The course will provide you with skills to driver safer such as:

  • Managing your speed.
  • Following safely.
  • Correct Crash avoidance space.
  • Merging correctly.
  • Identifying hazards.
  • Making wiser road decisions.

The primary benefits of this course are:

  • Identify hazards on the road and minimise the risk of a crash.
  • How to be a better defensive driver.

  • Learning tactics of being a ‘low risk driver’.

  • The session contains videos and activities to keep the session engaging.

Module 2 – Practical

Now students have learned how to identify risks on the road in module 1, we’re going to put our new knowledge into action! We’ll be pairing two of you up at a time and taking turns driving with one another while having an instructor by your side.
The practical coaching session focuses on educating young learners about what they can do before getting behind the wheel – so that when they enter this new world of risky situations, it’s less scary.
