Country Driving Program

Country Driving Program – Driving in regional and rural areas requires a different skill set to city driving. Performance Driving Australia design and deliver country driving programs to assist drivers who spend the bulk of their driving in regional areas.

The Performance Driving Australia Defensive Driving course is recommended for drivers who do a mix of country and city driving. This course covers 90% of the basic skills and knowledge you require to drive in a city or rural area. If you have not done this course and you have specific requirements ask us about how we can add content for your group.

Country Driving Programs can include a variety of content depending on the clients requirements, vehicles and working environment.

The Country Driving Program can include theory and/or practical training in the following –

Driving on loose/unsealed roads

High speed driving on country roads (max 110/kmh)

4WD operations

Identifying and avoiding hazards including animals, pot holes, debris on the road etc.

Use of lights for night driving

Managing trips and fatigue

Vehicle preparation for long distance driving

Basic mechanical repairs and maintenance

Country Driving etiquette

Trailer Towing

This is a sample of the content that can be included in a Performance Driving Australia country driving program.

Each program is created with the client so that participants gain the required skills and knowledge to drive safely in remote or rural areas.

Please note that our standard Defensive Driving Course does include all of the above topics also. A Country Driving course typically involves practical sessions with higher speed aspects including braking and cornering and can include on-road sessions as well as training at our approved venues.
