Should Learner Drivers do a Defensive Driving Course in Port Macquarie?

In the first six (6) months of getting their P’s and driving solo, drivers aged between 17 and 25 are unfortunately at the highest risk of crashing. It doesn't mean they're experienced drivers after pass the driving test. It just means they were able to meet the driving test standards and abide by the road rules for the duration of the driving test. Experience only comes from time, repetition and on-going driving.

The Learn Drive Survive SDC teach safe driving techniques that help to develop low-risk driving choices. All learner drivers of the SDC will learn simple yet effective safer driving skills. They will be taught strategies to become safer drivers and will learn how to reduce and manage everyday distractions and unnecessary risk taking.

The Safer Drivers Course is available to learner drivers who have a minimum of 50 actual hours driving experience. Upon completion of Module 1 and 2, learners will gain 20 bonus hours in their Logbook. The course aims to teach safe driver behaviour and to develop low-risk driving choices. Learners will be taught defensive driving techniques for on-going practice and skills development. Upon completion of the Safer Drivers Course with Learn Drive Survive, learners will gain the knowledge and a better understanding of low-risk driving and how to make better choices when driving.

In accordance with Transport for NSW requirements, the course can only permit a maximum of twelve (12) students. This is to ensure learners don’t feel over-whelmed and can comfortably educate themselves about the importance of road safety.
