We teach these skills through a series of planned driving exercises, supplemented by relatively brief classroom sessions.

Drivers learn the practical skills of braking and steering on loose surfaces as well as the importance of appropriate speed selection.

This one day program assists drivers to understand the adjustments required for safe motoring. The program is a mixture of theory and practical sessions concentrating on areas such as:

  • Assessing surfaces and terrain
  • Detecting hazards
  • Skid prevention
  • Importance of tyres and pressures
  • Preparing the vehicle
  • All relative vehicle checks (daily, weekly and monthly)

The program also allows drivers to analyse varying road situations by way of Workbook and PowerPoint photo display.
