Defensive Driving Course, Melbourne VIC


For: 1 Person Location: Melbourne Code: PSSV54


Learn how to drive safely in just about any vehicle with our Defensive Driving Course at Melbourne’s Sandown Raceway in Springvale. You’ll be driving your own car, so you are familiar with the vehicle from the very beginning. We’ll have you driving on wet roads, practicing emergency braking, undertaking multiple direction changes and swerving.

There is of course a theoretical aspect to this course and this is where we teach you how to understand drivers attitudes, motivations, and the risk taking behaviour that can affect not only the safety of the driver but also other road users. We teach you about tyre pressure, tyre condition and the effects poor tyres have on your car’s performance.
