DriveSafe Course

1DriveSafe Course

The Performance Driving Centre’s DriveSafe Course is the perfect starting point for those inexperienced with driving or those looking to expand their driving ability.

This program is the entry level advanced driver training program offered by the Performance Driving Centre and is also the basis of our Junior DriveSafe programs, which introduce pre-license, learners and P-Plated drivers to driver training.

Being a half day program, it allows participants to complete a valuable driver training course in a few hours. It is also a perfect ‘breakout’ accompaniment to a company conference.

After a 30 minute briefing and overview, guests are introduced to their personal instructor before the practical segment begins.

The course combines skidpan time, with ABS braking techniques on a simulated wet road, turntable activities and general driving techniques. Each participant has ample time to practice and refine the skills being taught.

Technique Training Includes:-

  • Driver posture and stability
  • General road issues
  • Control techniques e.g. steering
  • Safety zones
  • Information intake
  • Controlled relaxation
  • Cornering paths
  • Instructor to student ratio = 1:3
Training concludes with an overview on correct following distances and braking physics before a closing presentation to round out the course.

The entire course is conducted within the confines of the Performance Driving Centre on the Gold Coast.


Half-Day Program – 8:30am-12:45pm; Junior pre-license courses are available. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time.
