John Bowe driving courses are good. Avoid the AAMI one, it is pathetic. At the AAMI one they told every one that the best way to stop a non abs car is to lock up all 4 wheels.

Re: defencive driving corse

Yes, I highly recommend the John Bowe driving courses. I've done the first and second (Drive to Survive, and Advanced Driving) and I've got to say it's really excellent value for money, great fun, not forgetting that you'll learn very important driving and handling techniques. I suggest you give them a call. Look for Dean, he's a top bloke.

Yep, Dean at John Bowe is the way to go.
