Benefits of attending a Safer Drivers Course

The course aims to provide learner drivers with driving strategies such as speed management, gap selection, hazard awareness and safe following distances so they are more prepared when they drive unsupervised on their provisional licences.

The course also aims to help learners identify situations that will put them at greater risk of a crash and consider strategies that will help avoid them.

Course Structure:

Module 1:  A three-hour group discussion on how to manage risks on the road.
Module 2:  A two-hour in-vehicle coaching session with another learner and a qualified driving instructor to develop low-risk driving strategies.

Earn credit hours

As well as becoming safer drivers, you can earn a bonus of 20 hours of log book credit once you complete the course, so you only need to finish 100 hours of supervised driving outside the course.

The course has been designed for a learner to attend once, and therefore, the 20 hours of bonus log book credit will only be deducted once.

If you also take 10 hours of professional driving lessons, you’ll receive a further 20 hours of credit on top of the 10 hours you drive during those lessons.
