What is the Safer Drivers Course?

The Safer Drivers Course (SDC) is a safe driving course for learner drivers who receive 20 hours in their learner logbooks. The purpose of the SDC was to ultimately reduce the number of serious injury and fatal crashes involving inexperienced drivers once they transition to their P’s.

This awesome  Safer Drivers Course is a great introduction to help learner drivers gain a better understanding about influential factors whilst operating a motor vehicle. The SDC aims to help young drivers understand the importance of unnecessary risk taking, distractions and internal and external influences, that can affect a drivers ability to stay safe. To help educate our young drivers, learners will be taught how to manage internal and external influences. They will learn how to look further and plan ahead whilst identifying and responding appropriately to hazards and developing hazards.

To be eligible to complete this awesome Safer Drivers Course, participants must meet the following requirements;


hold a valid learner licence


complete a minimum of 50 actual driving hours (not 3 for 1 bonus hours) and;


be under 25 years of age

Can I do the course in a manual vehicle?

We only provide automatic vehicles for students to complete the course. We want all students to focus on the course components and not the operation of the clutch and gears.

Can I fail the course?

No. There is no assessment or pass/ fail component of the SDC. However, participants must complete both course modules to be eligible for the 20 hour log book credit.
