Due to traffic congestion, time and fuel costs, it makes sense to take the training to client. It is far more cost effective for an instructor to conduct training at client's premises. A boardroom or large office is normally suitable to conduct the theory session and thereafter, individual on-road training. Four to six week's later the instructor / examiner again conducts the on-road tests from client's premises.

(See attached 'fact sheet' and 'benefits sheet' regarding the Defensive Driving Course)

This defensive driving programme consists of three parts.

  • Theory (2 hours)
  • On-road training (1 hour)
  • On-road test (1 hour)

This is a group training session highlighting the modus operandi of hijackers and what can be done to minimise the risk of being hijacked. Duration, 1 hour.

This is a group training session highlighting the risks motorists face on the roads in South Africa where you are 11 times more likely to die than travelling on the roads in the USA. Also highlighted are the facts regarding EuroNcap testing of vehicles, which is an eye opener! Duration, 1 hour.

The above three programmes are a must for South Africans who wish to arrive at their destinations without an incident. In fact, the Defensive Driving Course should be called 'The what you should have been taught in the first place' course. It is full of common sense, economical driving tips as well as proven safety precautions.

In general, insurers regard 'Advanced Driving' certificates from motor manufacturer courses as 'High-Risk'. The reason for this, apart from their proven statistics, is that drivers are taught 'high-performance' skills in the controlled confines of a race track without the necessary mental skills being highlighted. The task of driving consists of 85-90% mental skills and only 10-15% physical skills. The license test and high performance driving fit into the physical skills category.

Most insurance companies offer benefits for a quality Defensive Driving Course.

Before handing the keys of an expensive asset to an unknown driver, have them assessed. The assessment takes an hour and a two-page report is issued after completion.

When the one-year or two-year certificate expire, a re-test is available, especially for those taking advantage of insurance discounts.

A similar programme to the Defensive Driving Course is available for the drivers of heavy-duty vehicles. The programme just takes longer for the on-road modules. Cost of the training is calculated after a needs analysis has been conducted.
