Don’t let their first time be by accident.

“It is remarkable that we generally throw a few of the basics at Novice Drivers and then let them go on to perhaps discover the rest for themselves..

Then when of course they get it wrong, we throw the book at them for making a mistake” Frank Gardner OAM

As a former professional pilot and avid motorsport enthusiast, I, like most motorists recognise that we are doing a great disservice in how we prepare our young drivers, and they are paying for it with their lives. It is costing our families emotionally and our economy financially. Quite simply, there has to be a better way. We need a more thorough approach, similar to the standards employed in every other form of industry, commerce and education. The program for pilots is a great example.

Learn Practical Skills

Practically orientated, they are beneficial every time you get behind the wheel. The “skills” taught by nearly all other driving schools are geared to passing the test for P Plates. Life saving skills such as emergency braking, avoidance of other vehicles or objects whilst braking, rapid changes in direction, regaining control on wet roads – the list of emergency situations ALL drivers will encounter at some stage during their driving life, are not taught. The most often result is an accident, from a slight dent to fatalities.

“There is no such thing as bad cars, bad roads or bad conditions – only bad drivers who do not understand how to cope with existing conditions”. Frank Gardner

No other form of education, allows the student to become the teacher, the supervisor to be self-appointed, based on relationship alone and the assessment process to have a 3000% increase in crashes.

Yet this is how people teach our teens how to drive, doing everything but actually teaching “The ART of DRIVING”
