Safer Driving Academy

Learning to 'drive safely' requires physical skills, awareness and the ability to communicate a defensive driving attitude with other road users.

Ian Luff Motivation Australia Pty Ltd (Est. 1983) is Australia's pioneering post licence driver training academy. The principal, Ian Luff helped kick start what has been referred to as the advanced and defensive driver training industry back in 1972.

Today’s motor vehicles see’s 5 star safety as the benchmark. Learning best practices, linking advanced safety technology with a complicated and busy driving environment can be challenging.

This is where the NSW Government has addressed the needs for improved learning by introducing the 'Safer Drivers Course.' Once 50 logbook hours are completed, any learner can book into the 'Safer Drivers Course.'

The course available from July 1, 2013, will involve theoretical and practical coaching. It also teaches learner drivers about gauging road conditions, seeing issues that could affect them and making safe decisions.


Course Structure

This program consists of two module's, the first module is a three hour classroom session conducted with up to 12 participants where awareness scenario's are discussed along with hazard perception and anticipation methods. Module 2 is a two hour on road driving session shared with another learner driver, using our brand new Hyundai i20 vehicle's our qualified instructors guide the pair through elements of module 1 in real time, allowing both attendees time to observe and reflect on the key messages. Both modules do not need to be completed on the same day.

The course deals with different road conditions, understanding factors beyond a drivers control and also helps identify risks on the road.

 

NSW Roads Minster Duncan Gay


safer drivers course carTo enrol in the course learner drivers must have 50 hours completed in their logbook. Currently learner drivers have to do 120 supervised hours. Under this NSW Government supported initiative, young drivers have the option of reducing their supervised driving hours from 120 to 100. Combined with just 10 hours tuition with a learner driver instructor this reduces your minimum hours down to just 80.

The Ian Luff 'Safer Driving Academy' is accredited by RMS (Roads & Maritime Services) to conduct the Safer Drivers Course.
