On Road – Low Risk Driving

At Performance Driving Australia, we empower you to become a safer driver through our comprehensive On-Road Low-Risk Driving Programs.

By training on the road, we equip you with essential low-risk defensive driving skills that can be customised to include tactical driving, off-road operations like gravel driving, and towing.

Alternatively, our venue based Defensive Driver Training programs offer a secure environment for practicing emergency braking and hazard avoidance.

Both our venue-based Defensive Driver Training and On-Road Low-Risk Driving programs are highly effective.

To gain a comprehensive skillset for managing your vehicle in various situations, we recommend considering both programs.

Explore our range of Low-Risk Driving programs, including:

    1. Driver Assessments for pre-employment or routine checks.
    2. Driver Coaching/Training, offering on-road tips and guidance.
    3. High-Risk Operations support for drivers working in challenging environments.
    4. Gravel Driving expertise.
    5. 4WD Operations training.
    6. Towing skills development.

Our On-Road Low-Risk Driving Program consists of three key components:

    1. Observation: We observe your driving in your everyday working environment.
    2. Coaching: Our trainers provide hands-on coaching to help you apply defensive driving techniques, including emergency stops.
    3. Assessment: We assess your driving against our corporate driver standards, providing the results to your employer or supervisor for review.

Typically, each program lasts 30-90 minutes per driver. Upon completion, you’ll be well-prepared to apply safe driving techniques in diverse scenarios. Our on-road training is suitable for all drivers and vehicle types.

For a comprehensive training solution, many organisations choose to combine our Defensive Driving course with our On-Road Low-Risk Driving Program.

These are some of the primary factors contributing to road crashes in Australia, highlighting the importance of safe driving practices and road infrastructure maintenance.

Speeding: Driving above the speed limit or too fast for road conditions greatly increases the risk of accidents.

Driver Distraction: Activities such as using mobile phones, eating, or adjusting controls while driving can divert attention from the road and lead to collisions.

Alcohol and Drug Impairment: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs judgment, coordination, and reaction times, significantly increasing the likelihood of crashes.

Fatigue: Driver fatigue can impair concentration and reaction times, leading to lapses in judgment and an increased risk of accidents, especially during long journeys.

Reckless Driving: Aggressive driving behaviors such as tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic, and disregarding traffic signals contribute to accidents on Australian roads.

Poor Weather Conditions: Rain, fog, and other adverse weather conditions reduce visibility and traction, making it more challenging to control vehicles and increasing the likelihood of accidents.

Failure to Obey Traffic Laws: Ignoring traffic signs, signals, and road rules, such as failure to give way or stop at intersections, can result in collisions.

Driver Inexperience: Inexperienced drivers may lack the skills and confidence to handle unexpected situations on the road, increasing their vulnerability to accidents.

Vehicle Defects: Mechanical failures such as brake failures, tire blowouts, or steering problems can lead to loss of control and accidents if vehicles are not properly maintained.

Poor Road Conditions: Potholes, uneven surfaces, inadequate signage, and poorly designed roads can contribute to accidents, particularly if drivers are caught off guard or unable to navigate safely.

Managing your vehicle, avoiding hazards and getting from A to B efficiently requires training and systems.
