Thumbs up Defensive Driving course for NSW

Hey guys,

I have been checking into a driving course for us & has come across a little jem

The Jim Murcott Driving Centre one day Defensive Driving Program Level 1 .....

Heres an excerp from their webpage about this course

"Suitable for all drivers from ‘P’ Platers to 80 year olds
The one day Defensive Driving Program Level 1 is suited to drivers of regular passenger vehicles (including four wheel drives and light commercial vehicles).
The mix of practical and theoretical sessions deliver actual on-road safety skills that underpin proactive driving.
The course is based on the BAAMS Safety System™ exclusive to Jim Murcott Driving Centre.
The BAAMS system recognises that safe driving is dependent on:

*
BEHAVIOUR
*
ATTITUDE
*
AWARENESS
*
MOTIVATION and
*
SKILL.

Other elements of the program include:
HAZARD DETECTION -
LOOK UP - STAY BACK the technique and skill of reading ahead and indentifying hazards.
Vehicle safety - checklist, driving position, tyres and pressures.

PRACTICAL LEARNING - undestanding relationship between reaction time, speed and stopping distances.

VEHICLE DYNAMICS - undersatanding what causes skids and vehicle instability.


KEY ROAD LAWS - practical interpretation.

All practical training conducted on wet roads at suburban speeds.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS of Defensive Driving: Practical systems for drivers to increase their safety and efficiency.
Learning objectives

Learn how vehicles perform in an emergency.
Evaluate your own level of skill in day to day emergencies.
Improve decision making and perceptual skills.
Develop a positive attitude towards defensive driving."

I am sure we would all benefit from a course such as this & they have a special on ..........NORMALLY $250 for the course .......but if we do it on the set dates in December it will only cost $99 ........

I know this is a bargain price & heres the link to the webpage I found it on ....

http://www.murcott.com.au/

These courses book out really quickly & I have spoken to them today by phone & they only accept the first 40 people....they have 5 bookings already..... SO WE MUST BE QUICK

Let me know if you are interested !!!!!!!

Re: Defensive Driving course for NSW

Have not long got off the phone to Murcotts, We can get Sat 20th December

Please PM me with your full names & how you would like to pay the $99 as we have to pay with the booking.

So far I seem to have 7 guys & 1 possible .... there is room for more if anyone else is interested.

If you dont think you will have a car at that time dont panic .....we are allowed 2 drivers per car

I was also thinking of maybe having a bit of a cruise there so we all arrive together & maybe one after the course .... what do you guys think ?????

Re: Defensive Driving course for NSW

K... Will talk to you on #eseries to give you all the info tonight! I am a definite now.

Others - get your PM's in and book yourself a good day out. It's a bargain price and others that I have talked to, who have done the course, agree its well worth the regular price, let alone the christmas bargain!

Cheers.......... Tim!
