Frequently Asked Questions
Learning to drive is one of the most complex activities we ever undertake, but it is also the most rewarding. It is the gateway to careers, adventure, travel, and family.
If it was easy, you would not need us, the fact that 1/3rd will crash within months of getting their licence, shows the issues is more than just passing the driving test.
The challenge for parents who have to complete the 100 hours of supervised driving, is who prepares you? As we do it every day, we are numb to it, so how do you know what to teach, when to teach and how to teach. Get it wrong, the statistics are telling, a 3000% increase in crashes post licence
That is where and how Total Driver makes the difference
Not only do we understand the art of driving. We support you, in your journey to teach driving, we combine adventure, fun and experience so they are prepared. No one else can offer the Total Driver difference
Everything we want to do, is the exact opposite of what we need to do and that is the conflict. Think of it like walking down a footpath and the concrete is damaged, so we look down at the threat, we look for a way past the threat and we don't stop looking at it until we are safe.
What we really did was collapse our big picture peripheral vision, sacrifice our tunnel vision and revert to our close (reading) vision. Perfect for our natural environment.
Now in a car, we introduce speed, and our brain cannot process speed. This is why when you are doing 100kph and you slow down to 60kph, it feels so slow you want to walk, then sixty feels normal.
Driver training is taking the operating system out of a PC and putting it into a MAC, so it works, it doesn't crash.
That is the Total Driver difference. ,
Ten things every parent with learner drivers needs to know
This is so important for every parent with learner drivers. See it is what you are not being told that is the challenge. In your role as a supervised driver, you have to help them complete 100 + hours of supervised driving..... but who prepares you? That is where Total Driver supports you, as we prepare themPosted by Total Driver Australia on Monday, 22 May 2017
Invest in their driving, it is cheaper than the loss.
Experience is always expensive. It is the only thing which cannot be gained without paying the price.Driving lessons should be much more than just driving around for an hour. Getting your licence needs to be about more than just passing the test. You don't take shortcuts with any other form of their life preparation, school, education, sports, dance etc. So a Training program in driving is not about cost, it is an investment.Posted by Total Driver Australia on Monday, 10 July 2017
