The day was really valuable and I am much more aware and proactive about driving safely. Dave was a great tutor, both for the practical exercises and the presentation. He was friendly and encouraging and made it easier to go outside my comfort zone. One slight niggle - at the beginning of the day we sat in our cars for at least 15 minutes until 8.45. I had no idea what was going on or how long we were going to be there. Apart from that it was all good.
I really appreciated the way that issues relating to gender were discussed and challenged by the classroom trainer. This is important because there is a lot of work that needs to be done unpacking gender stereotypes - especially when we are talking about safety and danger.
This course exceed my expectations. It was very enjoyable, informative and worthwhile. My son loved it. A big thank you to the team at Sandowne.
The instructors were really well informed and made the day enjoyable and very beneficial. I will be highly recommending this training with my family and friends. Hot tip: Throw another $10 on the price and include lunch.
was fun :)
Dave was absolutely a legend on the day. Even though i kept answering his questions he saw the funny side of it... keep it up.
Defensive driving course was perfect for my nephew currently on his ‘L’ plates and a great refresher course for me as his supervising driver. Learnt heaps and I’m sure he wants to do the next level course as well. Crew were great with fantastic energy and clearly skilled - thanks guys !
Highly recommend the Level 1 Defensive Driver course for any parent wanting to buy a valuable gift for their learner son/daughter driver. Parents also learn a few valuable lessons on the day as well as driving away proud of their child’s achievements.
It has been 12 years since I became a P-plater but I took a lot away from the experience and I am already noticing changes in my driving behaviours. I wish I had completed this course earlier! Well worth the money.
The course was great - simple information, presented in a fun and informative manner, and easy to put in to practice. Dave the instructor was great - knew his stuff, and had a good line in dry humour. Thanks Dave!
