Driver Improvement Workshops

These workshops are designed to promote a driver safety culture in organisations. They compliment practical driver training programs such as Defensive Driving Levels 1 and 2 and align with in-house OH&S management systems and staff training.

All modules are conducted over a half day (3-4 hours duration) and use lectures/discussions and small group exercises, questionnaires and group activities to analyse real driving situations.
