The half day course is ideal for drivers who have some experience but need to improve their manoeuvring skills or, are perhaps, changing to a different kind of vehicle and simply need a ´refresher´. The course consists of on-road awareness training and realistic manoeuvring exercises.

For the full day course, individuals have more opportunity to hone their advanced driving skills and increase their awareness of the road environment.
