Austdrive - Youth Driver Training

Austdrive has been an extremely successful driving program for many schools in Australia, and the results speak for themselves.  Going beyond the scope of any learner training previously done, the Austdrive program training meets each young driver at their level and is designed to give young drivers a realistic view of their actual abilities (as opposed to what they think they can do). The course focuses on practical driver awareness, resulting in a true perspective; not the one their peers have given them. It is our core belief that prevention is better than cure, especially when lives are at risk.

Options include:

  • Virtual Road Safety Webinars delivered by an ADI Instructor

  • Online Self Paced Driver Training

  • Practical group programs

Austdrive 1

 

The theory is designed to be as interesting as possible, with the learning emphasis on fun and interactive participation.  It will also assist all learners with their current training.

 

The practical exercises are conducted on safe closed roads in student’s own vehicle (so they have familiarity and understanding of the cars they are driving).  This is not an “advanced driving course” – these have been found to be counter productive, especially for young drivers. Instead Austdrive makes all driving exercises relevant to an actual public road, not an enclosed enviroment. These courses are one full day in duration and are conducted with up to 20 students at a time.

 

Be sure to contact your local Road Safety Council as with many states Government Funding has been made available to support Youth Driver Education.

“This course is a huge positive toward better educating our kids on vehicle handling, road safety and staying alive. Thank-you for this great service to our youth and community at large”.


Parent – Sue Edwards, Yorketown

 

“Since completing this course, I feel I am more aware of my ability and can set safe limits while improving my ability to self assess and judge situations. Now I am more aware of things that are happening outside the vehicle, which allows me to quickly assess situations, and correct if need be, before they occur. If young drivers, like myself, can learn how to be a safe and more aware driver from the start, it is much better than trying to change bad habits some years later.”

“It was a fun day because the practical exercises were challenging and made you realise the impact of speed on braking, steering and handling a car. The presenters made the theory information humorous and interesting .”
