Safer Drivers Course

Why is proactive safe driving important, especially for new drivers? Since the statistics are overwhelming. Nearly 20% of NSW roadway fatalities in 2016 were young drivers aged 17-25. We’re here to make sure that you are equipped with effective and useful skills to keep yourself safe on the road. Because staying alive is definitely awesome.

The Safer Drivers Course is carefully tailored for young learners. This two-module course is packed with information about the risks that come with driving and how to mitigate them. The things you’ll learn from this class will be immediately useful in everyday situations. You won’t learn how to operate a motor vehicle here, this course is all about being able to immediately recognise a safety-compromising situation and minimise the risk to your personal safety on the road.

At the end of this course, you will learn to:

  • Recognise how driver behaviour can increase the risk of a crash
  • Lower the risks of these behaviours
  • Resist the impacts of peer influence, passenger behaviour and other every day distractions
  • Build and implement strategies to combat typical lifestyle pressures and high-risk behaviour
  • Practice these new habits every day so they become tools for a lifetime of driving

Module One

Module One is a 3 hour group discussion which covers how to identify hazards, high risk behaviour, and ways to link your actions to outcomes. Engage with your peers, present your ideas and get feedback on ways to create a new skillset.

 

Module Two

Module Two is a practical coaching session that takes the skills identified in Module One and puts them into practice. Guided by a professional driving Instructor, you will learn to recognise hands-on which risks to avoid and how to mitigate the rest.

**Note: The RMS requires students to be paired up for the Module Two In Car Coaching. We endeavour to place all learners in their preferred transmission type, however some manual learners may be required to undertake this part of the course in an automatic vehicle, depending on student numbers and instructor availability.
