Someone wise once said we never own up to being a lousy lover or a lousy driver – but you can improve at least one of those, if you enrol in a defensive driving school!

Be a Better Driver

Let’s be honest, learning to pass our driving test is just the start of what we really need to know to be safe on the road, and that’s where a good defensive driving school comes into its own.
So why not make the investment in a course at Norwell Motorplex? The instructors at this defensive driving school will teach you skills that will help you stay out of trouble, no matter whether if you are a rookie driver, or have been on the road for years.

Doing a course at a defensive driving school makes you more than just a steering wheel attendant – it puts you in control so you can learn how to avoid trouble before it happens.
A defensive driving school course will also teach you about the importance of your own attitude, behaviour and awareness in keeping yourself safe. It’s amazing what a difference being proactive, rather than reactive, can be.

At the Norwell Motorplex, the defensive driving school team of instructors will teach you about vehicle dynamics – or how the car works – in both safe and risky situations, and what you can do inside your ‘office’ so you have more control. Think about seating, steering and vision.
The defensive driving school course will teach you the correct way to brake, whether you have ABS or not. You’ll also learn how to identify potentially risky situations and how you and the car will react to them, and how you can prevent them before they happen, or control them, if you can’t avoid them.

During your tuition at the defensive driving school, you will work with qualified experienced instructors at your own pace. The defensive driving course is a mix of theory and practice, and the combination will help you become more intuitive behind the wheel, learning what you need to know to keep yourself and other road users safe.

For most of us, passing the driving test is all we ever do, in terms of ‘learning to drive. We don’t ever really practise what we’ve been taught before the test, unless we lose our licence for some reason, or need to pass the test again when we are old!
Through your course at the defensive driving school, you will become more aware of what can happen when you drive fast and how hard it can be to control your car when your speed increases.
More importantly, at the end of your day at the defensive driving school, you will have a greater understanding of how to be a safer driver.
