12th Mar Driver Development, P platers course, special needs & Skid Pan Night – the ART of DRIVING
22 October 2022 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm
Over 70% of the training a pilot receives is what to do in an emergency, yet with learner drivers, no one even teaches techniques in braking that could reduce their stopping distance by a full car length, or better still, be able to turn and avoid the crash, these skills are beneficial every time you get behind the wheel. However, learners cannot learn, let alone practice these skills and techniques on a public road.
That is where we come in – We introduce water, slippery conditions and then show the students how to apply these skills on the roads they are driving every day. We call it “The ART of DRIVING”
The “skills” taught by nearly all other driving schools are geared to passing the test for P Plates.
Life saving skills such as emergency braking, avoidance of other vehicles or objects whilst braking, rapid changes in direction, regaining control on wet roads – the list of emergency situations ALL drivers will encounter at some stage during their driving life, are not taught. The most often result is an accident, from a slight dent to fatalities.
As evidence of this, the road toll is at its highest of 20 years. Clearly the approach and emphasis of 1 hour lessons, to pass the driving test, is not showing benefits on the open road as a driver.
Come join us for the day and attain the knowledge and skills every driver should be equipped with, skills that will stick with you for life and possibly even save your life on the road one day.
