Low Risk Driving Course – One Day
The Low Risk Driving Course is a combination of classroom theory and practical driving. All driving takes place on road in real traffic situations near your workplace or the training venue. This course is not about developing high level car control skills. Instead, drivers are shown how to manage their safety more effectively by motivating their intrinsic desire to stay safe. Most importantly, participants learn how to sustain on-going positive change with their driving.
Broadly speaking, the course aims to help participants develop skills in four main areas; Preparing for failure – implementing prior steps to minimize injury if a mistake is made when driving Objective risk assessment – learning to measure driving risks and develop a range of strategies to use on road Motivating for safety – developing a thinking style that promotes safer driving Feedback – becoming ‘self-critical’ about safety performance
Research indicates that constructive feedback from colleagues can be powerful. As a part of the practical drive component, our trainers are skilled at incorporating the concept of Peer Feedback to inform participants on how well they use the Low Risk Driving strategies they have been taught.
On completion of the course each participant receives a certificate detailing the topics covered.
- Posture & Seat Belts
- Driving Risk & Risk Taking Behaviour
- Scanning & Observations
- Optimism Bias
- Safety Ownership
- Resolving Safety/Risk Conflicts

All participants receive a workbook, memory prompts and an opportunity to provide feedback about their experiences to CDTA. Every lesson is complimented by a video presentation specifically produced by CDTA‘s Product Development Unit.
The course has been designed to meet a wide range of learning styles and literacy levels. The Low Risk Driving Course is appropriate for all drivers regardless of the type of vehicle they use.
