We teach Proactive Driving to help you develop Hazard Perception and collision avoidance skills:

This is underpinned by continual cognitive recognition of risk through a simple cycle of:


  • What do I SEE? (Observation, System of Vehicle Control, scanning) Identify any possible dangers or risk
  • What do I THINK could happen? (Cognition/timely risk identification) Assess the level of risk and predict what may happen
  • What can I DO to avoid or reduce the risk? (action, management of identified risk) Respond to the hazard to avoid or deal with it

We provide training courses, lesson packages and single lessons that deliver:

  1. Flexibility to your situation
  2. Defined learning outcomes, through a variety of training courses and program
  3. Tools and resources that support ongoing learning – even when the drive is over
  4. We have comprehensive tools, information and resources – that are easy to

We use training and coaching methods that are industry best practice – and actually, work

Come drive with trainers that will always care about:

  • You, and your driving goals
  • Your safety and enjoyment
  • Your desire to learn a fantastic life skill
  • Your need to drive

We use 4 key learning styles to help you develop safe driving skills:

  1. Read / Write training Programs that are interactive and effective
  2. Visual – Training aids that provide great learning examples
  3. Verbal – a training style that engaging and patient
  4. Kinesthetic – Driving. Our clients drive, with a clear purpose, and with skill goals established

We incorporates a Long, Wide and Deep learning experience, which demonstrates the benefits of lots of experience, with lots of variation (e.g. distractions, extra passengers, and driving at night or in wet weather).Learners will see how the ability to self-supervise, self instruct and self-asses can have a positive impact on their own safety and help make them P-plate ready.

We endeavour to mitigate the typical risky P-plate behaviour, by coaching the risk vs reward approach. As learner driver experiences progresses, gradually their confidence can exceed their competence. The more driving in varied situations will help giving a holistic approach to driving.

Not only will we support and guide your training to help you to obtain a licence and pass the VicRoads drive test, We also focus on the Driving Habits to make you safer on the road.
