Welcome to The Performance Driving Centre – Australia’s leading Advanced Driver Training Facility

Based on the Gold Coast, the Performance Driving Centre caters for
drivers of all ages and experience levels – from pre-license
teenagers through to CAMS race license testing.

The first step towards driver safety is learning the best driving
techniques and attitudes. The statistics relating to road trauma in
Australia, but especially Queensland is alarming:

  • 100 fatalities per year on Queensland roads are young
  • drivers
  • 80% of those are male
  • 2000 young Queenslanders are hospitalised as a result of injury in
  • road accidents
  • 75% of accidents in Queensland are caused by young
  • drivers

A course at the Performance Driving Centre can arm you with the
skills to assist in avoiding accidents, the associated repair bills
and insurance premiums.

The time and money taken to complete an Advanced Driver Training
Course is a small investment to develop what could save your life,
your family’s lives or the lives of others.
