We aim to educate drivers to a standard that gives them the ability, to be both proactive and defensive driver.  Utilising the ACT Government Log Book and Competency-Based Training System we teach and assess drivers for their Provisional licence.  We also can assist NSW drivers in preparing for the government driving test.  Our training is more comprehensive than the minimum standard required. Our training covers both practical skills to be a safe driver, more importantly the correct attitude for driving on Australian roads and conditions.
