ABOUT THIS COURSE

Delivered at one of Australia’s best driver training and testing facilities, this truly unique driving experience is certainly a cut above the rest. When nothing but the best will do, this one-day group course contains a mix of theory and practical sessions and only 25 minutes from the Melbourne CBD! 

Chances are, you have landed here looking for a defensive drive course for yourself or for your team. We know that searching through endless websites can be confusing and stressful, and unfortunately, choosing the wrong defensive drive course choice can raise a person’s crash risk instead of reducing it.

Our one-day defensive driving course offers unique driving experiences and insights in driver psychology by simulating road conditions such as water-logged roads, ice-road simulation, low grip roads, water crossings, gradient hill climbs and descents, moguls, gravel roads, and high-speed zones. These are only some of the environments and simulations you will get to experience as we deliver training beyond compare.

Nowhere else, and no one else can provide a course like this just 10 kilometres from the city. No matter what you or your workforce drives, we utilise the facility’s exceptional capabilities to maximise your training opportunity.

This course is suitable for:

  • Corporate groups looking to increase the road safety outcomes for their workforce and fleet of vehicles or those looking to reduce their insurance liability. 
  • Any learner, probationary, or fully licenced driver wanting to change their driving behaviour so they can improve their on-road safety.
  • Any learner, probationary, or fully licenced driver wanting to reduce their vehicle running costs, making their driving cheaper!
  • Any person who has been ordered by a court of law, or any person who decides to voluntarily undertake a defensive driver course before making an appearance at a Magistrates court or legal process.

Upon successful completion, you may be issued a certificate of driving competence, assessment records, and a detailed individual report containing the driving competencies achieved throughout your course.

COURSES ARE CONDUCTED EVERY MONTH, AND ON REQUEST FOR CORPORATE GROUPS.

Did you know!

No matter how ambitious your life goals are, the moment you are involved in a serious road trauma crash, your life will never be the same.  Studies have proven people involved in serious road trauma crashes are more susceptible to loss of employment. On average, these people remain unemployed for 12 months longer, and when they finally do return to work, they return to work on reduced wages, reduced job functions and experience a life-long reduction in income.

Reducing your chance of traffic fines, maintaining your demerit points and enjoying reduced vehicle operating costs make a lot of financial sense. Learning proven, proactive driving systems and techniques that reduce your chance of a crash is a sensible investment in yourself or in a loved one. For Melbourne’s top defensive driving course, get in touch with Intelligent Training Solutions.

CANCELLATION POLICY

We have a general set of terms and conditions, which can be viewed here: ENROLMENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

To summarise our cancellation and refund terms and conditions, in short, We are unable to refund monies for students who do not turn up for class. Course fees will not be refunded for cancellations received within eight working days of your course commencement date. The reason for this is that Intelligent Training Solutions has already secured the required trainers, training vehicles, venue, course resources and printed materials for your attendance on the course; therefore, your enrolment has been taken into account during this preparation stage so course fees WILL NOT be refunded.

Any student who enrols in a course less than eight days from the proposed course commencement date will not receive a refund in accordance with Clause 4.3.

PLEASE decide carefully when enrolling in a course with less than eight days between your enrolment and the commencement of the course. Intelligent Training Solutions does not have a cooling-off period for this course. Once your enrolment is processed, all payments made are non-refundable.

NOTE: WITHDRAWING FROM THE COURSE AT THIS STAGE WILL RESULT IN A VACANT POSITION WITHIN THE COURSE AND WILL DEPRIVE INTELLIGENT TRAINING SOLUTIONS AND THE COURSE OF THE REVENUE IT WOULD PROVIDE.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions on this course; please click on any questions below to expand the content. 

WHY IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR ME?

Driven by research and our unique industry experience, your course will include:

  • The emerging importance of driver psychology
  • The latest information on driver distraction
  • The connection of ECO driving and reduced crash rates
  • The latest information on fatigue management
  • Road rule updates
  • Defensive and best practice driving strategies

 

Governed by quality outcomes and the safety of our students.  You will benefit from our 1-to-1 in-vehicle trainer-to-student ratio.  It will be just you and your trainer.  Your training will be safer and more effective because your trainer will be sitting beside you!

Many traditionally delivered defensive driving courses have one trainer, on a whistle, 50 meters down the road and you, on your own, in a conga line of cars, with more time spent sitting and waiting for your short attempt at a driving exercise.  That approach is not associated with best practice education.

WHAT MAKES INTELLIGENT TRAINING SOLUTIONS DIFFERENT?

Many defensive driving schools throughout Australia are conducted by small businesses or driving schools that provide you with a value-added service. Their claim that an on-road course is better than an off-road course or vice versa is generally based on their business infrastructure, skills, knowledge, and abilities. The fact is that both types of courses, on-road and off-road, have an educational value and the determination on which course is right for you depends on your circumstances and individual requirements.

With over 25 years in the road transport driver training industry, Intelligent Training Solutions is one of the few course providers that is accredited as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). All our professionally qualified instructors all hold a current vocational education and training/teaching qualification as well as specific Certificate IV in Transport & Logistics (Road Transport) driver trainer qualifications. Best of all, we deliver defensive driver courses to suit all needs ranging from one-on-one (on-road) courses to traditional on-track courses.
