Only the very best for your child
Think about this, you search out the very best hospital to give birth to your child, the most safest childcare so you get back to work, only the best primary school, move suburbs or cities to get them into the best high school Music lessons from a career musician, all the best safety gear for their sporting.
But then when it comes to learning to drive we say ‘she’ll be right’ and just pick the cheapest and dodgiest driver trainer who has done just a 3 day course in business management and is now tooting outside your house ready for the next 1 hour of driving (not a lesson, just driving time, there is a difference).
BUT, here are a few FACTS that you MUST know before you do anything.
We don’t realise how complex driving is until we have to teach someone and they dont get it. Your Brake pedal doesn’t work, there is no steering and they just wont listen. there are cars, people, and things that just wont get out of the way. TD takes care of this, leading them through a series of learning outcomes, and then providing you the parent with the support to guide you, as we prepare them. There are a number of things going on here, for instance, what happened to your little angel and since when did they get ‘posessed’. They think they are legends, you are rediscovering religion and it is like you are speaking different languages. Essentially the challenges comes down to how we process threats and Hazard information,
it works perfectly well in our natural environment, walking and running, yet when we put them behind the wheel of a car, it is now the exact opposite of what is required. This creates stress, this collapses their vision, then suddenly, it is happening to fast, to late and they cannot even process what you are saying. The Total Driver process is your best friend, we pioneered the hard stuff, and support you to practice, no yelling, no stress, just learning the right way from the beginning, from professionals who understand what driver training actually is. Simple answer, No. we say this as no one has prepared you. it is not what you know that is the challenge, it is everything that you haven’t been told. So much has been learnt since you got your licence. Back then, cars were horribly engineered, they scared us into slowing down, the environment was relaxed, open and their was no such thing as congestion or road rage. Driving was fun. Now days, everything is pressured, intense, plus the expectation is now so high, In addition, all the information our scary vehicles gave to slow us down, is now isolated (rattles and knocks felt through te wheel in old cars), so the driver feels invicible, bullet proof. “If you want to get what you’ve always had, do what you’ve always done”.
and 75% of the people in youngcare, are under 25 and there through road trauma. Yet none of these people hopped into the car to crash and most of these people were considered normal, happy, adjusted and responsible. So where and why does it go wrong
