Driver Training - Newcastle, NSW

“A very worthwhile training day. A real eye opener of what our vehicles can do.”

“I have attended four defensive driving courses to date and this is by far the best. Not only did we get to physically attempt braking, manoeuvring and dealing with 4WD scenarios but these were explained in depth.”
