Who is this course for?

Defensive driving is about anticipating road and traffic hazards and responding ahead of time so that you can protect yourself and others from dangerous and unexpected driving situations. It is the best way to avoid accidents and become a smarter driver. When taught correctly, the goal of defensive driving is to be aware of potential threats and be prepared to deal with them before they become a problem. Our defensive driver course is about teaching you to drive pro-actively not re-actively!

Our Safe Driver Program is suitable for:

  • Any person who has been ordered, or voluntarily undertakes a defensive driver course prior to an appearance at a Magistrates court.
  • Any learner, probationary, or fully licenced driver wanting to improve their on-road safety by reducing their crash risk.
  • Any learner, probationary, or fully licenced driver wanting to reduce their vehicle running costs, making their driving cheaper!

On successful completion, you may be issued with a Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment, a Certificate of Driving Competence and a detailed individual report containing the driving competencies achieved throughout your course.

Why is this course the best course for me?

Many defensive driver courses throughout Australia are conducted by small business 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). As an RTO we have an obligation to adhere to the Standards for RTO’s including quality assurance. All our professionally qualified instructors hold a current vocational education and training teaching certification and complete professional development activities.
