Learn2drive proactively, rather than reactively.

We have a passion to train and re-educate drivers to be Proactive on our roads.  Too many drivers have been taught to drive reactively and apply poor attitudes and decision making. 

This can lead to crashs occurring that were avoidable, road rage, loss of licence and vehicle damage.

Perth & WA drivers are often quoted to be the worst in Australia – let’s do something about it!

Your ride, your life….take control!

Proactive Driver Training (Theory)

What mind set and attitude do you have when you get into your car?

How much can your attitude impact on your driving?

You have a duty of care to protect yourself and other road users! If you drive company vehicles or are a professional driver you have a duty to your employer as well.

A proactive driver thinks and reacts differently to situations unfolding as they drive. Less crashs result and vehicles are not required to be out of commission for repairs resulting in better productivity. We see work forces adopt this thinking with considerable benefits to the bottom line in reduced expenditure, less downtime, less injury, less sick leave, lower insurance premiums, less public complaints and on it flows.

As an individual or employer there are significant benefits in educating your drivers to drive proactively! Call us today to discuss!

Trailer & Caravan Handling Course (Towing, Reversing, etc)

Towing and reversing trailers and vans is an underrated skill.

Check some facts and techniques on correct loading, towing and driving an articulated vehicle. Bear in mind when towing your vehicle can be 2-3 times longer and heavier than your regular vehicle, making handling, braking and all other driving conditions completely different.

Many Australians load up a van or trailer and head off for the road trip of a lifetime. The last thing you want is to make an avoidable loading, driving or reversing error and stuff up your dream holiday.

Minibus or Van – competency & handling

We often train specialist workers to handle larger vehicles that classify as a standard licence, such as small trucks, minibuses. These vehicles are significantly taller, wider, heavier, longer and often rely solely on side mirrors only for rearward vision.

Loading can also be specialised, whether it is children, people with wheelchairs, people in poor health , or a sensitive equipment.

For drivers who are unfamiliar with these larger vehicles, driving with confidence can be achieved in a relative short training program concentrating on current driver skill/experience levels, the specifics of the vehicle type/purpose and it’s relative dynamics.
