Rachael Taito

I really enjoyed the course. I found that the instructor was knowledgeable in terms of road safety, in terms of hazard perception. I definitely took away with me a lot of information in terms of road safety that I have already started to apply whilst I am driving. The instructor was also welcoming and very engaging. I found it engaging that the instructor would ask everyone doing the course question to keep it engaging and inclusive.

The Awesome SDC was amazing. Scott was really good and made the 3 hours of theory so fun that it felt like 30 minutes. The drive was also very good as we drove around Newcastle learning a bunch of new tips to become safer. Definitely worth the time to get hours, learn and have fun.

Emily Ford

I did the Safer Drivers Course at Tuggerah library with Scott Buchanan as the facilitator and my instructor for the 2nd part of the course. The course was enjoyable and engaging, which is great and crucial for such an important and often boring topic to discuss. The course has lots to offer and learn on the topics of safety and awareness. I learnt so much when I went! And the time flew by!! There was plenty of information, but it was taught in such a way that it didn't go in one ear and out the other. In the second part of the course Scott, another member of the course, and I went on our drive to put what we learnt into action. Scott was very easy to understand and listen to, which was really great because I can be a bit slow in understanding things. He also taught me so many new things I didn't know, as this was my first drive with an instructor. Overall I really enjoyed the experience and learnt a lot, it is most definitely worth the money, and hey the hours are pretty good too ;) Thank you so much to the safer drivers course for the course itself and how much you offer and teach!!! I would recommend this to anyone questioning whether they should take the course or not!!

Taylor Chaudhary

The Safer Driver Course was really good and I left feeling like a safer driver. The combination of theory work and the practical driving lesson was very helpful for my future P's test and driving for the rest of my life. The driving lesson was in an automatic car which pleased me as I usually drive a manual car and I want to be experienced in both car types. The group session where we discussed real life situations really resonated with me as it could happen to me in the future, e.g. driving my friends somewhere.

Jessica Pracy

Jerry Van Wyk and his team are able to facilitate people of all ages to learn about the hazards of Driving. As an older student attending the course, I didn't feel uncomfortable and was able to feel included in the workshops. I don't quite remember my in-car coach, however, she was friendly, nice to talk to and gave really important pointers for driving. This has helped me realise the dangers of driving and since then I have become a more confident driver. Thanks!

5 Stars

Jake Elliott

The safer drivers course indeed helped me become a safer driver! I found the theory section especially useful as it was well organized and easy to follow. The content was very informative about the various hazards one may encounter while driving, and how to deal with each one specifically. I highly recommend it to all learner drivers.

I did my safer drivers course with Scott Holding at Chifley apartments. Not only do you get 20 hours but you get so much knowledge ! I felt so comfortable with Scott. He is the nicest person you'll ever meet. SO so glad I went. I loved doing with Holdings that much I ended up doing driving lessons with them as well however I couldn't get in with Scott and did my lessons with Mark who was so great as well. So worth it guys !

Jason was very helpful in conveying the consequences that may come with disobeying road rules, or the use of unsafe driving behaviours. Difficulties with the Module 2 were quickly solved, helping all of the other students keep focused on the important information being given throughout the course.

I cannot recommend the Awesome SDC enough to anyone who is looking to learn more about road safety when on their L’s and about safe driving when on their P’s! I thought I knew most things about being a safe driver before this course, however I didn’t, and this course helped me open my eyes to more things to be aware of when driving. The teacher i had was Scott Holding and I couldn’t of had a better teacher, he lead the class perfectly and made the class some what more fun. I definitely recommend this course to anyone who is on their L’s, it has helped me so much!

This program was great.
one of the main things in this program is common sense, which is an important part of driving. This program goes through everything which would be needed on the road.
They go through different distractions and how it is needed to prevent them.
Great course and the driving instructors kept up to this standard.
