Ever heard the phrase, “you can be the best driver in the world, but it is the other drivers that will let you down”. No statement could be more true. The term defensive driving conjures up the image of drivers doing skids, sliding and driving through safety cones to improve their skills. In fact, that is not defensive driving at all. Track days show you what to do when something goes wrong. Southern Cross Advanced Driving would prefer to show you how NOT to get in a dangerous situation in the first place. We focus on prevention skills and use the term “Low Risk”.
Low Risk driving skills are developed alongside vehicle operation in our learner courses as standard. However if you were not lucky enough to develop your learner driving skills through Southern Cross Advanced Driving, we introduce you to the Always Alert, Always Arrive (AAAA) Low Risk driving course. An on-road course, with real hazards and real situations designed specifically for the under 25's.
