Our training course has been designed to provide a
thorough understanding of the theoretical and
practical art of safe and defensive driving

At Pro Drive Safe we adhere to the basic formula of an instructor to a student ratio of a minimum 2 and a maximum 4 participants. This ratio is preferred as it provides personal attention and sufficient time for all participants to reach pre determined minimum levels of expertise in the practical competencies exercises. However if your numbers are fewer than two, I can include you in with others in a course.

Your company vehicle/s will be required or otherwise a hire vehicle can be arranged.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea is provided.
