Advanced driving courses teach you important skills for driving (Defensive Driving Course)
Advanced driving courses teach you important skills for driving.
Advanced driving courses are designed to help you identify and avoid or handle potential hazards you may encounter while driving.
They teach skills that can help reduce the likelihood of you being involved in a crash, such as eye scanning while driving, hazard detection and risk management.
Passing an advanced driving course can:
- reduce the minimum age for a full driver licence (from 18 years to 17½ years), and
- reduce the time you need to stay on a restricted licence (by either three or six months depending on your age).
You can do an approved driving course once you have got your learner or restricted driver licence.
