This full day Defensive Driving Queensland Level 1 course is perfect for mastering the skills you need on the road and taking your driving to the next level. You'll work with professional coaches on a mix of theoretical and practical exercises that will develop the crucial road safety skills that underpin proactive driving.

Young drivers are strongly encouraged to develop better on-road defensive driving skills and more solid techniques, but more experienced drivers also benefit enormously from advanced driver training, including the correction of old habits and improving judgement and reactions.

They are specially designed to educate drivers of the risks associated with driving, and skills needed to avoid accidents. The courses encourage proactive driving aimed at improving community road safety.
