Although Today Tonight would have to be the worst so-called 'current affairs' program on television, I'm feeling a bit compelled to watch

The results will be obvious.... my bet is 90% of all drivers would fail such tests.

I saw the ad, and the driving instructor was yelling at one guy, "Brakes, hit the brakes!!!" The guy didn't, and spun.

The instructor was Ian Luff of Motivation Australia.

I did a defensive driving course with him at Oran Park once, and he is a great driver/teacher.

I was driving around the skid pan, when he pulled the handbrake on. The car threw sideways, I took the handbrake off and held it in a drift with the power on.

Why did I tell you guys this? Because he does this on the TV, and the majoity of people spin. These rice boys jut don't know how to drive.

(I knew flogging my old mans car through the bush when I was on my P's taught me something)

Tongue Selection criteria

I think they just went to Brighton one night this week and took a random sample of rice drivers from down there.
The only criteria (other than "got rice") was more than one peice of gold jewellery per man and a brother named Habib.

Yeah I too have done a defensive driving course with Ian Luff. It was sensational! I can't recommend these courses enough.

I did mine just after I passed my driving test and found it invaluable. Its amazing to watch just how many people struggle to pull their car up quickly during an emercency stop situation. In fact its scary that these people are allowed on to the road.

It really shows you how poor the licencing system is. Personally I believe that some sort of driving course should be implemented into the licence system.

Absoultely! advanced driving courses should be paid for by the gov with all the money they get from speeding fines.
The are brillent and worth every penny.
I was lucky as my Grandma paid for mine when I first got my licence it has saved my bacon a few times.
