Honda Australia do some driver course things. They're located at St. Ives in Sydney. I'll probably be doing one of these courses once I get my P's. Give them a call on (02) 9144 5725

Jim Murcott Driver Training operate out of Oran Park.

I'm not sure of the cost as the company picked up the tab, gotta thank the OH&S laws for that one. If I'm expected to drive at work then my employer had better be sure I know how :)

One of the best things I ever did. I made sure my 18yo newphew & neices boyfriend went as well once they started to drive.

Kieran, I did a murcott course...at oran park...it was great....they start with basics...general car control and skid techniques etc.....made me a much better driver...you learn your attitude (to driving)plays a big role in how drive/avoid situations as well/. I payed around 200 (i did it when i just turned 18 so i got a discount and stuff.

since then i have done a wakefeild track day with the Honda car club of NSW cost was 130 incl wakefeild license...this is even better than the defensive course IMO. they have professional drivers teaching u basic racecraft and stuff...u learn sum great stuff. The ones with the mx5 crew are even better (i have not been on one of these yet, but my mates have) and they go so far as to group u into classes and perform mini races.

You learn heaps about ur car and skill....or lack of!!!!

be warned though....ur brakes will shit themselves after about 6 laps....and you will easy go through 1/2 a set of tyres on the track days.

definately worth while....however, becareful on the way home...i found i was driving really agressively after wakefeild....dont want to give the govt anymore money...already pay enough to keep my car onthe road!

I'm prob gonna go to the next mx5/honda track day if ur interested...(they have them every couple months)
