A parent's worst nightmare is when their child is learning to drive. Learning driving skills is usually taught by parents who most probably learnt from their own parents too. Defensive driving principles are often overlooked with this process, through a lack of knowledge or experience in this field.
In no time your loved one obtains a provisional driver's licence and is allowed freedom to drive unsupervised anywhere with passengers and in all kinds of adverse conditions. Provisional drivers are still in the learning phase and lack the experience required to remain safe at all times. This is why novice drivers (17-25 years) are hopelessly overrepresented in motor vehicle accidents and road trauma. In-fact accident injury rates of red p plate drivers jump by 800% over that of learner drivers.
This doesn't have to be the outcome, we can help them to be safer drivers through knowledge, education and hands-on practical experience.
Combined with the Drive to Survive defensive driver training program, P-Plate drivers are given specific information that is age appropriate and aimed at their experience level. Taking into consideration the attendee's confidence level we can either reduce overconfidence or build the confidence as required, both of these represent a dangerous driving mindset.
With a combination of theory backed up by hands-on driver training, attendees will learn defensive driving disciplines in a safe controlled environment. Soft plastic traffic cones simulate real life challenges helping novice drivers to develop a defensive mindset, attitude, and awareness. The program is relevant to the vehicle you drive, our expert personal trainers are on hand to demonstrate and coach you through each activity. The knowledge and skills gained will one day save your life.

What others have to say
Mum and Dad gave me a gift voucher and I thought I didn't need it. Having done the course I now know how much I did not know. This has changed the way I think about driving. This course should be made compulsory. I thought I could drive a car ok but after attending the Drive to Survive course it has opened my eyes.
Thanks to the instructors for the wake up talk, I now see things differently.
