​Description

Throughout this Defensive Driver Course in Cairns, young drivers are strongly encouraged to develop better on-road defensive driving skills and more solid techniques, while more experienced drivers also benefit enormously from advanced driver training, including the correction of old habits and improving judgement and reactions.

Whether your choice of vehicle is a small sedan, a large family mover, a sports car or a four wheel drive, training in defensive driving is relevant, enjoyable, and will far improve your skills and ability levels.

This Defensive Driving Course is suited to all drivers of regular passenger vehicles, including four-wheel drives and light commercial vehicles. The mix of practical and theoretical components of this advanced driver training session deliver actual on-road safety skills that underpin proactive driving.

The practical driving component of our Defensive Driving Program is conducted on wet and dry roads at suburban speeds. It includes a variety of on road exercises including emergency braking, swerving and multiple direction changes.
