Do Queensland's best Defensive Driving Day with serious professionals. Get fascinating insights into defensive driving, and understand your car and the variables of the road. On a proper skid pan, you'll learn everything from emergency lane changes to emergency braking and cornering.
The aim of this first-level course is to provide post-licence driver training to raise awareness, skill levels and assess attitude and the potential dangers of the road. You'll mix theoretical and practical driving sessions conducted at normal road speeds in your own vehicle. Life-saving skills that everyone should know will be covered in a purpose-built training facility. A friendly theory session will explain what 'defensive' driving is all about, and identify the most important principles.
Following an explanation of the correct braking techniques we will put you to the test in a various practical emergency braking situations on a variety of wet surfaces. After a lunch break (BYO), the afternoon session will cover vehicle dynamics and emergency braking and cornering.. For the afternoon a combination of exercises will include vehicle balance and smoothness, and basic emergency braking and cornering. A final short lecture will recap the day, re-assess the driver’s attitude before certificates and course notes are handed out as recognition of having completed the day.
Theoretical subjects covered will include:
Practical exercises will be conducted in:
Note: Learner drivers must have a Licenced Driver with them during the practical components.
There will only be up to ten people per instructor.

Enclosed footwear, appropriate for driving, should be worn. Much of this course is conducted outdoors, so dress for the weather, including sunscreen and hats.
This experience takes place at Lakeside Park Kurwongbah, 30 minutes north of Brisbane.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
