Safer Drivers Course St Mary's

 

What is Safer Drivers Course St Marys

The safer drivers course is a combined theoretical and practical driving course for learner drivers. Specifically designed to teach safe driving habits to learner drivers aged under 25 years old. Developed by the Roads & Maritime Services this course is considered the best in the country. 

Module 1: Is a three hour group discussion led by a trained facilitator. At the conclusion of this module participants will:

  • Understand that they are at the highest risk of crashing when they first get their P's
  • Understand how to reduce the risk of crashing by adopting safe driving behaviours
  • Understand and build resilience to the impact that peer influence and passenger behaviour can have on cash risks
  • develop strategies to reduce risks associated with motor vehicle accidents

Module 2: Is a two hour in car coaching session with a qualified driving instructor from the Australian Driver Training Association. You will learn how to apply low risk driving techniques in real life situations including

  • Safe following distances
  • Gap selection
  • Speed management
  • Crash Avoidance Spaces
  • Blind Spots

Whilst we will endeavour to place each student in a car of their preferred transmission type, it is a Roads & Maritime Services condition that participants be paired up into groups of two.

Note: It may be necessary for some manual drivers to undertake this part of the course in an automatic vehicle.
