned some skills that could well save my life some day.
