Defensive Driving


This is a non-accredited course and is therefore not nationally recognised.


Our Defensive Driving Course prepares the driver for the many challenges and risks faced on public roads. It is no longer adequate to just be a defensive driver.  As cars and trucks become more powerful and traffic levels become increasingly congested, today’s driver needs to be able to actively identify and manage the many risks they face while driving and reduce the risk of a collision. Whether you have just obtained your licence and are adjusting to being on the road for the first time, or you are simply looking for a refresher, your whole approach to driving will benefit from this course.

For company or fleet drivers, this course will help to minimise exposure to the risks of driving while on the job. Road crashes are one of the most common causes of work-related deaths and injuries in Australia. Preparing commercial drivers for the risks faced at the workplace while driving is an important part of any WH&S strategy. Our one (1) day Defensive Driving Course is only the start of a holistic driver training program.
