Defensive Driving Course

Defensive Driving Course


At Instinctive Driving we believe there is a gap in driver education after successful completion to gain your P Plate licence and then driving on your own or with friends in the open roads of South Australia.

We have developed a 1-day course teaching drivers the dangers and the impact of speed in their own vehicle.  You will learn advanced driving skills while driving at legal speeds on the road. It does not take much to lose control of a vehicle and this course gives you the opportunity to learn these lessons in a safe and controlled environment.

Our team of experienced instructors provide lessons in theory and practical knowledge. Our courses are not just for young drivers, but also for parents and mature drivers.

This course is a full day event  and is suitable for any driver aged 16 to 80 (P-plate drivers a specialty and L-plate drivers with a minimum of 50 hours) and suitable to most cars including four wheel drives and light commercial vehicles.
