    All good

    Michael K   4 out of 5

    Instructors were good but just a little bit wordy during intros (about themselves) and during the morning theory. Class size a little bit too large to get the most out of the prac sessions, (long wait between runs). Overall a very well run & professional experience.

    Lyndon S   4 out of 5

    Really enjoyed the day and learnt a few things about my car like it doesnt have ABS Brakes and also what my car can and cant do as well as visialising everything that happens around me thanks heaps

    Mathew M   5 out of 5

    I would strongly recommend anyone to do this driving course. My 18 year old learner got heaps out of it and i took away heaps of information myself.

    Nicol C   5 out of 5

    The professionalism of the people on the day was excellent. Everyone should do the defensive driving course for yourself and your family.

    Cathie   4 out of 5

    The course met all my expectations and Pete and Wally were excellent instructors. Not only were they informative with a wealth of knowledge and experience, their presentation both with theory and practice was so much fun. Thank you for a great day. My driving confidence has certainly increased.?

    The practical aspects were fabulous I really extended myself and my car . The theory sessions were very instructor oriented . They need to be brought into modern educational practice . Lecturing adults with many years of experience is not the best method to impart knowledge

    The information provided from Adrenalin website was sufficient that I did not need to contact any Adrenalin customer service staff, thus I have selected Neutral for those answers
