Our Defensive Driving Course includes:
Accident Prevention: The Think and Do of driving; The SIPDE Process: Dynamic skills required to deal with road hazards.
Motor Law: What constitutes negligent driving; Causation; Factors Contributing to the occurrence of Motor Vehicle Accidents.
Fatigue Management: Become aware of the challenges that sleep deprivation present to a driver. We briefly look at the dangers, possible solutions and causes.
Defensive Driving Theory:Defensive Driving is a tried and tested method specifically designed to prevent road accidents and collisions. It ensures that nothing is left to chance and nothing is overlooked, and the training is focused on developing the driver’s strategy in recognising-,dealing with- and re-acting to road hazards and the mistakes of other road users. Trainees are taught how to minimise their own mistakes, and how to create a “safety cushion” around their vehicles when driving in traffic, i.e.to have enough time and space to think and react correctly to hazards which may pose a threat to their safety.
Skid-pan Practical, Vehicle Control, Collision Avoidance:Few drivers have the opportunity to learn how to apply the techniques of accident prevention, collision avoidance, as well as loss of control prevention, under controlled conditions. The only way to achieve this is through a Skid-pan training session, where trainees can acquire essential practical driving skills and are taught how to deal with emergency situations, how to remain in control of their vehicles at all times, especially when driving on wet roads, and how to prevent and avoid a collision.
Defensive Driving Practical:Road-Craft deals with the practical application of the rules and techniques of Defensive Driving. Trainees receive individual instruction, on the public road,and are provided with a detailed analysis of their current level of proficiency. This will assist the trainee in preparing for the Final Test,which is attended ± 4 weeks after completion of this module.
Defensive Driving Assessment: During the Final Test, the candidate’s performance is evaluated and measured against the Killarney Advanced Driving course standard. If successful, a Killarney Certificate of Proficiency will be issued, which will be valid for two years.
This will mean that a two yearly test will then be required to renew the Certificate of Proficiency, once it has expired.
This course is attended in the delegate's own vehicle and aCertificate of Competence is issued on completion of the day.
