For over 50 years Murcotts has been “Helping Drivers to think smarter, stay out of trouble, and get home safely”. Today, the safety and well-being of both our clients and our staff has taken a new turn.
Given the global outbreak of the Corona Virus and the direction of world governments to combat this disease, Murcotts have made the decision to suspend our programs for an initial period between March 24 until May 4 2020. We will continue to monitor this situation on a daily basis and review our suspension dates accordingly.
All Murcotts administration staff including management, accounts and our coordination team are working remotely and remain available via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 1300 555 576, leave a message, and we will return your call promptly.
We wish you, your family and work colleagues the very best of health at this time. Our slogan of “Look Up and Stay Back” has taken on another meaning for the time being.

What people say about us
"600 crashes a year costing an average of $2,500 a time", said a fleet executive with the giant Orica chemicals and explosives group.
"We have got that down to 380 crashes costing an average of $1,100."
That's a reduction from $1.5 million to just over $400,000 a year.
"Our fleet of 30 vehicles was averaging two major accidents a year and two or three minor ones. Insurance rates were skyrocketing.
"Over the next five years (after the course) the fleet did not have one serious accident and the rate of minor accidents reduced to less than one per year average.
"Our insurance premiums ... dropped substantially recovering the cost of the training in the first full year. The real saving was the lack of business disruption and anguish caused by the accidents."
This has been the most cost-effective road safety program we've seen", says Rob Cook of the Brotherhood of St Laurence. The Brotherhood used Jim Murcott's Advanced Driving Centre and says it was surprised by the drop in its fleet costs. 'At fault' damage incidents have reduced from an average of 14.5 to 4.0 and total vehicle insurance was reduced from an average of $40,446 to $30,225.
Driver-at-fault crash rates reduced from 70% to 29% vehicle damage (average per incident) down from $1,750 to $330
Your course is right on the mark in terms of driver awareness and training.
