A practical low risk defensive driving course for all adult drivers. This course introduces drivers to the survival techniques which are not part of the licensing system. Theoretical explanations are reinforced by practical exercises carried out on Roadcraft’s purpose-built training circuit. On completion of this course participants will be armed with the tools to be a much safer and consciously aware driver, as well as having a heightened awareness of what can be done to maximise safety and minimise risk on the roads.
